– ‘I wouldn’t for all the reasons people are offended by it, and about 12 more besides,’ Coren Mitchell replied. ‘And yet Jimmy is a kind person, and I said so knowing what misunderstandings and bile would come, because it’s true and because I’m not a fairweather friend.’

The petition, by the group The Traveller Movement, labeled Carr’s statements as “nothing short of a celebration of genocide.” It demands that Carr apologize and for Netflix to remove the episode from the program.
