COMEDIAN Jim Davidson suffered social media fury after posting a YouTube rant titled ‘Who Needs Variety?’ aimed at dance troupe Diversity.

He suggested that the troupe should really do a routine about black adult men mugging people, which attracted immediate response from people on Social Media.

The 66-year-old also accused that the Asian community has least regard for coronavirus restrictions as they have ‘significant family members’ residing in ‘a bubble of 300 in a f****** house’.

He accused that because of large Asian families Covid-19 was spread fast in certain areas BAME regions in the UK.

He also proposed that the steps of the BAME group may account for a boost in Covid-19 circumstances in certain locations of England.

“The BAME neighborhood, what the f*** does that mean?”, he went on asking.

While attacking the dance group, he said that they should not give a f*** about George Floyd, who was killed in the US by a policeman, as they want only ‘fame’.

“You don’t see white couples on adverts any longer, do you? Most Tv set presenters are non-white,” Davidson said in the video.

Following his comments, YouTube viewers labelled the Generation Video game host as ‘racist’.

The dance group Diversity took to the Britain’s Got Talent phase before this thirty day period for a raw efficiency inspired by the Black Lives Make a difference movement.

The team also narrated the loss of life of George Floyd in the US through their performance.

The former champions of the show, led by dancer Ashley Banjo, recited a viral poem The Good Realisation by the singer Tomfoolery, about the BLM movement and police brutality.
