Outrage as E4 American sitcom makes joke referencing Shankill bomb

Friday November 24 2017

US sitcom called Black-ish made the reference in an episode where two parents are discussing their son's political identity.
In the clip parents Dre and Bow are discussing that they "have a problem" because they believe their son has become a member of the Republican Party in America.
They discuss the definition of it before one asks “A member of the Irish Republican Army?” to which the other responds “What the hell!”
The other adds: “Okay, Okay, If you got to take down a couple of fish and chips shops to be free of British Rule, Dre you gotta do what you gotta do."
