Fin Taylor blasted for disgusting bomb Glastonbury joke

Comedian Fin Taylor is facing a Twitter backlash after he made a "disgusting" joke about bombing Glastonbury Festival during an appearance on Have I Got News For You. Taylor made the joke, which inferred people who attend the music event are supporters of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, while appearing on the BBC's long-running panel show on Friday (20 November).
