Share this article


There are calls for the lyrics of Fairytale of New York to be censored this Christmas.

It's over the use of a gay slur in the popular Pogues song.

It comes after a number of radio stations have banned 'Baby it's Cold Outside' over what some call 'predatory undertones.'

Saoirse Ronan sang Fairytale of New York with Jimmy Fallon this week, but they left the controversial verse out.
