BBC slow with Iggy Pop apology

The BBC is getting complaints for not apologizing quickly enough for a racist remark made by Iggy Pop. Pop used the term ??Paki shops?? during a live BBC2 interview. Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom, received complaints that the BBC ??failed in its responsibility to ensure the offence caused was justified by the context??. In BBC?s defence, a spokesman said, ??Iggy Pop is one of the wildest men in rock music and, as such, he has a built-in content advisory warning.??
