David Walliams recorded making derogatory remarks about BGT contestants

Don’t know why “Nevertheless, I am sorry” is so funny to me.

Clearly a massive cunt.

This is allegedly the tip of the iceberg. Any advance on ‘nasty bastard’?

great investigative work there, uncovering the hidden secret that these shows are actually quite cruel and exploitative

Annoys the fuck out of me that he keeps getting compared to Roald Dahl - and that his publishers positioned him as that from day one. He doesn’t even have 1% of Dahl’s creativity.

Lawyers for Walliams and Thames TV, the production company behind Britain’s Got Talent, argued the comments were part of a private conversation never intended for broadcast.

Oh well thats alright then

I think the vast majority of Walliam’s books, if not all of them, are ghostwritten. His name is just the branding.

In publishing it’s very well known that he is a horrible dickhead. He does not treat people well - especially women and junior staff. Earlier this year a Guardian expose was almost published, all about his awful behaviour, but it never came out for one reason or another. Could be that this new stuff is laying the groundwork for that, but I’m not sure. Either way he’s going to get pulled up eventually.

I think the inference is that they weren’t able to publish the bad stuff so they’re hoping to get him on the small stuff rather than waiting for other stuff to surface. And honestly, this isnt nice what he’s said but it does seem the public are often more outraged by the small stuff than sexual assualt or serious crimes. See milliband eating a sandwich the wrong way, corbyn unbuttoning his top button or whatever. Someone on twitter was comparing it to al capone and tax evasion.

But that seems optimistic tbh, look at russell brand and and stephen k amos - everyone knows, nothing happens then in 30 years there’ll be an expose and everyone around them will feign shock and be appalled

tbf you cant blame him for his books, its not like he writes them

Erm…well this has blown my naive brain. ‘Person too young to sign legal documents you are required to sign this document that gives me permission to commit crimes’.

Maybe this is who Mark Lamarr was talking about
