Iconic section removed: - People are too stupid

Old movie title from the old series has recently been removed from the various streaming services because of the racist scenes and episodes, that is over the limit.

It applies, among other things the Oscar-winner 'Gone with the wind' and the british sketchshow 'Little Britain', and now it is the fans of 'Stuff on the fawlty towers', which temporarily go without a title, if the streamer series in England.

Here UKTV namely removed the episode 'The Germans', while they examine the section more closely. It is due to racist scenes and condescending remarks - among other things from the character major Gowen, played by Ballard Berkeley.

the Episode, which first aired in 1975, was among other things known for the phrase 'Don't mention the war!' (Don't mention the war. The second world war, ed.), as the hotelier Basil Fawlty shouting in front of some German tourists.

Now mix the lead role and the man behind the series, John Cleese, in the debate. It happens in an interview with The Age, where he makes it clear that he does not agree with the decision to remove the section.

- One of the things I have learned in the past 180 years, is that people have a very different sense of humor. There are some who understand that if you put meaningless words into the mouth of one, you want to make fun of, then it shows you are not their views, but you make fun of them, he says.

John Cleese describes major Gowen as a decades-old fossil.

- We did not support his views, we made fun of them. If you can not see it - if people are too stupid to see it - what can you say?

'Hullo on the fawlty towers' has given a large number of people lots of pleasure. Why will you put a stop to it? continues John Cleese.

He stresses that he supports the Black Lives Matter movement and their fight for justice and to stop the discrimination.
