An unrepentant Jim Davidson backed up his rant on YouTube by saying that diversity should make a dance routine about black men assaulting people.
In a follow-up YouTube video titled “Now The News Is Me!” Posted today, Davidson said, “I cannot be bullied, shut up or kicked off television.”
Yesterday the comedian, 66, asked why Diversity had performed a routine on the death of George Floyd rather than one on “assaulting people”.
He also said that “the Asian community that has big families is not paying attention” to the coronavirus restrictions and is living in “a bubble of 300 in a ****** house”.
After an overnight social media storm, Davidson responded to criticism today.
In a second video, he insisted that he was only talking about “facts” and that it was up to others to decide whether they thought the facts were good or bad.
“Let’s talk about the facts,” he said. “Yes, there are a lot of mixed-race couples – when I say mixed-race, I mean a black person and a white person – on the ads.
“Now is that a good thing or a bad thing, you decide.
He said he received calls from “really sane people” supporting his video, adding that a “very, very famous TV presenter” told him he was afraid of losing his job in the name of diversity.
“This is the way the world works and if you make a comment about it you are racist. I’m not saying that I like it or that I don’t like it, ”he said.
“What I’m saying now on this fabulous YouTube is that if I have offended someone, I’m absolutely sorry.
The comments were not all against Davidson. Under his latest video, many expressed support for his rants

Diversity hit the Britain’s Got Talent stage earlier this month for a raw performance inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.
Led by dancer Ashley Banjo, the former champions opened the performance by reciting a viral poem The Great Realization by singer Tomfoolery, about the BLM movement and police brutality.
During their performance, the group also recounted the death of George Floyd who died after Constable Derek Chauvin put his knee on his neck in Minneapolis on May 25 for nearly nine minutes.
In his swearing rant, Davidson adds, “You just want to be famous, don’t you. You want to be all over the world. That’s why you do it, you don’t give a fuck about George [Floyd]».
He goes on to say, “You don’t see white couples on commercials anymore, do you? Most TV presenters are not white.
“The Golden Girls, do you know that movie The Golden Girls with all those old birds?” It’s made by black people.
In yesterday’s video, Davidson said his friend Gemma’s sister was “violently assaulted by three black men.” He suggested to Diversity to “do an aggression thing”.

He went on to say that the actions of the BAME community could be linked to an increase in Covid-19 cases in parts of England.
He said, “We are now taking the serpent back down because people don’t mind.”
“The BAME community, what does it mean. The Asian community that has big families is not careful and sticks together.
“They have a 300 bubble in a ****** house. This is why it happens in these areas. These areas are mainly BAME areas.
‘So fucking ****** sort out, rather than kneel down and protest. Save your family. Save your neighbor.
Viewers quickly took to social media to condemn his views.

“Jim Davidson is irrelevant and clearly seeks attention.
In response to her post, Penelope added, “I think the word you are looking for (missing) is racist.
“Jim wants to live in the 70s where he could tell his racist jokes with thunderous applause.
“He’s always been vile, just like those who support him, follow him and agree with him. “
Jan Owen added: “The attack on comedian Jim Davidson in a video I just watched on FB is a total disgrace.

But not all of the comments were against Davidson. Under his latest video, many expressed support for his rants.
Emlyn Webster wrote: “I was going to tweet you this morning, but then I thought I’m sure I’m going to have some hassle, but either way you said it right. “

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Davidson was to be grilled by police for telling a black train attendant “you are not welcome in this country” in a row on the rail pass from the star over 60, according to a witness.
The comedian admitted he was involved in an argument at Euston station in October, but insisted the Virgin worker was white and his comments were “sarcastic.”
Author Paul Blanchard saw it unfold and complained about the star’s behavior – telling police the man was black.
He told The Sun in January: “I was asked to provide further statements and the officer in charge of the case said he got Jim to speak this week.
“It’s been three months but I’m glad they are doing something.”
Mr Davidson previously admitted to telling the “f *** off” train attendant, but said he was a white South African man and had acted threateningly.
Davidson added, “I was not a racist and the man was white. I spoke to the police and told them what had happened.
“I said, ‘Welcome to our country,’ in a sarcastic way, because I couldn’t help myself.
But Mr Blanchard insisted the man was black and added: “Jim repeatedly used the same kind of dismissive and abusive language. “
