Danny Baker's loathsomely racist 'monkey' royal baby tweet

    Sasaferrato Grateful for what I have.

    Baker has been sacked from his BBC post for Tweeting a picture of two people and a chimpanzee under the heading of 'Royal baby leaving hospital', or similar.

    What a fucking arsehole.

    Just to clarify, I couldn't give a flying fuck about the new baby, a baby is a baby, but that level of moronic racism should not be directed at any family.

    Incidentally, he finished his 'apology' with the comment 'I guess it was my turn in the barrel'. I regard that as grossly homophobic.

    OK consider me suitably chastised for not 'UTFSE'. :facepalm::oops::(:(:(:(:(

    In my defence, I've not had a good morning. I forgot two things when I went for my shower, the first was my towel, the second was that Mrs Sas had a friend visiting.

    I met the second whilst heading to the bedroom for the first. :oops::oops::oops::oops::oops:

    Tbf Sass the comments are spread over two threads and tbh a single thread for the subject was suggested by someone (can't remember who, sorry) so it's not a bad idea :)

    What the fuck did you find fucking funny about it?

    A mixed race royal just gave birth to a kid and he posted a picture of a chimp with some royals.

    Am I missing something here?

    'My turn in the barrel' has nothing to do with fish.

    Ffs, how can it be anything but fucking racist?

    If she wasn't mixed race it would be totally out of context so why would it have been funny?

    Ffs, Fish :facepalm: :mad:

    Intentionally racist or not I'm still struggling to see what's in any way funny about it. :confused:

    The definition of hilarious is a picture of a baby chimp in a suit.

    Oh, hang on. :(

    For context, IIRC he has form for finding pictures of Monkeys dressed up, funny (not my taste, though I suppose vaguely understandable).

    Quite good thread from cassetteboy, suggesting look for wider evidence of intent. I guess the ship has sailed on most opinions though. Cassetteboy (@Cassetteboy) on Twitter
