Ant Attacked For Using Racial Slur On 'I'm A Celeb' But What He Actually Said Isn't Offensive At All

Seems like some people need their ears testing tbh.
Ant & Dec are known for their family-led humour, but every now and again they get a little bit more adult with their content.
Whilst this wasn't one of those instances, viewers thought Ant had actually stepped over the mark and used some racist language as they hit out at the presenter on Twitter.
His co-host Dec had set up a joke about a group of "underprivileged Australians who suffer terrible working conditions", jokingly referring to the crew who create the show and Ant's response instantly caused chaos.
Ant replied saying "Poor souls, they get paid in avos", meaning Avocados, but many people thought he'd said 'abos', a derogatory term for an Australian Aborigine.
Of course Ant would never say that and a rep for 'I'm A Celeb' has confirmed that he was not using the slang term on the show.
But that didn't stop viewers questioning the Geordie lad on Twitter...

Tbh, we heard 'avos' the first time, so we're not sure what people were thinking!
