Utter garbage article. As said, not a single complaint would have been made.

 

As for Tyler, he has been slagged off all season on Twitter, he is past it, this just gave people an ideal excuse to pretend to be outraged.

I think it reveals a sneering and perhaps quite an old fashioned attitude to the cuisine of other countries.

Perhaps Len Goodman should stick to, well whatever it is that he is expert in, and leave the culinary critiques to people who have more knowledge in these matters.

A comment quoted in The Times sums up this ludicrous PC over reaction very well :

 

Apparently the BBC is getting a lot of complaints about what Len Goodman's grandmother said years ago about foreign food.

A lot of people said exactly the same thing back then because it was new to them.

What Len said was [just] a fact.

How can people have a problem with that ?

 

Absolutely.

Why are so many people determined to be offended these days ?

This thread would be just as appropriate in the thread "Modern life is rubbish", that's how absurd it is, and worrying. You cannot say anything these days, and the trend is inescapable........

Didn't Len Goodman go for a curry with Ainsley Harriet at the Sweet Centre in Bradford? He seemed to enjoy that...

Indeed. Thats because the OP posted the article without actually reading it.

True that... also, has this "apology" actually been given...

 

...can't see any evidence of it happening (for obvious reasons).

Given your numerous posts in the forum, most of which (on face value) appear to be largely the same sort of thing....

 

...I can't help but feel you might the best placed poster here to answer that question?

John Lydon was on that awful Phil and Holly programme last week I think it was and he said a swear word on there.

It was live and not seen anyone offended by that, made me laugh though Phil Schofield didn't know where to put his face

« Old fashioned attitude », or just someone using everyday language and ruffling a few « languages police »  feathers.

I have an issue with people «  virtue signalling «  but wouldn’t stop folk from , say, waving a Ukrainian flag or anything

This is all I can find: "Later in the show, Clare Balding issued an apology for if 'anyone took offence' to remarks made earlier in the show."

That's the most ironic (and funniest) thing I have ever read on here.

Particularly on the Covid threads (but also more recently on Modern Life is Rubbish and the Biased BBC thread) it is, very ironically, the PC Wallahs* who are by far the most offensive and personal on this entire forum.

 

* the ones who think no expense is too great or no edict or law banning anything and everything is too severe, in order to avoid upsetting someone, " literally anything is acceptable in order to stop the possibility of anyone getting upset".

Hypocrites.

When the war started I thought people having the Ukraine flag on their whatever was virtue signalling. But the penny dropped, it's actually very important. It's not the message it sends to the Ukrainians, or even the Russians, that is important, no, it's the message its sends to our own government, i.e. the UK population wants them to support the Ukraine in every possible way regardless of the cost or how long they have to do it for.

No apology was necessary, it just panders to these people and encourages them in their PC over sensitivity.

No one can descibe that as 'foreign muck'!  Some cultures find cheese disgusting/repulsive!

Very true !!!...

 

Does it matter that is grandmother didn’t like curry powder...

 

I like curry chicken,oxtail and curry mutton and I also eat a roast pork dinner it has no taste whatsoever and I couldn’t eat it every day but so what !!!!...

 

If we we’re all the same and thought the same it would be a very boring place to live in !!!...

 

We are now living in a world where we can’t say or do anything without someone picking up on it and turning it into a negative !!!....

 


The way the world is going at this rate is a Bu##**#* world where everyone is fake and to scared to say and do what they truly want !!!...
