Kung Fu Fighting British Singer Arrested On Grounds Of Racial Aggravation

Free simon ledger Kung Fu Fighting Kung Fu Fighting Singer Arrested For Racial AggravationA ‘Kung Fu Fighting’ singer in Britain has been arrested on the grounds of racial aggravation after apparently offending two passers-by of Chinese origin with his rendition.

British man Simon Ledger says he fears he will end up with a criminal record for performing the 1974 disco classic at a seafront bar on the Isle of Wight in the UK on Sunday, reports The County Press.

The 34-year-old, who lives in Shanklin, regularly features Carl Douglas’ 1974 number one hit in his set when he performs at the Driftwood Beach Bar in Sandown.

But, after striking up the melody in front of customers at the weekend, he noticed a man of Chinese origin walking past with his mother, making gestures at him and taking a picture on his mobile phone.

Later on Sunday evening, Mr Ledger was dining at the Dragon Pearl Chinese restaurant in Shanklin when he received a call from the police saying they wanted to meet him.

He was then arrested and bailed pending further enquiries, The County Press reports.

An Isle of Wight police spokesperson confirmed, “A 34-year-old man from Shanklin was arrested on suspicion of causing harassment, alarm or distress under section 4A of the Public Order Act 1986.”

As a result of his arrest, Mr Ledger has found himself on the front page of British national newspaper The Sun today.

Mr Ledger told The Sun, “We were performing ‘Kung Fu Fighting,’ as we do during all our sets. People of all races were loving it, Chinese people have never been offended before.”

Ledger continued, “I honestly cannot believe how much this has been blown out of all proportion. The last thing I want is to be portrayed as a racist because I certainly am not.”

Singing and performing for more than 20 years, Mr Ledger has played on cruise ships in the past.

He also starred on former British entertainer Michael Barrymore’s popular TV program, ‘My Kind of Music’ several years ago.

The performer said he “couldn’t believe it when I was actually arrested,” reports the County Press.
