Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom has dismissed more than 3,000 complaints about Britain’s Got Talent contestant Nabil Abdulrashid, citing “freedom of expression” as a reason not to investigate.
The stand-up comedian, from south London, tackled racism and dance troupe Diversity’s Black Lives Matter-inspired routine while competing on the ITV show this month.
His performance sparked 985 complaints on October 3 and 2,199 during the final on October 10. Complaints focused on his stereotyping of right-wing white people and anti-white jokes, promotion of Black Lives Matter and references to Winston Churchill.
