Now The Royle Family is given a 'woke' discriminatory language warning by the BBC
THE Royle Family is the latest BBC show to get a “woke” discriminatory language warning.
The 1998-2012 comedy, now on iPlayer, features Ricky Tomlinson’s grouchy couch potato Jim Royle dishing out old-fashioned barbs.
In series two, episode three, he watches DIY show Changing Rooms and calls host Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen a “nancy boy”.
Warnings have also been slapped on Fawlty Towers, Allo Allo! and Dad’s Army.
Robin Aitken, a BBC worker for 25 years, blasted: “More wokeness.
“Combing archives to ensure shows are politically correct is sinister and laughable.”
A TV fan tweeted: “Just another nail in the coffin of this ridiculous broadcaster.”
BBC said: “Older programmes contain language that some viewers find offensive, inappropriate or which have now fallen out of use.
“For that reason, we do make that clear on iPlayer and elsewhere.”
