Diversity’s Ashley Banjo has addressed the record number of complaints made over their Black Lives Matter performance on Britain’s Got Talent – after Jim Davidson’s vile rant.

The dance troupe have currently notched up more than 23,000 Ofcom complaints over the emotional routine, which is the second most complained about TV moments of the last few years.

Taking to Instagram, the 31-year-old shared a light-hearted snap of himself and daughter Rosie, joking they were ‘patiently waiting’ for the top spot – which currently belongs to Roxanne Pallett over her Celebrity Big Brother punchgate situation.

‘Just me and Rosie patiently watching as we head for the number 1 spot,’ he captioned the picture.

‘In other news though, I was out and about today and felt so much love from people.

‘Never let the minority warp the reality… This country really is Great #Diversity #ofcom.’

Ashley’s post comes after Jim Davidson took aim at Diversity’s Black Lives Matter routine in an explicit YouTube video, uploaded last week.

Calling the performance ‘ridiculous’, the comedian fumed: ‘They’re all dressed as BLM people, of course, and they ended up with a policeman’s knee on the neck of a black man. 

‘I thought that was the most indulgent piece of stuff I’ve seen in ages. What was the point? Why do we have to re-enact some poor man’s death? I saw it on the day that a black man was charged with murdering someone in Birmingham and injuring quite badly seven other people…

‘Perhaps Diversity should have a look at that shouldn’t they, and not do that f***ing dance in Birmingham around the families. Perhaps you can do it as a little piece for the funeral, that will cheer everybody up.

‘And put in the middle of the dance the fact that all the BLM people are now threatening other people, especially in America, for not putting the fist up or taking the knee. 

‘Well don’t f***ing come round South East London, because we don’t want to take the knee. We’ve been growing up with black people around us for years and years and years and there doesn’t seem to be a f***ing problem, until these young millennial people f***ing started.

‘I don’t know what you want. Diversity, what the f*** do you want? You want to be famous, don’t you? You want to be all around the world. That’s why you’re doing it, you don’t give a f*** about George. F***ing ridiculous.’ 

Davidson continued: ‘You really believed in your young, never get on The Chase, stupid f***ing minds that this will decrease racial hatred. 

‘What more can people do before you say, oh that’s enough now? You don’t see white couples on adverts anymore, do you? Most TV presenters are non-white. The Golden Girls, that’s being made by black people. Tom and Jerry’s mum will probably be reinstated.

‘And there’s loads of white people sticking up for you. Young white girls walking around with banners, “defund the police”, “support black people”. Well, I say most young girls. Gemma’s sister is not holding up a banner as she was violently mugged by three black men. Perhaps Diversity can do a mugging thing.’

While some viewers have praised the Celebrity Big Brother star for ’saying it like it is,’ others have voiced their outrage at the clip, accusing him of racism.

Slamming the backlash, he insisted that he ‘can’t be shut up’ and ‘kicked off’ as it’s his own YouTube channel.
