Jimmy Carr made a controversial joke at the Q Awards – and it went down like a lead balloon.
Carr made the comment about Reeva Steenkamp while presenting the Best Act In The World Today award to Kasabian..
Steenkamp was shot dead by athlete Oscar Pistorius, who was sentenced to five years on Tuesday.
In his speech Carr began talking about long queues when needing the toilet, adding: ‘So frustrating. All I’m saying is I can see it from Oscar Pistorius’ point of view.’
The audience are said to have gasped as Jimmy went on: ‘That’s not the controversial bit. Here it comes…I blame her.
‘If she hadn’t been in that disabled toilet none of this would have happened.’
He shouted at the now-silent crowd: ‘It’s the f*****g Q Awards, come on.’
The comedian told The Mirror’s 3am after the show: ‘I think it went all right. I’m going to go home and write some new jokes.’
