In the very next scene, I held back screams as we were introduced to a (thankfully) fictional charity called the Guide Dwarves Association. I watched as a real person who really has dwarfism was led around on a lead as a blind person carried a charity box, complete with encouraging comments like ‘good dwarf’ in the tone all dog owners use to their pets. So, a dog was being treated like a person, while a disabled person was treated like a dog. Again, all that will do to stereotypes is reinforce them. To me, it’s about as funny as spoiled milk."
Channel 4, sadly, seemingly fails horrendously again.
