BBC Broadcaster Got Fired After His Racist Tweet About Prince Harry & Meghan's Son, Archie

May 10, 2019 12:03

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry have just welcomed their first child together. While the world is celebrating, there are a few who aren't too fond of the royals. A correspondent has taken it out on the Sussex baby and he was handled quite immediately.

The Sussex couple revealed their bundle of joy's moniker to be Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. The proud parents have not assigned any title to their son. They mean their sweet tot to lead a non-royal life. He would simply be referred to as Master Archie, no lord or prince. Intentionally degrading his rank will make him less significant to paparazzi.

Paid for the discrimination

BBC announced on Thursday, May 9, that their broadcaster, Danny Baker, is no longer associated with the network. He was fired from BBC Radio 5 Live after he tweeted a “stupid unthinking gag” about the Duke and Duchess' newborn son.

He deliberately posted a photo of Meghan & Harry holding hands along with a chimpanzee in a suit. He captioned it: "Royal baby leaves hospital".

It was considered racist as Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, is actually African-American. Danny later apologized with another tweet and accused the audiences of a bad sense of humor.

People condemned his deed
