Brits... how did you guys not figure out this crap earlier?

I mean... just look at him.

I'm American and knew nothing of him or his work before this whole scandal broke... but I'd keep my kid cousins away from him if he had just walked into the room.

Begoggle: The episode, which was filmed in 2001

Spare me your outrage.
This is like the efforts to remove every instance of the WTC after 9/11 from every form of media.


But we have to pretend it ever existed. That's what you do when something bad happens, right?

Seriously, though- it was just a dumb mistake, and now it will live forever on the internet so that people can figure out what was so wrong about it.

NobleHam: Who cares? Does the character on the show molest little children? No? Do kids in the UK have any idea who Jimmy Savile is or what he did? I hope not.

Then it's just a comical mistake.


This, basically. The episode is about 12 years old, and was just run in rotation. Deserving of a dopeslap? Maybe. Deserving of all the pearl-clutching going on in that article? No.
