BBC radio host Danny Baker has been fired after he reportedly compared the new royal baby to a monkey in a tweet.
It’s only been a few days since prince Harry and Meghan Markle’ welcomed their baby boy Archie, but that did not stop the BBC radio broadcaster Danny Baker from making foul about the newly born prince.
He obviously don’t not understand that children are off limits when making a bad comment.
Barker was officially fired from his job at BBC after he posted a racist tweet about baby Archie, when he reportedly tweeted a black and white photo of a man and woman holding hands with a chimpanzee in a suit and hat, with a caption that said:
“Royal baby leaves hospital”
The ex BBC On Air Personality (OAP) later in a tweet described the incident as a mistake and that people misunderstood his joke tweet as a racist statement.
“It was supposed to be a joke about Royals vs circus animals in posh clothes but interpreted as about monkeys and race, so rightly deleted”.
The radio station spokesperson released a statement concerning Danny’s dismissal.
The statement reads:
“This was a serious error of judgement and goes against the values we as a station aim to embody. Danny’s a brilliant broadcaster but will no longer be presenting a weekly show with us”
An immediate response to the statement was made by Barker in a tweet claiming that the company did not support him but threw him under the bus.
“Literally threw me under the bus”
It did not come as a surprise that baby Archie is receiving racial and bad comments.
It is however too early for that, since the baby is just a few days old and holds the title of being the first biracial child in the royal family; This might not hold steady with some racially charged individuals in the UK however majority of British nationals are happy and appreciative of the Royals .
