“Come on: Clive Lewis was a little bit of a twonk right here, however that is clearly not “mocking suicide” – and I say that as a campaigner on this problem. Let’s all cease being so foolish and offended about every little thing,” he mentioned. 

The Unbiased has contacted Mr Lewis for a remark.  

It’s not the primary time Mr Lewis has brought on controversy. In 2017 he apologised after video footage emerged displaying him at a Momentum occasion, saying: “Get in your knees b****”. 

The group responds noisily to Mr Lewis’s remark – which was directed at a person and apparently meant as a joke – with one particular person current heard saying: “That is meant to be a protected house, thanks.”
