Critics of Gavin and Stacey demand that the popular comedy be removed from TV streaming services in the midst of a fierce race.
The show, written by James Corden and Ruth Jones, features both a character called “Chinese Alan” and a man described as “Seth, the black guy”.
Following the Black Lives Matter protests, The Mighty Boosh and Little Britain and Come Fly With Me have been removed from BBC iPlayer, Netflix and BritBox.
The two comedies by David Walliams and Matt Lucas in particular faced huge criticism this week for their use of black-faced characters.
Meanwhile, Ant and Dec apologized for “impersonating people of color” in Saturday Night Takeaway.
Some viewers are now asking that Gavin and Stacey also be abandoned.
Writing on Twitter, one person said, “With all of this cancellation culture, I hope @bbc now removes #gavinandstacey from @bbciplayer, @netflix @BritBox_UK.
“The show is misogynist, racist, homophobic and guilty of rudeness. ”
Another simply wrote: ” If we delete Little Britain, can we also get rid of Gavin and Stacey? ”
Direct messaging from James Corden, we even asked, “Wondering why none of your characters in #gavinandstacey were played by BAME actors?
“I only remember one black character – a trio with Pete and Dawn in an ep.
“His race has been the subject of several gags. Not cool James! ”
The scene the tweeter refers to is the first episode of the second series, which aired on BBC2 in 2008.
The characters Dawn and Pete, played by Julia Davis and Adrian Scarborough, are shown to be awkward while seated at a table in a restaurant.
The pair unexpectedly fell on Stacey (Joanna Page), Gavin (Mat Horne) and his parents, Pam and Mick, played by Alison Steadman and Larry Lamb.
After a break, a black man comes out of the toilet and sits at the table. Pete said to the surprised group, “It’s Seth. ”
It turns out later that they had hoped to spice up their relationship by making a trio with Seth.
During the episode, however, Dawn and Pam refer to him as “the black guy” while frantically turning their faces with their fingers.
Meanwhile, another character under fire is ‘Chinese Alan’, who makes several appearances in the three series ‘by Gavin and Stacey.
In the first series, “Chinese Alan” arrives at Gavin before his deer.
As Gavin and his friends, including Smithy – played by James Corden – sing “Chinese, Chinese”, he walks through the door and says, “Has anyone ordered a Chinese ?! ”
“Chinese Alan” is played by white actor Dominic Gaskell, who is not Chinese. The character is believed to have earned his nickname after working as a delivery driver for a Chinese takeout.
However, not everyone is calling for the removal of the BBC’s comedy.
One fan tweeted: “Gavin and stacey isn’t really offensive. ”
Another added: ” Dear Softies Chef, Gavin and Stacey, Okay?? They say Chinese Alan .. ”
A third wrote: “Inbetweeners was lifted off? it will be then gavin and stacey or something. this will provoke serious protests. ”

This is not the first time that Gavin and Stacey have faced criticism.
Last December, the BBC was forced to defend the long-awaited Christmas special from the show after failing to remove the word “fagot” from the song, Fairytale Of New York.
About 900 people complained to the Ofcom television watchdog.
