‘It’s not casual racism, it’s considered culturalism’: John Cleese slammed for Twitter rant against ‘half-educated tenement Scots’

john-cleeseJohn Cleese has caused outrage after launching a foul-mouthed tirade against Scottish people on Twitter.

The Monty Python star, 76, was enraged by a column Scottish journalist Fraser Nelson had written in The Telegraph newspaper and turned to social media to vent his anger.

While commenting on the column he wrote: ‘Why do we let half-educated tenement Scots run our English press?Because their craving for social status makes them obedient retainers?’

K will tell you the Scots invented everything.

    “Remember, if it’s not Scottish — it’s CRAP!”

    An Englishman- that is hell bent on committing Cultural suicide should never be allowed to even speak to a Scot. .
    You are worse than the fucking Pope.

    I do like his characterization of former PM Gordon Brown as “a one-eyed Scottish idiot.” If it wasn’t Cleese who coined it, it should have been.

    I have enjoyed Cleeses work in the past, still do but when you look at the cultural ruins of London it is due to the repeated attacks against “the then establishment ” by him and his cast mates amongst others of course. OK the establishment is smashed but tell us john ;where is the utopia ?When do your comedy team start ragging on “silly muslims”

  • Shebel

    The English still think they have Social Status . How is that Muslim treating the Tower of London ? Pip Pip— Your arrogance is exceeded by your love of Cultural Genocide.

  • Shebel

    Nowadays–You can only make fun of White People— am I right Mr Cleese ?

    Mr Cleese . Mr Cleese . Can you tell us what to do?

  • Jay Currie

    Well we did and then we left Scotland.

    • Shebel

      ?? You lost me— what am I missing

      That’s right. Only the dross remain. Anyway, Fraser Nelson is too posh to be Scottish.

  • Timmae

    The coward will not perform comedy at universities anymore. They have become what he preached for so many years. Now he is not welcome there. Kind of like shooting yourself in the foot.

  • Shebel

    Olde comedians should shut to fuck up.

  • I just assumed he was joking.
