The BBC have edited footage from The One Show after Tottenham accused producers of singling them out over racism, but they have fallen short of apologising to the club.

The Beeb have removed from iPlayer all references to Spurs in a Holocaust segment aired on January 27 in response to a legal letter of complaint.

Sadly, because people are thick, it doesn't matter if it was removed, it wouldn't matter if it was proved false (which i think no evidence was found). It's in people's heads now. We live in strange times where truth doesn't matter. What I find odd is the irony of Spurs being accused of racism against Chelsea. A team that has - en masse - racially abused our club since forever.

The editor chief or director general of the BBC is clearly a rival supported team. My guess chelski or Wet spam

The irony is that in the very same game,the only clear evidence of any racist chanting towards a player in that game was by a Chelsea fan which was directed at Son, something that wasn't highlighted initially in this BBC report.

It was a bit of a strange decision anyway. Even if a spurs fan had been racist towards a player, it doesn't nullify anti-Jewish chants etc that have been going on for years. Still a relevant topic for discussion.
