Where did he find that picture? The woman doesn't look much like Megan.

Well he obviously fvked up big time but from the gist of the rest of his tweets I get that he looked at it as a posh chimp and uploaded it rather than making the connection of the mother being a person of color....which even a 10 year old would have the common sense to get...and then NOT upload that picture.
Anyway, I love the name Archie!! I bet he would be the funniest and fun-est one of the lot!

He claims that “he didn’t even know which of our royal princesses had given birth”.

Which stone has he been hiding under for the last few weeks?!

For once the Beeb got it right. I hope this guy is never employed again by anyone anywhere. And I am not a royalist - au contraire !

exactly. Firstly claiming he didn’t know it was racist (he’s a football commentator where the subject of bananas, monkeys and black players is constantly coming up) and then he’s claiming he didn’t know about the birth. And he’s in media.

He will be back though. Give it a couple of months.

So people should be reduced to begging on the streets for survival, because of an offensive tweet? Wow. You'd fit right in at the gulag - as a guard.

Interesting how, yet again, brexiteers come out in defence of racism.

Common decency is unknown to many of those racists. Among these I include the half-witted DJ recently fired by the Beeb.

**** me.

I like Danny Baker as a presenter / host etc but how he thinks ignorance as an excuse can wriggle him out of this is beyond me. Shameful.

"Common decency", Scot, would normally be understood to not cheer a man's life being destroyed because of an inappropriate message - whether intentional or not.

Agree with the outcome etc but the BBC is a mess. We didn't see Sir Alan Sugar getting the bullet for his twitter picture and comment comparing an African football team to the lookee lookee guys on the beach.

What this person did was offensive by anyone's standards and so he was taken off air .

Whether he was ever anything more than a shock jock type is in question for me. He was certainly not anything other than a bit of a - bleep- which he always was. You don't do comedy , good comedy in this way. I do actually hope that his time on air, or any other sort of media for that matter has now passed He has plenty of other avenues to explore and I am sure this rather something or other person will find them.

Standards people. Standards. Keep it out there for every single person on this planet.

Keep it out there for our planet too.
