Lineker .. and the Bald Men ((:>)

I don't have a lot of time for the overpaid poseur that is G L, although he is pretty good at his job. However, this story is just an example of what a fractious, over sensitive and thin skinned nation we are becoming, or have already become. 
Be VERY careful what you say (and think ?) folks, someone is listening and is ready to take offence

  • They wanna keep their hair on the snowflakes 

  • Rhoys Wiggins had tweeted thoughts and hairs.
  • It seems these jokes are wearing a little thin.
  • I'm bald as fuck and I found it funny.

    Would never have guessed that as you come across as very normal on here. Surprising. 
  • The BBC are no longer covering Wigan.

    the town has been renamed .. Syrupan
  • Can't help thinking that the whole shebang has been created by Lineker/BBC haters, rather than a fellow slap head...   
  • I'm sure it'll all comb over in a couple of days.

  • Imagine if you are a ginger baldy!
    How shit must that be?
  • I’m sure the controversy will blow over and recede shortly.

    Surely that’s a blessing in disguise 🤷🏻‍♂️
  • Meanwhile on Channel 4


  • The sad thing is that he is just reading off of an autocue therefore it wasn't him that has even written the comment, PC gone mad.

    Really? I’m surprised you never mentioned it mate 😉
  • This is disgraceful. In this day and age an overpaid jug eared luvvie slagging off slapheads is just not on...  No wonder overly precious snowflakes in the twattersphere are getting their ecologically sound macrobiotic knickers in a twist!

    Doubt it's that scripted. You can always see the (even more) smug look on Lineker's face when he delivers one of his little jokes.

    it's like those who have been complaining about the joke voted best joke at the Edinburgh fringe - 'I keep walking round randomly shouting out 'cauliflower' and 'broccoli' - I think I have florets'. I mean get a grip ffs …..

    If Lineker lost his hair would he be Gary Baldy?
    That comment takes the biscuit.

    This is the type of coiffeurist abuse that is all too common these days, so sack him. In fact sack everyone, they are bound to offend someone sooner or later.
  • Lineker is so in love with himself he'd pay millions to ensure he always has a bit of hair.  
  • Gary Lineker was the first footballer I pretended to be in the playground as a nipper. A genuine English hero of two consecutive World Cups. He's a vain, arrogant prick these days though, and that goatee beard that started of as a bit of designer stubble seems to be rapidly morphing into a full-on Gary Glitter impersonation.

    Nevertheless, jokes about baldness are not something to complain about. I'm glad that jokes about colour, ethnicity and disability are now considered to be largely unacceptable. Jokes about bald people are not the same and this nonsense needs to be nipped in the bud - I'm starting to feel like all jokes will have been banned in 20 years, just to stop people from being offended. 
  • The BBC so biased on this subject. " out of 3 presenters being bald. Where is the diversity? Unrepresentive of society!!
  • Danny Murphy was the target, that makes it alright in my book.  
  • There’ll always be weirdos complaining about every little thing. Why did this make the news? Because it’ll get clicks and “PC gone mad” comments.
