News: Ofcom Throws Out Complaints About Nabil Abdulrashid On Britain's Got Talent

Regulator Ofcom has rejected over 3000 complaints about comedian Nabil Abdulrashid's Britain's Got Talent semi-final and final routines.

"The comedian's satirical take on his life experiences as a black Muslim was likely to have been within audience expectations," a spokesperson said.

In the semi-final which aired on 3 October he joked about police treatment of black people, and about what "angry far-right guys" would think about someone joking about being black and Muslim.

"We just tell jokes about our lives because they matter - right?" the Croydon comic said.

2,200 complained about his set in the final on 10 October, when he mocked people who had objected to his previous routine.

"They complained because we said black lives matter...To be honest I'm shocked that many of them know how to write."

He joked that Winston Churchill must have been black because "when was the last time you met a white man called Winston?"

After the complaints mounted up he tweeted: "I'm just happy I've kept workers at Ofcom from being made redundant. I'm a hero and should be appreciated for my contribution to the economy. @Ofcom you're welcome."

Commenting on Ofcom's verdict he tweeted: "Nabil Abdulrashid: Ofcom rejects 3,000 Britain's Got Talent complaints - BAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA"
