Frankie Boyle is in trouble, yet again, for telling offensive jokes. This time the comedian made the mistake of mocking the Paralympic games on Twitter, a move that could cause him to be banned from Channel 4.
The Scotsman is known for pushing the boundaries with his savage one-liners and often suffers mixed responses from the public and press alike.
Restrictions from BBC2 on his humour and language meant that Frankie decided to leave popular show, Mock the Week, in 2009.
Jumping to Channel 4, the 40-year-old gained his own show, Frankie Boyle's Tramadol Nights. As part of the broadcaster's Funny Fortnight 30th birthday celebrations, this month saw the launch of his latest project The Boyle Variety Performance.
But after some comments he posted on Twitter on Wednesday night, it is now unclear whether this will spin into a regular series.
The comedian took to the Social Networking Site during the Paralympic Opening Ceremony Tweeting, "I'm going down to the blind football to shout that the referee's a deaf bastard #c4paralympics," and, "Apparently the Saudi Arabian Paralympic team is mainly thieves #c4paralympics."
The comedian didn't just make rude comments about Paralympians - he also had a crack at royalty Tweeting, "The Queen hasn't cracked a smile since Diana died #c4paralympics."
He even took to mocking his own countrymen, "Wow, Austrian Paralympians seem a lot more able-bodied than most regular Scottish people."
Following a backlash over his comments about the athletes, Frankie defended himself today saying he made similar gags during the Olympic Games and that he doesn't think the Paralympics should get any special treatment.
He Tweeted, "I'd say my Paralympic tweets are celebratory. I'll be joking about Paralympics same way I joked about the Olympics. That's my job yo."
