The BBC has fired a British radio presenter Danny Baker over his stupidity he did on Twitter about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s new baby. The man tweeted an image of a chimpanzee dressed in clothes below the caption “Royal Baby leaves hospital”. Danny Baker deleted his tweet within hours, but it circulated widely online and drew outrage for its racist imagery. British social media users called for the BBC to fire him. He then announced his firing with another tweet. Radio 5 Live confirmed the news in a statement, calling Mr. Baker’s initial tweet a serious error of judgment that goes against the values we as a station aim to embody.
“Once again. Sincere apologies for the stupid unthinking gag pic earlier. Was supposed to be joke about Royals vs circus animals in posh clothes but interpreted as about monkeys & race, so rightly deleted. Royal watching not my forte. Also, guessing it was my turn in the barrel. Just got fired from @bbc5live. For the record – it was red sauce. Always.”, read the tweet.
