Jordan Banjo forced to move home after vile trolling

OHMYGOSSIP — Jordan Banjo was forced to move home after vile trolling.
The 31-year-old Diversity star reflected on the backlash to the dance troupe’s Black Lives Matter inspired performance on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ in 2020.
He told OK magazine: “When you’re in the moment, negative voices always feel the loudest. We only did a dance on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ but people were acting like we did something awful. At the time it felt like the worst thing in the world, but ultimately you realise nobody really cares that much. Everyone is cracking on with their lives and you have to do the same.
“We won a BAFTA for the performance, we sparked really positive conversations among friends and family, and more importantly, I’ve seen stuff being done in schools, conversations happening in communities. Even talking about it now shows it had a lasting impact.
“For some people it was just a misunderstanding but others love to jump on a bandwagon and be outraged. I saw comments saying, ‘I haven’t watched the performance but this is disgusting.’ Everybody is entitled to their opinion but I think there’s some people who thrive on negativity.”
And, dad-of-three Jordan even had to move house because people tried to break in.
He said: “I had people try to break into my house or vandalise my car. But the experience has given me a thicker skin. Now, I just take steps to minimise negativity. I don’t need to sit here and read negativity – it doesn’t leave me feeling good. Diversity has never tried to be controversial. We like to entertain people, leave people feeling happy. If you’re fortunate to have a big platform, I think it’s important to always try and use that for positivity.”
