Oh dear. Last weekend Chris Lilley reminded the world that he existed and ... it didn’t end well. In fact, it was all kinds of awful. With the comedian having recently garnered media attention in the wake of his most recent series, Jonah From Tonga, being axed from Maori Television, the publicity wing of Lilley’s flailing one-man empire decided on a somewhat unusual strategy to restore public favour.
He decided to -- and as they say, you couldn’t write this -- upload a video on his Instagram account called "Squashed N**ga". It contained vision of himself in blackface (as one of his characters, the rapper S.mouse) as well as images of a person lying on the road after being run over.
