More Boos for America’s Got Talent’s Mel B!
Mel B, aka Scary Spice and formerly of the Spice Girls, seems to be getting a few frights of her own these days, as she continues to judge reality talent show America’s Got Talent.
On her very first day, she was booed – and now it seems it’s happened again. The Brit buzzed a stand-up comic who said in his set that black cab drivers were “more fun”. (We wondered whether the comedian meant drivers of London’s iconic black taxis but we guess probably not.)
Mel is reported to have said afterward: “I found it offensive. It was not funny, and there was no need to do a stereotyped black joke.”
However, it seems that Mel may have been alone in having been offended by the gag, since Heidi Klum and Howard Stern, her fellow judges, did not agree with her point of view, and neither did the audience.
One blogger has suggested: “Maybe her finger is just too far from the American pulse?”
- Season eight of AGT will premiere on Tuesday, June 4, 2013 on NBC.
