Katie Price slams comedian Frankie Boyle for sick jokes about Paralympic athletes
London, September 2 (ANI): British model Katie Price has lashed out at comedian Frankie Boyle for making fun of the disabled athletes taking part in the Paralympics.
Boyle, 40, had caused outrage last week after a series of jibes on Twitter, -including one about a British high jump Paralympic star being blown up by the -Taliban.
The 34-year-old model, who has a 10-year-old disabled son Harvey with ex-football star Dwight Yorke, asked if the comic would be so insensitive about his own loved ones.
"Boyle's wife could have a car accident and be paralysed from the neck down - then we'll see if he jokes about people with disabilities," the Mirror quoted her as saying.
"It would certainly change his life forever and open his eyes before he makes jokes. It's disgusting that he gets away with jokes about children like Harvey," she said.
Price has been furious with Boyle ever since he made obscene jokes about her son, who suffers septo-optic dysplasia and severe autism, on TV two years ago.
Price is a campaigner for disabled children and raises funds for Harvey's school Dorton House in Sevenoaks, Kent.
In his latest Twitter rant, Boyle had branded Saudi Arabian Paralympians "mainly thieves" and said a high jumper's best performance was "Taliban assisted."
It was particularly embarrassing for Channel 4 - that aired his show 'The Boyle Variety Performance' on Monday - as it is the Paralympics broadcaster. (ANI)
