Harvey Wants To Rape Katie Price Because He’s Black And She’s White: Frankie Boyle Joke Explained

by | 12th, December 2010

FRANKIE Boyle versus Katie Price is a nasty row that shows what prejudices Channel 4 likes. Boyle’s gag is that Katie Price’s handicapped son Harvey Price is trying to rape her.

Says Price:

“They are saying it is ok to ridicule people – even children – for disability in a way they would not dare over race or sexual orientation.”

Katie misses the raw comedy. Channel 4 is a broad brush of liberal intolerances. The joke is not that Harvey is disabled and so a hulking incestuous weirdo, rather is it that he is mixed race – his father is black – and as such he would love to rape a white woman, even if it is his mum. Nice joke, Frankie.

We’ve not had cutting-edge funnies like that for years. (Unless it’s post-modern and ironic and so terribly right-on?)
