Would have used same stupid pic for any other Royal birth or Boris Johnson kid or even one of my own. It's a funny image. (Though not of course in that context.) Enormous mistake, for sure. Grotesque.
Anyway, here's to ya Archie, Sorry mate.#Occam #Razor
The call to fire me from @bbc5live was a masterclass of pompous faux-gravity. Took a tone that said I actually meant that ridiculous tweet and the BBC must uphold blah blah blah. Literally threw me under the bus. Could hear the suits knees knocking. #Fuckem— Danny Baker (@prodnose) May 9, 2019
Now, I want you to take a moment to envision what a fella like Danny Baker might look like... age? Ethnicity? weight?
Yep, you were right!
SHORT THREAD: Let’s break down the Danny Baker situation. Meghan has been subject to horrific/veiled racist abuse & prejudice online and in print since the start of their relationship. Of which we are ALL aware.— Charlene White (@CharleneWhite) May 9, 2019
To post a pic picturing a 3-day old baby of mixed heritage as a monkey, then claim it was a joke? That’s old-school prejudice and racism at its peak. And for a trusted broadcaster working at a public service broadcaster to feed that prejudice? It’s unacceptable.— Charlene White (@CharleneWhite) May 9, 2019
And to claim “ignorance”, and give a half-hearted apology - again full of jokey “banter” - despite people highlighting just how clearly offensive it is, is also unacceptable. That’s not the world we live in now. Those who live in privilege must be held to account.— Charlene White (@CharleneWhite) May 9, 2019
