Little Britain was removed from Netflix and the BBC after a woke backlash, prompting David Walliams’ response.

In a throwback interview, DAVID WALLIAMS responded to Netflix and the BBC removing Little Britain due to objections to the sketch show’s characters.

David Walliams joins Jonathan Ross and a star-studded lineup on The Jonathan Ross Show tonight, which includes Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins from the Great British Bake Off, documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux, and Hollywood superstar Kevin Hart.

Westlife, the world’s most successful boy band, also stops by for a chat, during which they reveal that their children have begun to perform together.

The boyband will also perform a song from their impressive back catalog, which includes 14 UK number-one singles, solidifying their status as one of the most successful boy bands in history.

Mr. Walliams is best known for his work on the BBC sketch show Little Britain and Come Fly With Me with fellow comedian Matt Lucas.

Since then, he has worked as a judge on ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent, as well as swimming the length of the Thames for Sport Relief and writing a series of children’s books.

Last year, Little Britain was chastised for some of the characters featured in various sketches.

Little Britain and Come Fly With Me were both removed from Netflix, while Little Britain was removed from the BBC and Britbox.

“Times have changed since Little Britain first aired, so it is now available on BBC iPlayer,” a BBC spokesperson said at the time.

Making transvestite jokes and the use of blackface were among the criticisms.

They used prosthetics and make-up to portray characters from various ethnic backgrounds.

Mr. Lucas and Mr. Walliams have since apologized.

Mr. Walliams said he would take a different approach now in an interview with The Sun last year.

“You’d definitely do it differently because it’s a different time,” he explained.

“Tolerances change in all sorts of ways.”

“You’ve got to understand comedy for me is celebrating things,” he said, denying that he was mocking minorities in the show.

He also issued a statement following the Black Lives Matter movement last year, saying, “Matt and I have both spoken publicly in recent years of our regret that we played characters of other races.”

“Once again, we want to emphasize that it was incorrect, and we apologize deeply.”

Mr. Lucas had previously expressed his dissatisfaction with the program.

In an interview with The Big Issue, he said.

“News from the Brinkwire.”
