Twitter feeds accuse SCD as racist?

Post  saxonsiren on Mon Oct 10, 2016 11:10 am

Well I did say to my other half I can imagine the ott remarks after hearing Tameka had gone after Melvin as well... It's not racism in my opinion at all. I was gutted Tameka left I voted last week for her and this week I'd had late tea and watched on delay tea and realised when I logged online at 9:26pm I couldn't vote! My three votes would have been Greg, Will and Tameka.... grrr does anyone else realise free votes close at 9:10pm on a Saturday? Not long is it?

It's barmy some people have to find a reason to be negative about a show either racism, ageisim,gender or fatisim? A word!?
Why are there remarks like this made? A lot of people disagreed with the negative remarks.
I watched Tameka on Sunday Brunch and I didn't get a hint she'd gone....

Wondering if the remarks will carry on?

Stuff and nonsense!

Racist? Melvin is the WORST dancer in this year's cohort. He got the lowest audience vote with that Tango.

Tameka and Laura should NOT be in the bottom two last Saturday, but Tameka and Gorka stumbled mid dance during the dance off. They were voted off because of that, and rightfully so, though it pains me to see them go...

Racist? Seriously?

We live in troubling times, it does feel like racism's back on the rise again, and too many people are quick to dismiss it. However, I don't believe it's seeped into the Strictly voting so far at all. Melvin's dances were poorly executed and choreographed. Tameka wasn't able to stand out like she usually does with the song / theming / outfit she was given so it wasn't a huge surprise to see her in the B2. If I expected anyone there instead of her, it was Naga - who is herself another BAME contestant.

And worryingly Naga looks like she will be one of the next to exit but purely because of her dance performances and not because the colour of her skin but that won't stop people with their agendas.

Indeed CC. I mean on the face of it I can see how it'd look bad, particularly in the current climate, but I really don't believe race is a relavent factor here.

Ore could very well be a strong contender this year as well but that won't silence some with bizarre views.

I wonder what reason these claiming racism is that Ore was not in the dance-off as well? It really is all nonsense and just the media trying to undermine the show. They had also made a big thing out of last week's called off dance-off abd claimed Silver tongued Italian Stallion Ton.ioli was so angry he quit the show but changed his mind. WHAT UITTER bs.
