I don't find him amusing in the slightest. I cannot stomache the sight of him. He gets paid lots of money for being a complete moron.

It's not "all good" though when our younger generation are being influenced by this. Yes, I can switch it off but my teenagers think he is great angry

I think he is meant to be funny, rather than just vile. But he isn't funny IMO, just stupid and vile, especially to women. Being crude to women is now deemed to be perfectly acceptable in these shows and Holly W and Fearne C went along with it? (more talentless morons, jeez).

"Smash her back door in", you have got to be kidding - that is said on TV and amongst young men? If anyone ever said that in my presence, they would think very hard about saying it again (assuming they had any teeth left).

Don't anyone watch The Inbetweeners then if you are easily offended.

AnyFuckerForAMincePie Sat 01-Dec-12 15:01:53

My 12 yo said "smash her back doors in" the other week. It is really pervasive will be in the Oxford dictionary before we know it

AnyFuckerForAMincePie Sat 01-Dec-12 15:04:18

I don't mind the Imbetweeners as much, because the protagonists are constantly operated as the immature tickets they are

Keith Lemon is just snide, nasty and old enough to know better

AnyFuckerForAMincePie Sat 01-Dec-12 15:05:29

I meant portrayed

AnyFuckerForAMincePie Sat 01-Dec-12 15:06:34

And fuckwits, not tickets

This bloody MN app

AFForAMincePie - the level of hatred and contempt of women in this expression is actually honestly shocking. I think I would cry if my DD mentioned that expression to me. If I ever overheard my son saying that or laughing at that, he would never forget my reaction.

janelikesjam Sat 01-Dec-12 15:14:03

p.s. As a middle-aged adult I have only heard that expression in the last 6 months somewhere (probably on MN mind hmm).

AnyFuckerForAMincePie Sat 01-Dec-12 15:17:37

Jane, my reaction is something that day will never forget, rest assured

The thing is though, was simply parroting something he heard at school...he didn't really understand what he was sayinh

AnyFuckerForAMincePie Sat 01-Dec-12 15:17:57

Ds, fgs

singingmum Sat 01-Dec-12 15:23:55

Hate hate hate this character and any mind that can imagine it. How utterly vile and annoying.
I truly cannot stand him and I only saw adverts(didn't know who it was at first) but it was more than enough for me to loathe. YUCK!!!!!

SecretNutellaFix Sat 01-Dec-12 15:24:55

cannot be doing with him.

AppleOgies Sat 01-Dec-12 15:33:15

You are not alone... He makes my skin crawl!

LaCiccolina Sat 01-Dec-12 15:35:27

He's (the person that plays him, I do realise he's not real!) the next jimmy Saville as far as I can tell. Makes my neck hair stand up. Far too rubby knees and phwoar for me. Gives me shivers....

SDTGisAChristmassyWolefGenius Sat 01-Dec-12 16:30:46

He makes my skin crawl too - I cannot comprehend how anyone finds him funny. Thank heaven I am not alone.

SecretNutellaFix Sat 01-Dec-12 16:37:14

Same as I cannot stand Reeves and Mortimer.

bamboostalks Sat 01-Dec-12 16:37:18

Foul sexist crap. Saw him in cafe in park in Grovelands Park and he was obnoxious to woman serving him.

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Sat 01-Dec-12 16:39:02

I can't stand him either, makes my flesh crawl.

DyeInTheEar Sat 01-Dec-12 20:51:34

I like Inbetweeners - the series though not so much the film.

Keith Lemon does not make me laugh - at all, ever. Got nothing to do with being offended, a prude, not getting the joke etc. Just not funny or clever.

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sun 02-Dec-12 15:39:17

Ugh, I can't stand him either. He is a vulgar little man.

hiviolet Sun 02-Dec-12 18:53:11

You know he isn't real, right? It's an act, like Al Murray's Pub Landlord isn't real grin

Although, like the Pub Landlord, I expect the irony is lost on Keith Lemon's biggest fans because they're a bit thick

edam Sun 02-Dec-12 18:58:50

Can't stand him. Just do Not Get It At All and find the misogyny so wearing. Yadda yadda yadda it's been done before for more than 1,000 years and no, it's not clever and ironic, the people laughing think it's straight-up funny - at least half of them are missing the 'irony'. Comedians in the UK wouldn't dare to tell racist jokes claiming they are 'ironic' so why is it OK to tell sexist jokes?

(NB dh and I used to write comedy, never found the need to be sexist or racist or disablist - and some of the people we worked with have gone on to really great things without being any of those, either. Bill Bailey, for one.)

Jellykat Sun 02-Dec-12 19:21:43

He just gives me the creeps.
I can't see anything amusing in anything he's ever done or said.

No I get the idea but not a fan of chav male human. Keith Lemon is like what would happen if Jeremy Kyle did comedy.
I didn't get Bo Selecta either.
Much prefer Jack Whitehall and Russell Howard
