The controversial comedian, 67, clashed with Ashley after the Diversity star confronted him over his “racist” views.
Subsequently, viewers labelled Davidson a ‘coward’.
Why was Jim Davidson involved?
The documentary saw Ashley explore the fall-out from Diversity’s hard-hitting Black Lives Matter-inspired routine last year on Britain’s Got Talent.
The dance referenced the terrible murder of George Floyd in the US.
Subsequently, it received over 24,000 complaints from viewers.
One of the most vocal complainers was comedian Jim Davidson.
On his YouTube channel, Davidson said at the time: “If you can [bleep] you can dance really.
He went on to say: “I saw it [the Diversity routine] on the day a black man was charged with murdering someone in Birmingham.”
Ashley, after seeing the video, said: “What’s that got to do with racial equality? It actually baffles me.”
Why did Davidson walk out on Ashley Banjo?
Later in the documentary, Ashley invited Davidson in for a chat to discuss the video.
“As far as I was concerned, that video you made about Diversity was… racist. Racist in every single way,” Ashley said.
“Really? If I was talking about you, why would that be racist?” Davidson responded.
“It’d be personal rather than racist.”
The comedian went on to say he supported Black Lives Matter as a statement, not the movement.
He then asked: “Am I here for you to question whether I’m a racist, or to talk about your dance with Diversity?”
Furthermore, when Ashley produced the video for them to go through, Jim decided enough was enough.
“Oh Jesus, this is [bleeping] crazy… I admire you for doing it, but you’ve got me wrong.”
