BBC Sacks Host Danny Baker For Mocking Royal Baby Sussex
Once again. Sincere apologies for the stupid unthinking gag pic earlier. Was supposed to be joke about Royals vs circus animals in posh clothes but interpreted as about monkeys & race, so rightly deleted. Royal watching not my forte.
Also, guessing it was my turn in the barrel. pic.twitter.com/86cQGbAhDc

Here we go.
Opened door, grinning Mail hack.
“Do you think black people look like monkeys?”
Any other time you’d knock someone right on their arse for saying that.
No mate. Gag pic. Posh baby chimp. Alerted to circs. Appalled. Deleted. Apologised.
He asks again! #MailonRacism

“All I can do is make light of what’s happened to me in the last 18 hours,” he said per The Mirror.
“I blushed that anyone could have thought [racism] was the intent behind [the tweet]. Intent has got to be everything,” he added, claiming he had been wanting to make a statement about class with his original tweet.
See some reactions below :
Danny Baker (a man I’ve worked with in the past) knew full well what that tweet was suggesting. No comedian in their right mind could overlook that, that’s not how our brains work. We see a joke from every angle. He knew it was racist, thought it was funny and posted it anyway 👍🏾

I’m really confused about the message that #DannyBaker (@prodnose) was trying to convey? You had 3 other chances to post that photo when George, Charlotte and Louis were born but chose to post it now? You are not silly or ill informed! You my dear are a #racist! Pure and simple!

I trust now that the BBC has sacked Danny Baker they also wont give any time to massive racists like Tommy Robinson and Nigel Farage pic.twitter.com/zRsT9vdVLT
