BGT’s Ashley Banjo ‘confuses racists’ with picture of ‘one white one brown’ kids

Ashley Banjo trolled racist abusers in the best way, as he joked that his children would "confuse" them.

The Diversity dancer posed alongside his children who sat in a pushchair as they enjoyed quality family time on Monday afternoon.

Ashley's upload came after Diversity's performance on Britain's Got Talent, inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and which featured imagery of George Floyd's death, sparked over 22,000 complaints.

Since the performance, head dancer Ashley, 31, has been hit with criticism from social media trolls, but that didn't stop him from "lightening the mood".

Taking to his official Instagram page, the stand-in Britain's Got Talent judge posed alongside his children Rose and Micah.

Ashley captioned his post: "There's been a lot of negativity recently so I thought I'd lighten the mood with a picture of me completing some dad duties…

"One child is brown and one is white… That should confuse the racists #diversity #family."

Ashley's wife, Francesca Abbott commented: "Funny yet factually accurate."

While one fan commented: "You are an outstanding example to young and old alike and I so hope you are all proud of your performance which was truly outstanding. As a nearly 60-year-old white, middle-class woman I take my hat off to you, to all of Diversity (you really do have the right name) and to your exceptional talent."

While a second added: "I thought your BGT performance was amazing! Anyone who has complained clearly doesn't like the truth about the kind of world we live in."

Ashley's dance mate Jordan commented: "Confuse the racists, lol."

Diversity's performance is now the second-most complained about TV moment in television history.

Ashley's post comes after he took to Instagram to share a video, speaking about the barrage of abuse he had been receiving.

He said: "Racial abuse to threats, to just some really nasty stuff".

He went on: "I am not going to give it any more time than it deserves, all of the nastiness and the racism shows exactly why this performance was needed and exactly why this conversation has now arisen from it.

"Racism is very real, especially after this performance."
