Comedian Russell Howard is being widely discussed today after he mocked a booklet that is currently being handed out by the government to workplaces with advice on how to speak to ethnic minorities.
During his Sky One show Howard exclaimed that the booklet contains “helpful advice that no one would ever f**king need”. He then goes on to explain some of the advice in further detail labelling it as “insane”.
It seems as though Russell has missed the mark here, although his intentions were clearly not malicious in terms of him wanting to offend anyone, for him to think that no race issues exist within workplaces is definitely an oversight and shows a level of ignorance that needs to be addressed.
No comment has been made by the comedian as of yet. Check back for updates on GRM Daily.
