Kanye cleared over Brits n-words

Kanye West's controversial Brits performance will not be investigated after more than 150 people complained about his repeated use of the n-word.

The US rapper, supported by a huge backing cast including someone operating a flame-thrower, performed his new track All Day at the event.

ITV muted large sections of the song, performed just after the 9pm watershed, at the time but there were still 151 complaints to communications watchdog Ofcom.

An Ofcom spokesman said: " We received a number of complaints that Kanye West's language, shortly after the watershed, was offensive but we will not be taking the matter forward for investigation.

"Having carefully assessed these complaints, we noted that before the programme ITV took steps to ensure that offensive language was not used, and during the programme to mute the majority of it."
