Fans say the ‘tired’ Scouse stealing joke is from the ‘1980s,’ and John Cleese has been lambasted for it.
John Cleese, who starred in Fawlty Towers and Monty Python, is facing anger on Twitter after several fans accused him of making an awful and out-of-date joke about Scousers.
John Cleese of the BBC has been chastised for allegedly making a joke about Scousers on Twitter.
The Monty Python star received a scolding from fans after tweeting about Ford’s £230 million investment at its Halewood plant in Merseyside, which will assist to save 500 jobs.
He tweeted, “Delighted to learn Ford is generating 500 new jobs on Merseyside.”
“Let’s hope nobody steals the plant half-inch,” he continued, referencing slang for thievery.
