Those of you who are from the UK may have seen the new racist Stoptober campaign, featuring white comedian Simon Brodkin (AKA Lee Nelson) as Dr Bob in brown face.
In a series of ads by NHS Smokefree, Brodkin plays an incompetent Doctor of South Asian descent, in a racist caracature with hairy arms and an exaggerated accent.
Brodkin is already notorious for his racist characters in “Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show”.
Please let Stoptober know this type of racism will not be tolerated by the public on twitter and facebook.
If you are from the UK, please submit a complaint with the Advertising Standards Agency.
This is a campaign funded by public money, it is totally unacceptable.
