As it was pre-recorded the BBC chose to broadcast it so I can't see how they can wash their hands of her.

She shouldnt of said it, its not funny. The amount of acid attacks there has been lately might give nutters ideas. Ive never really liked her anyway, another one who thinks she can say what she likes and get away with it.

I have actually listened to what she said.

The acid comment was a silly joke, which she confirmed immediately after saying it. Her point was that throwing milkshakes, even at Nigel Farage, is pathetic.

Surprised Nigel Farage is such a snowflake when Jo Brand was actually condemning the milkshake attack on him.

It was ok when she overheard someone else conversation and reported it to the bbc to get them banned. I hope she never appears on another bbc program.

So have I and what she said was that throwing milkshakes was pointless, i,e. it should have been corrosive instead!

What it is is likely to get some bloody idiot to do it. Would you 'see it for what it is' if one of your loved ones had had a corrosive substance thrown in their faces - yes some joke isnt it

She also said she would not do it.

Nor did she said anyone else should.

She said it was pathetic.

Much like Nigel Farage's outrage.

Having 3 years ago been privileged to personally meet and hear Katie Piper tell her story about her acid attack and describe in exact and disturbing detail what occurred to her and the pain both physically and mentally that she endured and still does then I am thinking that this was a very misjudged bit of comedy writing.

If you listen to Jo Brand again then her words are very deliberately chosen, so it wasnt an off the cuff satirical quip.
Yes, comedians push the envelope and I have found myself snigger at remarks that when looking back some 20 odd years were cruel and at times beyond the pale (I cite Mr Gerry Sadowitz) but I knew what to expect from him and I never paid to see him again as some things made even me feel uncomfortable.

I think the more serious point is Aunty Beeb allowed it to be broadcast, comedians can say whatever they want, that is the beauty of free speech however, for a public funded organisation to acknowledge and allow this to be aired calls it in to question.
Some poor assistant producer will be on the dole already and no doubt the senior bod will be getting a talking to down in the BBC bar and itll all be forgotten about tomorrow.
Look over there, its Boris.
