The former London Mayor told Julia that Labour's anti-semitism problem was greatly exaggerated, adding that someone making offensive comments towards Jews was not necessarily guilty of anti-semitism.
He told Julia that some Labour members "have made offensive comments, it doesn’t mean they’re inherently anti-Semitic and hate Jews. They just go over the top when they criticise Israel.
"The people criticising Israeli government policy aren’t criticising people who are Jewish in Britain...they’re criticising a government like Jeremy Corbyn criticises Saudi Arabia for its abuse of many of its peoples."
Twitter users have hit back at Livingstone by saying that his definition of anti-semitism is totally incorrect, with some calling on him to look at the definition of anti-Semitism.
Others have simply suggested his comments in the interview were typical of him to make.
