Katie Price slammed Frankie Boyle as a “disgusting human being” as she urged fans to boycott one of his broadcasts.
The star took to Twitter to ask her 2million followers to refrain from tuning in to the comedian’s Live At The Apollo broadcast following comments he made about her disabled son Harvey.
In 2010, the mum-of-five accused the comic of being a “bully” after he made comments about her son Harvey, who suffers from septo-optic dysplasia and autism among other conditions, on his show Tramadol Nights.
Insisting that she hasn’t forgot the joke he made at Harvey’s expense, Katie sent out the message: “Don’t watch @ FrankieBoyle_ live at apollo he is a disgusting human being after what he said about my son Harvry # idontforget” [sic]
She was inundated with support.
One fan tweeted: “I don’t understand why comedians need to stoop so low as to make fun of people with disabilities”
Another said: “he isn’t funny at all! He is vile about everything and still thinks swearing and insulting people makes them laugh.. nope!”

The joke Frankie made came after Katie’s split from first husband Peter Andre and her marriage to cagefighter Alex Reid, and left her so upset that she complained to watchdog Ofcom about the Channel 4 programme.
A spokesman for Ofcom said at the time: “We can confirm that we have received a complaint from Katie Price.
“Having considered this and other viewers’ concerns, we have now launched an investigation into the show.”
Ofcom upheld a total of 500 complaints over the joke and went on to censor the comic and Channel 4.
However, Katie said it was a “further insult” that the broadcaster was not forced to apologise.
