44 viewers complain about bad language in BBC coverage of Kanye West’s Glastonbury performance

The expletive-heavy set was aired on BBC Two from 10.15pm, attracting an average of 1.1 million viewers

Over 40 people complained about the BBC’s coverage of Kanye West‘s headline performance at Glastonbury Festival on Saturday night (June 27).

The rapper topped the Pyramid Stage, performing a nearly two hour set at Worthy Farm, also teaming up with Bon Iver‘s Justin Vernon and playing tracks from throughout his career, as well as a short cover of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’.

Prior to the performance, the BBC told viewers to “expect bad language” during West’s set. They also aired a warning prior to the broadcast.

BBC decided not to censor any expletives used during the performance, but hilariously replaced swear words in their subtitles.

According to The Guardian, Ofcom will assess the complaints before deciding whether to investigate a possible breach of broadcasting code.

West’s headline performance was aired on BBC Two from 10.15pm, attracting an average of 1.1 million viewers.
