JIMMY Carr is facing a fresh response after allegedly mocking that child sexual abuse victims should laugh at their trauma in a discovered podcast interview.
Controversial comedian Dame Esther Rentzen, 81, founder of Childline, has been criticized for her comments.
During the podcast chat, Jimmy reportedly said: “I’ve made a lot of jokes about pedophilia and I’m sure there’s someone on every show who has been touched inappropriately. I’m sure.
“You just look at the statistics and say, ‘OK, that’s how it should be.’
“And how do you do that? How do you win? Well, the best reward is to live a good life and move on and laugh at it.”
But Dame Easter hit back at her comments. Sunday people: “When you are a victim of childhood abuse, especially sexual abuse but any kind of abuse or neglect, it can lead to very deep scars.
“Personally, I haven’t met a survivor who laughs at it or finds it ridiculous, even when they go ahead and have tremendous success, like most people.”
This came as Jimmy faced calls for a police investigation after mocking the Holocaust genocide.
During his Dark Materials Netflix special, Jimmy joked that the massacre of Romans and Saints during World War II was a positive thing.
He refused to back down when he returned to live shows after being surrounded.
“The joke that ended my career is already there,” he told the audience as he took to the stage at Whitley Bay Playhouse.
He said: “We are talking to our friends at the last minute salon.
“What I am saying on stage this evening is hardly acceptable now. You will forget it in ten years.
“You will be able to tell your grandchildren about watching this show tonight.
“You would say I saw a man and he stood on a stage and he highlighted serious issues.
“We used to call them jokes and people used to laugh.”
Celebrity Big Brother and My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding star Paddy Doherty said of the Holocaust joke: “The police should investigate.
“It was no joke. He’s talking about the positives of mass murder – will he be allowed to say what he says about the black people killed by the Ku Klux Klan?”
“There’s a level you don’t go to. More than a million of my people have been killed.
Jimmy’s close friend and fellow comedian David Budel said in a Twitter thread that the gag was “cruel and inhuman and racist and racist.”
He added: “As a footnote, I would like to add that Jimmy is a close friend of mine and has a wonderful stand-up in general. How do I feel or think about this particular joke? It doesn’t matter. “
