I also don't think either should be using their work as a lever for politicial stuff too.
I agree.

Re: Of complaints

They both need the exposure in order to keep their names in lights and their saleability...so jumping on the BLM bandwagon suits them both right now. I suspect neither of them actually gives a damn about BLM

Re: Of complaints

Politics has long been a part of popular culture, ban it and you ban a long history of political art, political cinema, protest song and so on.
Just because BLM is a trendy bete noire for the unthinking Right, a lot of people complained about BGT. How many of those complainers actually watched it? A lot less than actually complained I would wager. As importantly, what proportion of the total viewers complained? A very small percentage. Mountains out of molehills.

The anniversary of the death of KEITH BLAKELOCK is approaching, remember him? The copper who received over forty injuries from knives and machetes at the hands of black rioters at Broadwater Farm.

I'm just guessing here but I doubt a re-enactment of that would be allowed.

How come if you criticise a black person it's racist (the criticism might not have anything to do with colour) but if a black person criticises a white person (about his privileged white background) it's not.....

Some big plan to drive a huge wedge between whites and blacks. If anyone thinks that all this BLM stuff will help integration, they are seriously wrong.

It's certainly hasn't helped in fact it seems to have had the opposite effect, it appears to have damaged race relations unfortunately.

I don't get influenced easily, but I think of BLM now every time I see a black person....
