KATIE PRICE last night slammed a Channel 4 boss who refused to apologise for broadcasting sick jokes about her disabled son.
Glamour girl Katie Price had demanded chief executive David Abraham be sacked over controversial funnyman Frankie Boyle’s quips about six-year-old disabled Harvey.
She said they were “as bad as racist jokes”. Jordan blasted Abraham for “adding insult to injury” when he refused to say sorry to MPs.
The 33-year-old said: “How can this man be fit to run our Paralympic broadcaster?
“Even when Parliament confront him he claims the joke has been taken out of context. That is nonsense.
“Why, when even his own chairman apologises, does he not take the opportunity too? His arrogance knows no bounds.”
Mr Abraham told the Culture Media and Sport select committee Boyle’s comments had been taken “out of context”.
But Tory MP Louise Mensch told him: “This is a disabled little boy that we’re talking about. What context would justify a joke about a little disabled boy f***ing his mother?”
Channel chairman Lord Burns did apologise. Harvey was singled out by 38-year-old Boyle on his Tramadol Nights show.
Telly watchdog Ofcom ruled against the comic after more than 500 people complained.
