Katie Price is getting her lawyers involved after Frankie Boyle made a joke about her son Harvey on his Tramadol Nights show:

'I have a theory about the reason Jordon - she needed a man strong enough to stop Harvey from fucking her'

He also said:

'Jordon and Peter Andre are still fighting each other over custody of Harvey - eventually one of them will lose and one of them will have to keep him'

Let's support Katie Price and Harvey and report this cold-hearted fucker to Ofcom. If he comes anywhere near my town, I think I might pay him a visit.

Sorry, that was meant to read:

'I have a theory about the reason Jordon married a cage fighter...'

The show, Tramadol nights, was on Tuesday 7th December according to articles.

what a shit! don't have enough cross faces to put after this, ofcom here I come.

I have made my complaint to Ofcom and looked up where he is doing his next round of stand-up shows. Unfortunately, none of them near me but I will save up some rotten eggs for the occasion when he comes down this way

Frankie Boyle and that twat Jimmy Carr, should be banned from our screens............there's a thread about this but cannot remember what. It says basically "why are we not outraged that these comedians base much of their material on Special Needs and disabled jokes? It it was all about (and I HATE typing this, but I don't know how else to say it) Pakis, blacks, gays, Micks, Spicks, Chinkies etc, there'd be outrage!!!!

These so called "funny men" make it OK for us to laugh at disabled people. How is that right? Try being a mum of one of those kids Frankie and Jimmy...... see how you'd feel when other kids in the playground point and laugh. YOU'RE MAKING IT OK TO DO SO!!!

That's made me feed sick

Poogles Fri 10-Dec-10 10:08:10

I normally agree that Katie Price is fair game, however...

Shame on you Frankie Boyle! He must have run out of ideas because there are SOOOOO many jokes you can make about Katie Price without even trying and certainly without scraping the barrel like this.

wendihouse22 Fri 10-Dec-10 10:40:09

Oh God.....have just re-read my post and it's very offensive.

Think I made my point, though.

Apologies folks.

Mind you, karma has got him anyway, as his new series is absolute shit and he is getting a roasting from the critics. End of career time I reckon.

heard about this on radio, hope she sues him for all his worth!

However C4 refused to apologise and said: “The joke has been per­­formed by Frankie as part of his stage show and is an absurdist and satirical comment on high-profile individuals whose lives have been played out in the media"

oh and FB used to be a teacher!!

Ahhh, Frankie Boyle. The man who makes Thomas Cranmer a fucking riot hmm.

wendihouse22 Fri 10-Dec-10 15:49:48

How did this man get to have such a big career and following?

He's a complete twunt (and I reserve this description for those who truly deserve such a title - it being a combination of two particularly strong terms of abusive language: a tw*t and a cu*t).

If he worked in TESCO and came out with that offensive shite, they'd fire him.

donkeyderby Fri 10-Dec-10 15:52:54

Do you think he could be done for hate crime?

sickofsocalledexperts Fri 10-Dec-10 16:03:21

I think it is a hate crime. I've done my OFcom complaint - it's quite easy, just put Ofcom complaints into google. I have said that the law needs to pick up on anti-disabled insults like this - if he'd picked on Harvey for being black, he would be in serious trouble. So he picks on the disability instead. What a knob.

I also complained in more general terms about how the whole series is an offence to comedy. It is almost ridiculously unfunny, don't know if anyone saw the Knight Rider "sketch"?

SantasMooningArse Fri 10-Dec-10 16:07:50

OMFG

I didn't watch th show as I knew what to expect but how horrid.

SantasMooningArse Fri 10-Dec-10 16:09:56

Harvey is not a high profile individual who chooses to live his life out in the media; he is the young disabled son of someone who chooses that.

he deserves protection and I hope she takes FB under frankly.

sickofsocalledexperts Fri 10-Dec-10 16:10:02

Aha, you can also complain on Channel 4's website.

Triggles Fri 10-Dec-10 16:17:30

Complaint made. What a knob. I would dearly love to see him brought up in public about this and held accountable in some way.
