Jim Davidson banned from performing at Kent theatre over his anti-gay views
Jim Davidson has been told he cannot perform at a theatre in Kent because of his homophobic and racist views.
The BBC reports Canterbury’s Marlowe Theatre director Mark Everett said: “He can be very racist, he can be homophobic, he can be very unpleasant about people with disabilities.”
The 59-year-old former Big Break host criticised the decision on his blog.
He said: “I am not alone at being banned from there. It would seem that one man decides what the town can watch. It is a bit odd seeing that it is a council venue! Still it’s his decision”.
He also commented on the Jimmy Savile scandal by suggesting gay entertainers were more likely to be sexual abusers.
