Kate Middleton and the Queen were the subjects of some very offensive jokes that were cut from a BBC Special after comedian Frankie Boyle went too far. The attempt at comedy using Kate and the Queen didn’t entice as much as a chuckle from the crowd, according to E News on March 7, 2013.
Boyle, who has inappropriately ridiculed the Royal Family in the past, didn’t surprise the audience with his rude choice of an attempt at comedy during his 10-minute stand-up routine for Russell Brand’s “Give it Up for Comic Relief.” This three and a half hour show conjured up many belly laughs from the various comics, but the crowd wasn’t receptive to hearing awful things about Kate Middleton and the Queen.
What Boyle said about the Queen was in very bad taste and offered nothing in the lines of comedy. He picked on Queen Elizabeth’s age, Kate Middleton’s pregnancy and he even took a swat at Oscar Pistorius, the Olympian with two amputated legs and who’s in the news for killing his girlfriend.
He said that Kate “told me she was on the pill” when referring to the news of her pregnancy. What he said about the Queen was the worst, He said that he “wished she had died the night before the Royal Jubilee.” This way they’d have to “hollow out her body and get the guy who plays Gollum to wear it.” This sounds more like a derogatory rant because it certainly didn't fall under the definition of a joke.
When speaking about Pistorius, he said, "Pistorius to me sounds like a spell Harry Potter would say to make your legs drop off." It was apparent that his set was very dissatisfying to an audience who wanted comedy, not comments made in very bad taste.
As far as Kate and the Queen, the royal family didn’t deserve this type of targeted put-downs. There was nothing funny about the Queen dying or Kate pregnancy. It is very inappropriate for a man who has two good legs to make fun of another who is missing both of his, even if the man just murdered his girlfriend.
Frankie dragged the Pope into this sick attempt at comedy saying, "The Pope must have done something that even the Catholic church found unacceptable. My theory is that he f--ked an adult woman."
This so-called comedian took three very good and decent people, Kate Middleton, Queen Elizabeth and the Pope and targeted them with some very disturbing put-downs. It is for this reason that Boyle’s set has now been cut from the BBC special.
