Diversity's Ashley Banjo says Britain's Got Talent critics are 'the minority'

Diversity star Ashley Banjo has said the dance troupe have received "hundreds of thousands" of messages
of support after their performance on Britain's Got Talent last week. The Black Lives Matter-inspired routine
has attracted more than 21,000 complaints to media regulator Ofcom.

Banjo, who is also a BGT judge, said: "Trust me. I'm right in the centre of it. The negativity is the minority...

"We stand by every single decision we made with that performance."

Ofcom is now weighing up whether to launch an investigation into the performance. It included a white
performer kneeling on Banjo's neck, a reference to George Floyd's death in police custody, and dancers
dressed as riot police. It also featured themes about the coronavirus pandemic, poverty and capitalism.

Critics complained that ITV's prime-time Saturday night entertainment show was an inappropriate platform
for a political statement. The number of complaints stood at 21,673 on Monday, Ofcom said.

But Banjo explained that it was meant to be "a round-up of an extraordinary year", and to "summarise
the crazy rollercoaster of emotions" in 2020.

"It was layered," he said on Instagram. "It was something we wanted to bring to the stage to give people
hope, but also not to shy away from the difficult conversations and the difficult issues that have arisen
this year."

Banjo said the support, in the form of "hundreds of thousands of messages, comments, DMs and just
interactions in the street", had been "overwhelming".

But he said the routine had also sparked "a lot" of negativity, and he posted a series of examples of
the racist abuse he has received on social media.

He had received "everything from racial abuse to threats to some really nasty stuff", he told followers.

"A lot of the negativity and the nastiness and the racism shows exactly why this performance was
needed, and exactly why this conversation that has now arisen from it is necessary. Racism is very
real. I knew it before, and I definitely know it now."
