Terry Gilliam responded to the diversity debate by saying hes a black lesbian and these 15 responses say it all

Terry Gilliams not happy after the BBCs comedy chief Shane Allen said if he was going to assemble a team now, its not going to be six Oxbridge white blokes. Its going to be a diverse range of people who reflect the modern world.

In other words, not six Oxbridge white blokes like Monty Python.

This was Gilliams response on the issue of diversity, as told to the NME.

“It made me cry: the idea that … no longer six white Oxbridge men can make a comedy show. Now we need one of this, one of that, everybody represented… this is bullshit.

“I no longer want to be a white male, I dont want to be blamed for everything wrong in the world: I tell the world now Im a black lesbian… My name is Loretta and Im a BLT, a black lesbian in transition.”

Did he have a point? Didnt he have a point? These 15 people thought not.
