A previously unseen video has surfaced in which Beatles legend John Lennon appears to make fun of disabled people. The video was shown on a current BBC Channel 4 program titled It Was Alright in the 60s and shows the apparent insult happening on stage at a Beatles concert. In the video Lennon seems to mimic the mannerisms of a disabled person while encouraging fans to clap and stomp their feet during a concert. The clip has created outrage amongst disability awareness groups. One such organization, Mencap, released on official statement noting, “Times may have changed but I always find it hard to believe how such famous people can have these horrible views about real people. I have seen attitudes towards people like me change a great deal since I was a child. It wasn’t uncommon for people with a learning disability to be publicly laughed at and made fun of at the time.” Copyright(c) 2015 RTTNews.com. All Rights ReservedLess «
