David Baddiel ‘hopes Jimmy Carr is still a friend’ despite condemning his holocaust joke | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

He wrote: “You can obviously tell a Holocaust joke that is cruel and inhumane and mean-spirited and racist. 

“Or you can tell one that targets the oppressors, or draws attention to the fundamental evil of it, or shines a light on the humanity of the victims.”

David added to his followers: “I said this every night during my Trolls: Not The Dolls tour as part of a bit arguing that it’s not the subject matter of a joke that counts.

“Instead, it’s the specifics of the individual joke. Clearly, Jimmy Carr’s was the former.”

He also spoke about “the extent to which it plainly demonstrates her consistent practice of secretly leaking information to the press”.

The lawyer told Mrs Justice Steyn that the loss of “crucial” documents by Mrs Vardy was deliberate, adding: “The only plausible explanation is manual deletion by the claimant herself.”

Rebekah walked out of the court during Mr Sherborne’s comments.

Coleen and her husband, ex-footballer Wayne Rooney, did not attend the court on the last day of proceedings.

Her barrister began by explaining to the judge that they had a “long-standing travel arrangement” with their children booked for Thursday. The trial had over-run by a day and was supposed to have concluded a day earlier.

He passed on their “individual apologies”, adding “that they intend no disrespect to the court”. The judge, Mrs Justice Steyn, said: “I don’t take offence”.

The WAGs now face a wait to find out who has won the Wagatha Christie libel battle after the high-profile trial finished last week.

She penned in view of her 756,000 Instagram followers: “Seb whisked me (bit of a mission but worth it!) at the crack of dawn to @rhswisley before all the crowds., to say we’ll be done for the book launch, and it was just perfect for an hour.

“I haven’t left the house in 10 days as I have been too weak, and whilst I’m now going to snooze for most of the day (in the sun like a cat!) – I love this picture that reminds me of vibrant green life all around, despite the sadness of knowing the state of my body inside.

“Not only contributing to the @bowelbabefund but also making it number one in the best sellers Amazon list.

“It’s always been my pipe dream to write a bestseller. My first book just missed out, so maybe just maybe I’ll never know about this one, but I’m sure I’ll be celebrating somewhere!!”

The journalist went on to call for America to make changes to its gun control laws, following the “horrific” incident that also took the lives of two adults.

 

Piers, 57, took to Twitter last night to update his 7.9 million followers on the terrible events that transpired at Uvalde yesterday.

Using statistics that have since been updated, he wrote: “14 schoolchildren and a teacher at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas have been shot dead by an 18-year-old gunman.

“Absolutely horrendous. I don’t know what else to say about these endless US gun massacres – it’s for Americans to resolve but where is the will?

He continued: “Nothing was done after Sandy Hook to stop another school massacre like that happening again.

“It’s now happened again. Schoolchildren being slaughtered in their classrooms should not be a political issue.

“Please, America, stop the partisan bullsh*t and do something to stop it.”

Tennis star Andy Murray, recalled the deadly 1996 shooting of 16 children and one teacher at Dunblane Primary School, Scotland, responded to Piers’ tweet.

“F***ing madness,” the star commented.

Piers also shared a quote from the USA’s National Youth Poet Laureate Amanda Gorman, which read: “It takes a monster to kill children. But to watch monsters kill children again and again and do nothing isn’t just insanity—it’s inhumanity.”

In another update an hour after the initial news had been reported, Piers tweeted: “18 children now dead in school massacre – Texas State Senator Roland Gutierrez on CNN. Horrific.”

Surviving victims of the shooting, which occurred at Robb Elementary School, have been taken to at least two hospitals in Uvalde to be treated.

The attack has been described as the worst US shooting in a decade and the suspect is now reportedly dead.

Authorities have identified the shooter as 18-year-old Salvador Ramos, who attended the nearby Uvalde High School.

Ramos, who was clad in body armour and carrying a rifle, carried out a massacre that began with shooting his own grandmother before he was shot dead by officers.

Speaking on national television, Joe Biden said: “As a nation, we have to ask, ‘When in God’s name are we going to stand up to the gun lobby?'”

He suggested reinstating a U.S. ban on assault-style weapons and other “common sense gun laws”.
