Watched it last night (as I do every night) and a contestant said her mum was Scottish and dad Jewish

Ed said “Gee be hard to get pocket money out of a Scottish mum and Jewish dad”

Complaints have poured into Channel 9 calling it racist

Eddie's too much of a yob to be on TV.

He's guaranteed to say something moronic on TV or radio every year!

At least one parent was aboriginal! Who know what Ed would have said then!

Not footy related but the man is associated to us and there’s enough jibes on Collingwood and it supporters

Considering Ed's parents were born in Scotland, and neither Jews or Scots are a "race", I think it's the usual over reaction.

And I agree with the overaction and I personally am not offended but there
are a plethora of "precious " people who delight in "overreacting " and venting
their displeasure

If thats all people have to be offended about I suggest they get a life. I don't think the Scots and the Jews, including one of his board members, will worry about it. They probably laughed.

Sad state what is inoffensive to some is offensive to others

I too had a quiet chuckle

No complaints have not poured in. People responding about what a joke this is have poured in. Check the Herald Sun website.

Ed’s an easy target. But he’s no Don Burke.

The gestapo and the Stasi did very little actual detective work. They relied on denunciations by those who are always out there, itching to show how programmed they are for compliance.

The cleverness of our liberal thought police is that they do not need to rely on imprisonment. They work by creating a howling twitter mob, and threatening reputation and livelihood. It’s a very creepy feature of our times.

Is this the same Ed who got in strife for his “King Kong “ comments that also were innocently made but still created a stir?
You would hope someone would learn from their mistakes. Especially someone who opts to earn a living in broadcasting.
There are no hanging offences committed here, but please have the sense to leave any racial connotations our of your repertoire.
Love you Ed, but seriously, try to learn from past experience.

I'm not a huge fan of Eddie anymore,and I don't condone everything he says,but what he said here was completely harmless.It seems that the thought police are trying to make every single person on this planet have their humour surgically removed so that they don't run risk of offending someone.

Meanwhile the President of the USA is retweeting racist videos of a hate group in the U.K.Now that is something that should really get people upset,not this.
