is the inbetweeners next mystery as hugely popular sitcom takes down all episodes from its youtube

The Inbetweeners is feared to have been axed from YouTube as its channel has had all episodes taken down amid claims its ‘offensive’ content sparked compaints.

The comedy starring Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison has vanished from the website.

It tracks the sixth-form experiences of four awkward teenagers and is known for its explicit jokes, particularly on the part of serial sexual bragger Jay, played by Buckley.

Despite being hugely successful, the show had every piece of media on its YouTube channel removed.

Social media users are speculating that it was taken down for its juvenile shock humour, with episodes including a frisbee hitting a disabled woman in the head and Bird’s character Will abusing schoolmate Neil’s dad for being a homosexual, which he is not.

It comes after Little Britain vanished from BBC iPlayer due to David Walliams playing a morbidly obese black woman in a sketch and painting his skin for the role. Walliams’ and Matt Lucas’ Come Fly With Me was taken down for the same reason.

The Inbetweeners channel had more than 222,000 subscribers before its content was removed.  

One fan tweeted: ‘The Inbetweeners is one of the funniest shows ever made. The humour is funny because it’s offensive. This generation would rather be angry than laugh & it shows.’

But others are tweeting that the show’s content was actually taken down due to copyright reasons, as it migrated to Britbox in April.

The Channel 4 comedy follows the lives of four teenagers and their clumsy interactions with women, alcohol and education.

Its humour is usually found in the fallout that occurs when one of its central characters says or does something that is offensive and the protagonists are often the victims of their own stupidity.

Three-metre saltwater crocodile breaks into a suburban backyard

three metre saltwater crocodile breaks into a suburban backyard

A three-metre saltwater crocodile has been caught crawling under fences and breaking into suburban backyards before devouring a stray dog.

Luke Newton was enjoying a coffee on Sunday morning in his hometown of Gunbalanya, east of Darwin in the Northern Territory, when he was called to catch the giant reptile from a private property.

Though he initially assumed it was a smaller crocodile, Mr Newtown arrived to find the beast frantically trying to escape the scene of excited children and dogs under a wire fence, the NT News reported.

It took the crocodile catcher and three eager volunteers about an hour and a half to ensnare the reptile, wind tape around its mouth and claws for protection, and drop it off at a billabong.

Mr Newton said it looked healthy and fully, suggesting it may have eaten a stray dog on its journey through the town.

‘It’s a danger to the community … you have camp dogs and kids everywhere it’s not ideal to have a three-metre croc running around,’ he told the publication.

Despite its great length, Mr Newton said the crocodile was no larger than others caught around the area.

‘This time of year we get a few wandering through. It’s not the first one and it won’t be the last,’ he said. 

He added that the most risky captures in the cramped spaces under homes and buildings.

Earlier in September, a woman in south-east Darwin watched more than 20 crocodiles gnash their teeth together as they fought over a dead cow.

Michele Bain said the cow was definitely dead by the time it was pulled into the water and appeared bloated, as though it had been drowned, with chunks of ‘black, slimy flesh, like the skin of a seal’.

As the crocodile feasted on the cow, more crocodiles slowly began to emerge.

‘There was lots of fighting and splashing – we’ve been going to that spot for years and we’ve never seen anything like it,’ she previously told Daily Mail Australia.

WHAT IS A SALTWATER CROCODILE? 

  • Saltwater crocodiles are the largest of all living reptiles, growing up to 6m in length and weigh up to 1,000kg.
  • They typically remain motionless and camouflaged for very long periods, and are often mistaken for a partially submerged log.
  • Crocodiles are able to propel themselvs through the water at surprising speed up to speeds of around 18km/h.
  • With eyes and nostrils on top of their heads, they can remain mostly hidden beneath the surface of the water. 
  • Their mouths contains 40-60 large teeth designed to rip flesh off prey as food is swallowed whole.
  • Strictly carnivorous, they eats fish, birds, and even wallabies, water buffalo, cattle, flying foxes, crabs and turtles that venture near the water’s edge.
  • Most prey are ambushed and then drowned or swallowed whole. 
  • When hunting prey, they lie in wait, partially submerged or completely underwater.
  • Crocodiles inhabit the mangrove swamps, coastal marshes, and river mouths, around the top of Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Queensland.
  • The saltwater crocodile can live to the age of 70

Hindus urge IKEA Australia to withdraw an ad campaign for ‘mocking yoga and cultural appropriation’

hindus urge ikea australia to withdraw an ad campaign for mocking yoga and cultural appropriation

Hindus expressed their outrage over an IKEA advert showing a woman in a yoga pose they allege is cultural appropriation and mocking the ancient practice.  

A representative for a global Hindu group is urging the global furniture behemoth to withdraw the recently launched Australian campaign video ‘IKEA product pose Yoga’ and apologise. 

The video features a woman dressed in white fitness clothes and doing various poses while a voiceover gives yoga instructions asking viewers to ‘follow Eve as she takes you through product pose yoga by IKEA.’

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement from Nevada on Thursday, said the video ‘trivialized the ancient and serious discipline of yoga’ 

The model then displays 15 yoga-asanas associating each with an IKEA product, like ‘barbecue tongs’; with a background voice explaining ‘to quieten the internal fire we have awakened’; ending in Namaste with folded hands. 

Another advert features the woman pose matched with a cocktail martini glass.  

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, said in a statement from Nevada on Thursday, the video ‘trivialized the ancient and serious discipline of yoga.’  

Mr Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, said comparing one of the woman’s poses to a martini glass was ‘highly inappropriate.’ 

He claimed that the use Hindu traditions for commercial purposes was an insult to devotees of the practice because it was ‘religious appropriation’ and was ‘mocking serious spiritual practices.’ 

Mr Zed wants to see the advert withdrawn and apology from IKEA’s global management based in the Netherlands.  

Hinduism is the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about 1.1 billion adherents, Mr Zed explains, adding its ‘rich philosophical thought should not be taken frivolously or ridiculed.’ 

‘In the Hindu faith, yoga is considered union with God and one of the six systems of Hindu philosophy, and mean for transforming consciousness and purification of the Self and attaining liberation,’ Mr Zed explains. 

In a statement to Daily Mail Australia, a spokesperson for IKEA said the company did not intend to offend Hindus with the advert.  

‘IKEA Australia did not intend for any offence to be caused as a result of the creative of this campaign,’ the spokesperson said.
