Sky History to take reality contest show ‘The Chop’ off-air over contestant’s tattoos

Reality contest show ‘The Chop: Britain’s Top Woodworker’ is to be taken off-air after one of the contestants ‘Darren Lumsden’, was discovered to have a facial tattoo that is believed to be nazi-related.

The tattoo in question is the number ’88’ which according to the Anti-Defamation League is a numerical code used by white supremacists for ‘Heil Hitler’ as the letter H is the eighth letter of the alphabet.

The ADL stated that the numbers 23 and 16 are also tattooed on the side of Darren’s face which they state is a numerical symbol for ‘White Power’.

Sky History has announced that they are investigating the nature and meaning behind Darren’s tattoos.

As a result of this investigation, the video featuring Darren will be removed from their social media pages and no more episodes of the show will be broadcasted until the investigation is concluded.
