‘Monty Python Was Too Male, Pale, Stale,’ Says Diversity-Obsessed BBC

John Cleese has been defending Monty Python‘s legacy.

BBC's Head of Comedy puts Monty Python's lack of originality down to a surfeit of education and racist bias

Unfair ! We were remarkably diverse FOR OUR TIME

We had three grammar-school boys, one a poof, and Gilliam, though not actually black, was a Yank. And NO slave-owners

He was responding to the ludicrous suggestion by the BBC’s Head of Comedy Shane Allen that Monty Python were somehow not “original” because their members were too white, male, and middle class.[...] 
And as John Cleese points out in another of his tweets, the BBC was similarly resistant to Monty Python.
Some Comedy History

When Python started, the Head of Light Entertainment loathed it, and at a Heads of Department meeting, six of them disliked it. Only Desmond Wilcox, out of eight, approved

So Allen is just the latest in a long line who don't really know what they're doing
The BBC is and always has been the Enemy of Promise: a monstrous state bureaucracy which stifles creativity, crushes individuality, and enforces the politically correct values of the liberal elite.
