Wow, finally an apology to Jason Lee, that should be worth watching! I hope Lee makes him squirm... A reminder: |
'“Baddiel and Skinner, did they realise the impact of what they were saying, how it affected so many people?
“Especially a hairstyle, you’re talking about ethnicity, a lot of black people would wear dreadlocks and feel deeply offended by someone who’s getting mocked for a similar hairstyle. The implications were far wider, and it wouldn’t happen today.
“You see [Wilfried] Zaha playing today, and others with similar hairstyles, it couldn’t happen today, and blackface as well, you wouldn’t be able to blackface now, that’s crazy.”
Lee says, as far as he is aware, Baddiel and Skinner have never tried to contact him to apologise.
“Luke Chadwick was going through a similar thing [being mocked for his appearance on the panel show ‘They Think It’s All Over’] and he got an apology from Nick Hancock. I never received an apology from Baddiel and Skinner.' - https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/jason-lee-david-baddiel-frank-skinner-apology-comedy-sketches-a9592741.html
