People don’t realize that racist images hurt others, BBC host Danny Baker fired after comparing royal baby Archie to a chimp

Among Britain’s best-known broadcasters has been fired by the BBC on Thursday for a tweet this individual wrote comparing the brand new royal baby to a chimp.

Danny Baker, 61, tweeted out a picture of a chimp within a suit holding fingers with a smartly dressed few, writing, “Royal baby simply leaves hospital.”

It caused immediate outrage due to the obvious racist undertones against Duchess of Sussex Meghan, 37, whose mother, Doria Ragland, is African American.

Baker admitted it turned out a “stupid unthinking gag” – but insisted it had been an innocent dig in the royals that has been being wildly misinterpreted.

“Never occurred if you ask me because, well, thoughts not really diseased,” he wrote. “Quickly as those sufficient to point away its likely connotations got in contact, down it arrived. And that’s it.”

He later on called the backfired joke “grotesque” and “a massive mistake,” sending a note to Harry and Meghan’s newborn Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, “Here’s to ya Archie, Sorry mate.”

His apologies weren’t sufficient, however, with him soon tweeting, “Just got fired.”

Baker remained defiant, damning the decision to fire him because the “masterclass of pompous faux-gravity”

Comment from the Author: Royal baby Archie was born on Monday, to the proud parents Meghan and Prince Harry publicly debuting him Wednesday. Such images or comments should not not be made by public officials. It is is not a joke. These young people are enjoying their baby as all parents should. For one jerk, to take away the happiness of others and then give a cheap apology is appalling. He is a grown man, and he knows better. This is not a slip of the tongue. After saying that “Welcome Prince Archie to world and to the family.”

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill, 12th cousin 1x removed

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill is my 12 cousin 1x removed. The ancestor that we share that connects us is Ann Tanfield (1516-1548), my 10th great grandmother.

When Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill was born on November 30, 1874, his father, Lord, was 25 and his mother, Jeanette, was 20. He married Baroness Clementine Ogilvy Hozier on September 12, 1908. They had five children in 13 years. He died on January 24, 1965, at the age of 90, and was buried in Bladon, Oxfordshire, England.

Born into the aristocratic family of the Dukes of Marlborough, a branch of the Spencer family, Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, like his father, used the surname Churchill in public life. His ancestor George Spencer had changed his surname to Spencer-Churchill in 1817 when he became Duke of Marlborough, to highlight his descent from John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough. Winston’s father, Lord Randolph Churchill, the third son of John Spencer-Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough, was a politician; and his mother, Lady Randolph Churchill (née Jennie Jerome) was the daughter of American millionaire Leonard Jerome. Winston was born on 30 November 1874, two months prematurely, in a bedroom in Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, Oxfordshire.
