Rowan Atkinson among those leaping to Boris Johnson's defence over burka comments https://t.co/8eEmp4KXt9— Sky News (@SkyNews) August 10, 2018
- Recently, prize twat (and until recently, former UK Foreign Secretary) Boris Johnson compared women in burqas to "bank robbers" and questioned why they would "go around looking like letter boxes".
- Atkinson wrote to the Times, saying that "As a lifelong beneficiary of the freedom to make jokes about religion, I do think that Boris Johnson's joke about wearers of the burka resembling letterboxes is a pretty good one."
He then went on to comment that it was pointless to apologise for religion jokes as they all caused offence. He said that the only thing to apologise for was a bad joke.
Et tu, Mr. Bean?
