1900 complaints made over Alesha Dixon’s BLM necklace

Ofcom has received more than 1,900 complaints over an episode of Britain’s Got Talent in which Alesha Dixon wore a Black Lives Matter necklace.

The broadcasting regulator said the vast majority of the complaints it had received about the episode related to her choice of jewellery.

The number of complaints has risen from 1,675 on Monday to a total of 1,901.

A Spokesperson for the media regulator said:

“We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, but are yet to decide whether or not to investigate.”

Dixon wore the necklace after a performance by dance group Diversity earlier in the series, which saw more than 24,500 complaints to Ofcom, the second largest in UK history.

ITV defended the performance, adding that it was “authentic” and “heartfelt”.

Critics complained that ITV’s prime-time Saturday night entertainment show was an inappropriate platform for a political statement.

Ofcom replied by saying that the dance highlighted the importance of freedom of expression in artistic routines, adding that it would not investigate the complaints as it did not consider the performance to be racist.

It is thought that Alesha Dixon wore the necklace to show solidarity with Diversity and the wider Black Lives Matter movement.
