Mel B has been called a ‘racist’ by viewers online after her edgy comment live on the show.
Twitter users were outraged tonight over the comments with some users even labelling Mel B ‘RACIST’ after her comments.
Simon accidentally called Lauren, ‘Fleur’ after her performance of ‘Stay another day’, with the judges teasing the head-judge immediately after his mistake.
Mel B wasn’t amused by Cowell’s mistake and made a blunt comment about the two singers’ appearance, saying: “Fleur is black, Lauren is white”.
One user said on the social media site, “Mel B was a bit of a racist “Fleur’s black”. Simon only forgot her name, It has nothing to do with the colour of her skin #XFactor (sic)”
Simon shortly announced after being teased and Mel’s comment: “It’s live TV,
“These things happen.”
X Factor Results returns tomorrow (7th December).
