Must not compare black skin color to chocolate



ALESHA Dixon has angered Britain's Got Talent fans after making an inappropriate comment on tonight's live show.

When talking to band Vox Fortura after their performance, she said: “Four sexy chocolate men, with amazing voices, polished to perfection, that was sensational well done.”

The throwaway reference sparked outrage on Twitter, with viewers calling her comments racially insensitive.

One asked: “Can she say that?! #bgt #cringe”

Another viewer said: “Get Alesha off Britain's Got Talent. She's so disrespectful and generally terrible! #bgt."

One more added: “Did Alesha just say chocolate men?! Imagine one of the other judges said that....”

Another tweet read: “Sexy chocolate men!! If a white person said that they would be called racist. Shut your mouth Dixon you clown”

Tweets continued to pour in, with one viewer complaining: "“#BGT So @AleshaOfficial is disrespectful to one act and then says 'chocolate men' Not great tonight. A public apology is needed! #BGT2016."

Disrespectful?!? In what universe???

It's bleedin' obvious that Ms. Dixon was attempting to be as enthusiastically complimentary as she could possibly manage to put into words.

There is something very, VERY wrong with those who complained.

New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin championed the effort to restore New Orleans as a 'chocolate city' after Hurricane Katrina. Was the precious Ms. Dixon offended then?

Surely it is a reference to that classic British band "Hot Chocolate" known for such enduring hits as 'You Sexy Thing!"? and "Everyone's a Winner"??

This is a police group - all serving officers I believe ! The wonderful Alesha Dixon could similarly be described as milk chocolate
