Danny Baker of BBC Radio 5 made the ultimate insult to Meghan and Prince Harry by equating their son with a monkey via a Twitter post yesterday. While those who cared are celebrating a new life and a healthy mother, he is tearing down black women and their children everywhere.
Once the shit hit the fan here is what the looser racist had to say to his 500,000+ followers of which at least 91 had liked it before he removed the “let me show you who I really am Tweet” was removed:
‘Sorry my gag pic of the little fella in the posh outfit has whipped some up. Never occurred to me because, well, mind not diseased. ‘Soon as those good enough to point out its possible connotations got in touch, down it came. And that’s it. ‘Now stand by for sweary football tweets.’–Danny Baker
In the meantime, he still has a Twitter account and a job at the BBC. I am steaming. Are you?
