Comedian David Baddiel is a Jewish Chelsea fan and has argued that Tottenham supporters should not describe themselves as 'Yids'.
Writing in the Guardian David Baddiel spoke out against David Cameron's comments:
"Yid is a race-hate word... The only possible reason why a culture that has tried to dismiss other race-hate words to the margins of language would consider it acceptable is if the racism of which it is a part is somehow less offensive, somehow less significant, than other racisms.
"Which must be, I guess, what a lot of people consciously or unconsciously think - if it had been the N-word or the P-word, it wouldn't have got past David Cameron's lips."
