BBC host fired for his royal baby chimp tweet

22:26, May 10

BBC 5 Live host of the British radio station Danny Baker was fired for tweeting, in which he compared the newborn son of Prince Harry and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle to a monkey, BBC reported. 

On May 8, Baker tweeted a black and white photo of a woman holding a chimpanzee in her paws and a man.

The picture was signed “Royal Baby leaves hospital".

Baker's followers have accused him of racism and of hinting at Meghan’s African American background. Soon the presenter deleted the tweet.

The BBC said that Baker had made a “serious mistake” and that his record contradicts the company's values.

It added: "Danny's a brilliant broadcaster but will no longer be presenting a weekly show with us."

The host told Sky News called his tweet "enormous mistake" and said that he was not racist. He said that he wanted to compare the royal family with "circus animals in elegant clothes," but his joke was interpreted differently.

In a later tweet, he added: "Would have used same stupid pic for any other Royal birth or Boris Johnson kid or even one of my own. It's a funny image. (Though not of course in that context.) Enormous mistake, for sure. Grotesque.

Son of Prince Harry and his wife, Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, was born on May 6. He was named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle first showed the child on May 8.
