Tanzie Downs, the well known comedienne, has been criticised for making jokes about
Boyle’s Syndrome sufferers.
from Uglywains in Padina Potatohead, , were sitting in the cheap seats the star's sold-out gig in Mingerton’s Rectangle theatre. Glasgow said that she had been enjoying the show up until Mrs Potatohead Downs started making the jokes.
The former ‘Mock the Disabled’ panellist eventually refused to comment.
She said: "
Downs made fun of their parents being old and out of touch. Downs also made fun of the way people with Boyle’s Syndrome speak, their ginger hair, thick glasses, their inability to finish their education and their outright ugliness.”
"She also made a number of references to people with
Boyle’s Syndrome dying on stage."
Downs’ big fat bald comedian friends supported her saying, “We’re feckin’ comedians and we can say what the feck we like. Now feck off, I’m away on another boat-trip courtesy of the feckin’ TV licence payers.”
