Nabil Abdulrashid has mocked viewers who complained about his comedy routines on Britain’s Got Talent.

The comedian’s jokes about race and religion took him to the final of the ITV talent competition, but not everyone was impressed.

Almost 1,000 people complained to Ofcom about a performance in which Abdulrashid joked about police treatment of black people, and about what “angry far-right guys” would think about someone making comedy out of being black and Muslim.

Another 2,200 complained when he laughed off the “snowflakes” who had objected to his previous routines.

The media watchdog rejected the complaints, stating: “The comedian’s satirical take on his life experiences as a black Muslim was likely to have been within audience expectations.”

After the news of Ofcom’s decision broke, Abdulrashid tweeted: “BAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA.”

He had previously joked: “I'm just happy I've kept workers at Ofcom from being made redundant. I'm a hero and should be appreciated for my contribution to the economy. @Ofcom you're welcome.”
