Jo Brand 'Throw Acid instead of Milk Shake'!

I have to confess as never liking Jo Brand anyway, bit to slutty (yes I did mean SMUTTY but didn't realise until it was pointed out later that it said SLUTTY - I did not edit it out as I did not want it said I had done so after some had taken offence !) for me but I cannot believe, at the moment, the BBC is actually condoning her comment that instead of Milk Shakes being thrown at politicians it should be Corrosive substance i.e. Acid!
What a terrible terrible thing to say. When asked she said Freedom of Speech in COMEDY is " extremely important."
What ever was she thinking - bet those who have suffered having Acid thrown in their faces will really find that funny!

Typical left wing response by the BBC.

I actually don't even find her funny. Not a very appropriate comment even if said in jest and not meant to be taken seriously.

I think its now being looking into as, quite rightly, there have been so many complaints about it.
I agree freedom of speech is important, but so is common sense, and saying people should throw acid at someones else is definitely cross crossing the line.

Never been more on the same page.

At least she should be sacked from BBC contracts, at best cautioned and prosecuted by the Police.

It struck me how she and those who condone this so called joke would feel if next week somebody did just what she said would be funny?

It says as much about the BBC as it does about her.

Making such a comment whether in 'jest' or not is unacceptable.
I'm disappointed in Jo Brand as I actually normally like her.

I don't see any difference in this and what the other person did with the 'royal' photo she should absolutely be sacked, both were in extremely bad taste and offensive,

Im not a great fan of Jo Brand, but I do recognise a poor joke on a satirical radio programme when I hear one. She immediately made it clear, on air, she was joking and criticised the milkshake stunts.
Radio 4 has a long tradition of satirical programmes and Ive heard equally unsavoury jokes that didnt attract anything like the attention that this has. Lets see it for what it is.
