Ofcom have revealed they are not making a formal investigation into Diversity's Britain's Got Talent performance after over 23,000 people complained.
Nearly two weeks have now passed since the former BGT champions delivered a powerful routine themed around 2020, the coronavirus pandemic and most prominently the Black Lives Matter movement.
In the performance's most attention demanding moment, Diversity star Ashley Banjo reenacted the death of George Flloyd, with Ashley laying on the ground as a man dressed as an American policeman stood over him.
The routine was heralded by many people both on and off Britain's Got Talent but it has now become the second most complained about TV moment of the past decade, second only to Roxanne Pallett's controversial 'punch' accusations against Ryan Thomas on Celebrity Big Brother in 2018.
And now, after ITV issued a statement in support of Diversity, praising the "heartfelt and authentic" routine, Ofcom have announced they won't be taking any further action.
Their statement, released on Thursday afternoon read: "We carefully considered a large number of complaints about this artistic routine, an area where freedom of expression is particularly important.
"Diversity's performance referred to challenging and potentially controversial subjects, and in our view, its central message was a call for social cohesion and unity.
"Any depictions of violence by the performers were highly stylised and symbolic of recent global events, and there was no explicit reference to any particular political organisation - but rather a message that the lives of black people matter."
Ofcom's statement came days after Ashley revealed the horrifying extent of the racist abuse he'd received in the aftermath of the BLM performance, with one social media user telling him "go live in Africa."
He reacted to it by posting: "I didn’t want to even shed light on any of this directly. But here’s just a small selection from the past week. And please don’t worry about or feel sorry for me... Feel sorry for the people that endure this kind of abuse and have no voice or platform.
"Feel sorry for the people that have been singled out, abused and in some cases murdered because of the colour of their skin.
"The only saving grace is that this is the vast minority... But for all the people asking or wondering - yes it is very real and yes it does exist.
