Yes, I'm afraid so.
The one Christmas record that doesn't make me cringe is now banned from the radio.
The BEEB have decided that the 'offensive lyrics' are obviously too much for many to bear, and so a moderated version will be played instead.

EDIT:

Panic over. Apparently this only applies to Radio 1.

So I really dinnae give a fcuk.

Aren't they just bleeping the word "faggot", like they do with about a hundred other words in other songs on the radio?

It seems pretty trivial in the grand scheme of things.

No idea mate.

I don't tend to play Radio One much.
At all.

Just thought it was a bit mental to change the words of a classic song 'in case it causes offence'.
I expect 'faggot' and 'slut' and 'fairy' are all binned.

Probably for the best.

Kanye West uses it for one and I've heard it on rap songs. Disnae personally bother me what they sing about but once you start banning songs for having words that might offend somebody then it's got to be the same for all.

Yeah but the point is censorship. Those songs get censored. Fairytale of New York isn't being banned, is it? 🤷‍♂️ I thought they were just cutting the word out.

There are far more offensive songs out there that don't use frowned upon words though that get airtime.
I seen the Cardi B post on Facebook too.
She's some harder Nicki Minaj type I think. Pretty sure they're groupies that got signed in exchange for the "favours" they provide.

I agree though, its nonsense.
Should educate folk on why we don't use certain words instead of tryna erase them from history.

Do they broadcast those on radio 1 with the words included?

I must admit I'm no' a great one for attending rap concerts so the only place I really could've heard it is the wireless, and I doubt very much if I'd been listening to radio one so I couldnae say if it's been played on there or no'

Was there a reason why you were wondering if they were "gonnae dae the same" without knowing whether they already did the same?
