Within 30mins he was cussing off James lisp and Pippa's "fat" friends. Again.
More tedious than the Tedious Link.
Lisping is debatable, but race and body size are both factors that can lead to people being discriminated against. The difference here is that we all know Pippa's friends aren't actually fat - but then joking about fat people isn't great generally. Let's face it though, Chris has always traded in that genre of jokes, even when he was fat himself. That doesn't mean it's okay, but it's what most of us have come to expect.
