Everybody was kung fu fighting, the police came fast as lightning. Not to break up a yakuza vs. mafia brawl but to arrest a singer of the Carl Douglas classic. Simon Ledge was singing the song at the Driftwood bar in Sandown, UK when a passing man “of Chinese origin” took offense claiming he was “subjected to racial abuse”. Ledge was arrested on suspicion of causing harassment, alarm or distress. Were this April 1st, this might be funny. Carl Douglas himself has weighed in on the incident:
“I couldn’t believe it. This is not a racist song. It’s a happy, kicking, disco song.”
Now, racism is not a joke like DVD piracy, nor is it a victimless crime like punching someone in the dark, but this is absurd!
