Little Britain Removed From Streaming Services Due to Blackface

Read Time:47 Second

Major streaming services in the UK have removed sketch series “Little Britain” from their platforms because it contains blackface.

 

Netflix, BBC iPlayer and BritBox no longer air the series, which aired on television from 2003 to 2007. British media report this.

The duo Matt Lucas and David Walliams have long criticized various characters who were perceived as discriminatory and racist.

For example, Walliams played a transvestite and Walliams painted black for the role of a black woman.

Images that no longer fit with this time the BBC believes. “Times have changed since” Little Britain “was first shown, which is why the series is no longer available via BBC iPlayer.”

BritBox shares the same explanation for the choice to remove the series. Successor “Come Fly With Me” has also been removed from the streaming services.

At Netflix, both series are no longer between the offer, according to British media, but the streaming service was not available for comment.
