The BBC has defended Jo Brand against claims she incited violence through comments made during a radio show.
The comedian, a guest on BBC Radio 4's Heresy on Tuesday, joked about throwing battery acid at "unpleasant characters" rather than milkshakes.
Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage, who was hit by a milkshake last month, said "the police need to act".
The BBC said the jokes made on Heresy are "deliberately provocative as the title implies".
It added they are "not intended to be taken seriously."
Brand, speaking after Mr Farage and a number of far-right European election candidates were covered in milkshakes during campaign walkabouts in May, said "Why bother with a milkshake when you could get some battery acid?"
