BBC Radio Host Apologizes For Racist Tweet About Royal Newborn

A British radio presenter is apologizing after a writing a racist tweet about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s newborn baby boy.  Danny Baker, who was fired by the BBC on May 9, is accused of mocking the Duchess of Sussex’s heritage with a tweet of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee dressed in human clothing. The tweet, which Baker deleted, included the caption: “royal baby leaves hospital.” “This was a serious error of judgment and goes against the values we as a station aim to embody,” a BBC...

  1. “Vehemently apologized” is a joke. He put it out there and he can just own it. His explanation is absurd and insulting. He needs to admit he is a racist, and then get woke. Harry and Megan are a beautiful couple. I wish I lived in the beautiful future when no one even knows the word racism. But I will just have to do what I can do to battle it in the here and now.

  2. Of course he’s sorry because he’s losing his job but if he was really sorry he would have never posted the tweet! You can only hide being a racist for so long until one day your true self shows! So, why apologize for who he really is just own it and keep it moving! ?

  3. Only a pathetic, unloved, ignorant, unsympathetic poor excuse for a human being would put time and energy into crafting a vile, racist insult and then aim it at an innocent baby – one not even a week old – and his loving parents. This would be true whether the child had royal blood in his veins, or was the child of any other so-called “mixed race couple”, subjected to such degradation. I imagine that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will have forgiven him, if this came to their attention at all. Having lost his job, however, he will have a tough time forgiving himself. That, along with worldwide condemnation and public humiliation, ought to be sufficient penance.

    1. Absolutely! He then tried to insult everyones intelligence by saying he met to compare the couple and baby to the circus, or some foolishness alone those lines. It is disgusting.

  4. “After tweeting the image, Baker said he was alerted that the royal baby was biracial…” As of this fact wasn’t widely covered in British and worldwide media for years!
