Viewers Demand Gogglebox Sisters 'Taken Off Air' For 'Horrific' #MeToo Joke

Viewers Demand Gogglebox Sisters 'Taken Off Air' For 'Horrific' #MeToo Joke

Fans have turned on a pair of Gogglebox stars after they poked fun at the #MeToo movement on last night's show.

Viewers were left shocked when Ellie Warner made light of the topic, laughing that she played a tag-style game with her friends where the aim was to grab each other's 'boob or bum'.

Her sister Izzi was then brought into it when she made a Boris Johnson gaff. Neither of which went down well with people watching at home.

During the episode, Ellie said: "I played Tag not so long ago... but we called it #MeToo and basically we had to chase each other and either grab somebody's boob or bum.

"And they were then it."

Izzi then hit back at the comment, saying: "I don't think you are supposed to make a game out of the #MeToo."

But shortly after the comments were aired, fans waded in on social media, claiming they were disgusted by the remarks and that both sisters should be taken off air.

One stunned viewer tweeted: "So one's said Boris Johnson should stick his n** in someone's mouth to shut her up and the other has made a game and joke about the movement, how are they still on the show?"

A second then wrote: "Those sisters are disgusting. One....makes a grab a boob game out of the Me Too Movement. They should be pulled off-air. I don't offend easily to those two are vile."

A third said: "To make a game of 'tag' into what she described... I'm in shock."

Not everyone was so opposed to the joke though. One Twitter user came to the defence of the two sisters, writing: "My god lighten up a bit, it was a joke. And a funny one at that."

The MeToo Movement began in October 2017 and was turned into a hashtag on social media to help victims of sexual assault speak out about their trauma.

It led to a multitude of high profile cases being brought to light, including allegations made against movie producer Harvey Weinstein which was backed by a number of A-list stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Ashley Judd.
