British comedian Richard Blackwood appeared on Britain’s Got Talent last night as Donkey from Shrek, however the performance was dubbed as embarrassing and an ultimate low in the comedians career.
Viewers took to Twitter to express their opinions, and the insults poured in so much that Richard Blackwood became a trending topic.

Richard Blackwood made a right ass out of himself on TV last night. He is desperate to be a UK Eddie Murphy but is just a bit of a donkey!

We all understand the need for publicity, and the former MTV presenter has been neglected by the press lately -but is this the way to make a comeback? Let’s pray to sweet Jesus that this actually works out for Richard and he isn’t running around on stage as an ass (literally) for nothing.
