Katie Price – aka Jordan – has complained to Ofcom about Frankie Boyle, after the comedian made a joke about her disabled son, Harvey, who suffers from septo-optic dysplasia and autism.
Boyle said on his Tramadol Nights show: “I have a theory about the reason Jordan married a cage-fighter. She needed a man strong enough to stop Harvey from f***ing her.”
Furious Katie Price has taken her complaint about Boyle to media regulator Ofcom and has spoken out, calling Frankie Boyle a “bully”.
Fans also voiced their disgust, saying that the Glaswegian comic had gone too far.
In a statement, Price described her son Harvey, 8, “a little miracle”.
The glamour model continued: “Every day he overcomes so many difficulties with the help of family and medical experts and has so many tiny battles to win due to his medical problems.
“If Mr Boyle had a 10th of his courage and decency he would know that to suggest, let alone think funny, that Harvey may sexually attack me is vile and deeply unfair.”
A Channel 4 spokesman said: “Frankie Boyle is well known for his controversial type of humour and the programme carried appropriate warnings as to the nature of the material.”
It’s not the first time that Boyle has landed in hot water with his controversial comments. In April his jokes about Down’s Syndrome led to an on-stage argument with a member of the audience.
Ofcom is now investigating the incident but said a judgement over Boyle’s comments would not be determined until the new year.
