Some people will whinge about anything.
Meanwhile the musician has come under fire from some sections of the black community for fuelling "negative stereotypes of young inner city people, especially black people", by using slang such as "innit" and "wassappenin" during the interview, and for joking about running for prime minister.
The BBC has not escaped criticism either. Around 50 people have called the corporation to complain about Wednesday's programme, all of whom questioned Dizzee Rascal's suitability as a guest on the special which the BBC said was watched by 1.4 million people.
Facebook groups have also been set up urging users to add their voices to the debate. One message doing the rounds on Facebook said: "Why is it that Britain's minorities are always depicted in this negative light, making our positive achievements seem somewhat belittled. The BBC creates a false impression of what we are. They promote one side of the spectrum, which is usually the negative side.
"There were many intelligent black people from the UK [who] would have represented us correctly, but due to the negative images that the BBC so regularly promotes it was fitting for them to pick a RAPPER, to speak on one of the most momentous occasions for black people in the 21st century."
Ignoring the bit about the BBC's secret agenda to intentionally misrepresent black people, these are exactly the reasons I initially objected to his appearance on Newsnight. He's a clown and as I said before, if he represents black youth, which I don't think he does on a whole, then black youth are fucked.
