19 Super Awkward Celebrity Moments That Happened in 2019 (So Far)
When Joanna Lumley joked about the KKK at the BAFTAs
Considering how badly she bombed as a host at the ceremony, it’s safe to say that Joanna’s scriptwriter failed her. One of her lowest and most cringe-worthy moments, however, was when she boldly joked about the Ku Klux Klan in her opening monologue. After mentioning Spike Lee‘s BlacKkKlansman, she mentioned that she was “surprised it did so well at the Klan film festival” and the silence afterwards was so awkward. When she noticed the lack of response, she casually tried to move on, saying “yes, alright” and we couldn’t help but cringe. In all honestly, though, this incident alone is reason enough to get her scriptwriter fired.
