Danny Baker says he’s been fired from BBC Radio 5 Live, following a “stupid unthinking gag.”
Last night the broadcaster deleted the tweet, which showed an image of two people holding hands with a chimp, dressed in clothes. It was captioned “Royal Baby leaves hospital.”
He was accused of mocking the Duchess of Sussex’s racial background.
Last night he stated:
“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.”
