Not seen confirmation yet but just heard that Chester Sea Cadets auditioned for the show.

they did a rifle drill display and got stopped just 5 minutes in by Simon Cowell who called them all "gay" and suggested they should go and kill people instead of audition, then slagged off the RN.

Producers were telling the judges to stop via ear pieces and reminding them that they were dealing with children, but even Ant and Dec were joining in.

Simon Cowell who bleets on about his support for Help for Heros and his support of the Armed Services.....



Can anyone confirm?

Odd bit of spin, Katie who was there claims they made it past the producers and got onto the stage for the judges but got laughed at as soon as they got on stage then the gay remark was made - and implied the RN was all gay too.

Will assume Katie (last name available on req) is not lying as she is upset for the Cadets who trained hard.

Am more inclined to believe that as it was reduced tot he cutting room floor - the much softer story was given to the press?

Without evidence though I'm reserving judgement. It's too easy to jump on the band wagon. I'm sure if it really did happen there would be something mentioned somewhere in the media. It's the type of story the media like usually

Reply HI JUST TO LET YOU KNOW WE JUST GOT BK FROM AUDITIONS.
THE EXPERIENCE OF BEING THERE WAS GOOD BUT A HELL OF ALOT OF WAITING.

AS SOON AS WE WALKED ON STAGE WE WERE LAUGHED AT BECAUSE OF THE UNIFORM WE THINK,,, BY THE AUDIENCE AND JUDGES.
CAUSE WE WERE ALL IN NAVAL UNIFORM SIMON COWELL SAID WE WERE ALL GAY AND IMPLIEING THE NAVY IS FOR A BUNCH OF GAYS. ALSO PIERS SAID WE SHOULD BE KILLING PPL WITH THE RIFLES NOT DOIN WHAT WE WERE.
SO BASICALLY THEY HAVE SLAGGED OF THE ROYAL NAVY AND LAUGHED AT THE CDTS AND THEY DINT EVEN DO 5 SECONDS OF THE ROUTINE AND ALL JUDGES BUZZED THEM OFF....THE POOR CDTS DINT EVEN GET A CHANCE.THE PRODUCERS WERE TELLIN SIMON AND THE OTHERS TO STOP SAYIN WHAT THEY WERE AND THEY WOULDN'T. THE PPRODUCERS WHEN WE CAME OFF COULDN'T BELIEVE WHAT THEY SAID AND THEY GOT AWAY WITH IT. TELL YOU NOW THEY WONT. ALL PARENTS ARE FUMING AND WANT TO WRITE TO THE PAPERS AND TELL THEM THT SIMON COWELL WHO HAS DONE SONGS TO HELP THE HERO'S IS SLAGGING OF THE ROYAL NAVY HE IS SO GOING DOWN.
ANT N DEC WERE TWO IDIOTS WHO WERE JUST AS BAD AS THE JUDGES.
SO WE DIDNT GET THROUGH

VERY UNPROFESSIONAL IF U ASK ME.

I don't trust alot of groups on Facebook to be honest. The amount that go on saying boycott starbucks because they won't give royal marines free coffee and local councils ban rememberance parades etc. Facts aren't usually correct.

I still won't believe it personally as that is just someone saying doesn't mean it's true.

I could write the same

i know what your saying about the possability it could be bollocks but i know Katie - she is one of the Staff at Chester Unit and also - others who were in the audience have since joined to offer condolences and support and the vibe towards Cowell is very negative.

its the comment about telling children they are all gay and should be killing people that gets my blood up

If it's true then as I said it's disgusting. I'm just surprised nothing apart from someone on facebook has said something. Especially as they are through to the live show as it says in the groups news.

Maybe the media should be informed if it's the truth then why not?

Got to be honest I don't believe it either. I'm no fan of the crap Simon Cowell presents as entertainment, but he's probably not stupid. You don't get that rich by being stupid. I doubt he would insult the cadets like that. While he is often insulting to contestants on these shows, he does it because he knows that mindless idiots enjoy watching freaks being ridiculed. He would instantly become less popular if he started on chidren. People stop watching, he stops making money. Can't see it myself.

Ahh, Piers, that bodyguard of the UK military....
Under the heading of "new definitions", on "I'm sorry a haven't a clue", the word "countryside" was once defined by one of the panel as "The killing of Piers Morgan".

'Bout right I reckon.

None of my regular sources of gay news have reported what our community would regard as an antigay slur. On that basis this appears to be an urban myth. Should the story be confirmed as bona fide by Chester SCC Unit then I should like to know.

Try to encourage Katie to join RR to give her side of the story, surprised she hasn't already, as she is obviously on Facebook
