BBC Fires Radio Host for Comparing Royal Baby to Chimp

4

The BBC has sacked Danny Baker saying he showed a “serious error of judgement” over his tweet about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s baby.

The tweet, which he later deleted but which has been circulated on social media, showed an image of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee dressed in clothes with the caption: “Royal Baby leaves hospital”.

The BBC Live presenter was accused of mocking the duchess’s racial heritage. The corporation said Baker’s tweet “goes against the values we as a station aim to embody”.

Baker claimed it was a “stupid gag”.

“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.”

  1. If they would have called Jews “baby killers” or terrorists “freedom fighters “ that would have been ok

  2. I think we should ban monkeys and apes. That would solve any racist connection. The liberals mind has literally warped that it cant tell the difference between a joke and an innocent comment .

    • You are wrong. I don’t particularly care about the British Royal Family one way or the other.

      However comparing any baby or for that matter any human being to an animal very publicly, is repugnant. It reduces what was created b tzelem elokim to something base. It also shows the disgusting mindset of the person doing it.

      This has nothing to do with being liberal ( which I am not) or conservative.
