A Labour Councillor has apologised after an actor wore a costume with a large fake penis attached, to a children’s reading event in Ilford. Jas Athwal, said that he was appalled by the incident at Goodmayes Library on Saturday.
Outraged parents took to social media to complain after pictures emerged of the actor wearing a rainbow coloured monkey costume, complete with a very large fake penis. The actor’s buttocks were also exposed in the costume which left little to the imagination.
All future performances at the library, which had been organised by a partner charity called Vision, have been cancelled.
MP for Ilford North Wes Streeting has since said he is “deeply concerned” by the events that took place on Saturday.
He told The Mail Online that he has written a letter to Vision (who hired the actors) questioning how the company thought the costume was appropriate for “family audiences around our libraries and public realm, let alone a festival aimed at promoting literacy amongst children.”
We are living in a lunatic asylum. I must say that to myself at least 20 times a day now. Lunatics on the left (they’re NOT socialists by the way) are determined to sexualise the country’s children. There’s no other way to say it.
The actor should be arrested on suspicion of child abuse. If turning up to a kids event with a giant dildo dangling and your bare arse exposed to the world isn’t child abuse, I don’t know what is.
What the fuck is going on? Have I inadvertently stumbled into some parallel universe? It feels like it.
