Coronation Street has been forced to apologise after complaints over a comment made on the show earlier this week that was deemed racist by many viewers. The episode in question aired on Bank Holiday Monday (August 29) and saw the character of Eva Price, played by Catherine Tyldesley, say that she had "more roots than Kunta Kinte" whilst visiting the hair salon, referring to the enslaved character from the novel and TV mini-series Roots. The character then adds: "No idea who that is, by the way, just something my mum used to say." Watch in the clip below. Yo @ITV So what's up with the cultural insensitivity on #Coronationstreet? "I got more Roots than Kunta Kinte" That's kinda racist...— Epic Mase RCG (@RedCloudGawd) August 29, 2016 @itvcorrie why would you allow such a racist comment about Roots and Kunte Kinte? Shame on you.— Vanessa (@van_essa66) August 30, 2016 @itvcorrie WOW! "More roots than Kunte Kinte"I'm actually stunned that you think that is acceptable broadcast something so racist.— SHILOH (@shilohmusicldn) August 30, 2016 While many on Twitter pointed out what they saw as the offensiveness of the remarks, nearly 300 viewers also complained to Ofcom, who have said in response: "Ofcom has received 278 complaints about Coronation Street, which aired on Monday. We will assess these complaints before we decide whether to investigate or not." A spokeswoman for Coronation Street has since responded, saying: "We apologise if this dialogue has caused offence."

[Intro]
Everybody get up
Everybody get up
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

[Robin Thicke]
If you can’t hear what I’m trying to say
If you can’t read from the same page
Maybe I’m going deaf, maybe I’m going blind
Maybe I’m out of my mind

Ok now he was close, tried to domesticate you
But you’re an animal, baby it’s in your nature
Just let me liberate you
Hey, hey, hey
You don’t need no papers
Hey, hey, hey
Than man is not your maker

[Chorus]
And that’s why I’m gon’ take a good girl,
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
You’re a good girl
Can’t let it get passed me
You’re far from plastic
Talk about getting blasting
I hate these blurred lines
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you’re a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

[Verse 2: Robin Thicke]
What do they make dreams on
When you got them jeans on
What do feelings … from
You the hottest b*tch in this place

[Robin Thicke]
I feel so lucky, you wanna hug me
Hey, hey, hey
What rhymes would hug me?
Hey, hey, hey

[Pre-chorus]
Ok now he was close, tried to domesticate you
But you’re an animal, baby it’s in your nature
Just let me liberate you
Hey, hey, hey

Than man is not your maker
Hey, hey, hey
And that’s why I’m gon’ take

[Chorus]
A good girl,

[Verse 3: T.I.]
One thing I ask you
Let me be the one you bet that ass to
Yo, from Malibu, to Paribu
Yeah, had a big machine daddy
So, hit me up when you pass through
I’ll give you something big enough to take your ass too
Swag on, when when you dress casual
I mean it’s not most unbearable
Then, honey you’re not there when I’m
With my foresight b*tch you pay me by
Nothing like your leg, I ain’t too square for you
I’ll smack that ass and pull your hair like that
So I jail watch, hand wave for you to salute
But you didn’t pick
Not many women get a …
But I’m a nice guy, but you get it if you get with me

[Robin Thicke]
Shake the vibe, get down, get up,
Do it like it hurt, like it hurt
Watcha doing like word

Baby can you breathe? I got this from Jamaica
It always works for me, Dakota to Dakata, uh huh
No more pretending,
Hey, hey, hey
Cause now you winning
Hey, hey, hey
Here’s our beginning
Hey, hey, hey

[Chorus]
I always wanted a good girl,
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
You’re a good girl
Can’t let it get passed me
You’re far from ṗlastic
Talk about getting blasting
I hate these blurred lines
(Everybody get up)
I know you want it
I know you want it
I know you want it
But you’re a good girl
The way you grab me
Must wanna get nasty
Go ahead, get at me

[Outro]
Everybody get up
Everybody get up
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey
