He continues, “You don't see white couples on ads anymore, do you? Most of the TV presenters aren't white.

“The golden girls, do you know the movie The golden girls with all the old birds? Blacks do that. & # 39;

He continues, “There are many white people who stand up for you and stand up for Black Lives Matter. Young white girls walking around with flags. Defuse the police, support the blacks.

"Well I say most young girls, Gemma's sister doesn't hold a banner as she was forcibly ambushed by three black men. Maybe diversity can invade something. & # 39;

He also suggested that the BAME community's actions could be linked to an increase in Covid-19 cases in certain parts of England.

He says, “We're going back down the line now because people don't care.

& # 39; The BAME community, what the hell that means. The Asian community, which has large families, takes no notice and stays together.

“You have a 300 bubble in a house. That is why this happens in these areas. These areas are mostly BAME areas.

“So instead of running around, kneel down and protest. Save your family Save your neighbor. & # 39;

Viewers were quick to use social media to condemn his views.

Lorraine King wrote: "Archaic, slurred, uncomfortable" comedian "complains about black people who want equality, says there are too many black people in ads and on TV, and grumbles about black people who commit crimes.

"Jim Davidson is irrelevant and is clearly looking for attention."

In response to her post, Penelope added, “I think the word you are looking for (that is missing) is racist.

Jim wants to live in the 70s where he can tell his racist jokes to thunderous applause.

"He has always been mean, as have those who support him, follow him, and agree with him."

Jan Owen added: & # 39; Comedian Jim Davidson's attack in a video I just saw on FB is an utter shame.

“The man is, was and always will be obviously racist. Shame on him and shame on FB for allowing it on their social media platform! & # 39;

Earlier this year it was announced that Davidson was about to be grilled by police over allegations of telling a black train attendant in a row about the star's 60-plus-year rail pass, "You are not welcome in this country," a witness.

The 66-year-old comedian admitted he was involved in a row at Euston train station in October but insisted the Virgin worker was white and that his comments were "sarcastic".

Author Paul Blanchard saw it unfold and complained about the star's behavior. He told the police the man was black.

He told The Sun in January, “I was asked to make further statements and the police officer handling the case said they would invite Jim to speak this week.

"It's been three months, but I'm glad you're doing something."

Mr Davidson previously admitted telling the train attendant to leave but claimed he was a South African white man and acted threateningly.

Davidson added, “I wasn't racist and the man was white. I spoke to the police and told them what happened.

"I said," Welcome to our country, "sarcastically because I couldn't help it."

But Mr Blanchard insisted that the man was black, adding, "Jim repeatedly used the same type of dismissive and abusive language."
