Tonight on Sky Living, Katie Price aka Jordan, is once again on our screens in a reality tv show. This time is different though. This time, she’s raising awareness about disabled children and speaking out about the highly offensive, and much publicised, attack against 9 year old Harvey made by comedian Frankie Boyle back in December 2010.
The remarks made by Boyle were on his “comedy” show, Tramadol Nights which was aired on Channel 4.
I won’t go in to detail of the remarks are they are fairly derogatory and offensive and uncalled for.
Katie Price causes a lot of controversy and leads a lot of her life in the public. However, is there such a need to attack a 9 year old child who we all know is very poorly?
I’m not a huge fan of KP. I feel sorry for her and the fact she feels she needs to lead her life so publicly. However, no matter how much you dislike someone, you DO NOT make offensive, racial and crude jokes about their children, disabled or not! It’s uncalled for and not necessary! Poor defenceless children should not be at the butt of such sick jokes!
The thing with Katie Price, is that you can dislike her all you like…but one thing you cannot accuse her of is not being a kind and compassionate mother. I have watched her reality shows and you can see how much she dotes on Harvey, whom she had with ex-footballer Dwight Yorke, as well as her other children Junior and Princess who she had with ex-husband Peter Andre.
Harvey’s conditions mean he needs a lot of care. He is also autistic, and being the mother of an autistic child I know how hard it is…let alone dealing with all the added issues on top.
I for one, think that Frankie Boyle and Channel 4 should apologise, as they have been asked to do, but to date have refused. Channel 4 should never have let the remarks get aired in the first place. Is there any room in our society now for just degrading insults? How would Mr Boyle feel if one of his children were to be bullied and be the butt of a joke by a middle aged man?
A lot of people are saying that tonights programme is all about Katie getting her face in the limelight. I can’t answer that until I’ve seen it, but by going on her article written in today’s Daily Mail, it’s all about Harvey.
Personally, I’m looking forward to watching the programme.
