I wondered how long it would be - this BBC employed racist has tweeted a photo( which I won’t post) likening Archie to a chimpanzee. He’s now deleted it and issued a totally inadequate apology ( not that there could be an adequate one). What an absolute shit - I really think he should be sacked immediately

I’ve never really liked Danny Baker but this has made me dislike him even more. Unfortunately he probably won’t get sacked because he’s one of the Chris Evans clan that seem to get away with anything and everything.

Usually I just shrug my shoulders and turn aside from stuff like this and refuse to let it get to me.

But that is racist and cruel!

maryeliza54 Thu 09-May-19 10:16:18

I find it impossible to imagine what a sewer of a mind he must have.

maryeliza54 Thu 09-May-19 10:17:25

No Sara please don’t call him an idiot - call him a filthy racist

His explanation is he was likening this to a media circus!!!!! Who came up with that excuse.

What was he thinking and how stupid and nasty to target a new horn.

I expect he was drunk as he was always part of that Chris Evans Gaza’s brigade.

Sack him and good riddance

I've never liked him because he always seems so pleased with himself. I hope he feels ashamed of himself now.

ninathenana Thu 09-May-19 10:23:27

How would he think this acceptable on any level.

Sacking is too good for him, sack cloth and ashes more like !

FarNorth Thu 09-May-19 10:27:01

That's plain nasty and it just makes it worse to come out with that pathetic excuse.

Sara65 Thu 09-May-19 10:34:59


Ok, I’m more than happy with that description!

maryeliza54 Thu 09-May-19 10:34:59

The same day as that beautiful photograph on all the front pages which might have given some hope and DB reminds us sharply what really plays to the gallery. Well I’m off to complain to the BBC and find a petition to sign.

GrandmaJan Thu 09-May-19 10:35:42

How wrong I was. He has now been sacked. Well done BBC.

tanith Thu 09-May-19 10:36:18

He’s been sacked now.

maryeliza54 Thu 09-May-19 10:37:38

Sorry Sara if I was a bit sharp but I really think it’s important to call out racism for what is and not label it as stupid when it’s actually evil. I’m now going to shout


AnnS1 Thu 09-May-19 10:40:00

Good, well rid.

maryeliza54 Thu 09-May-19 10:41:32

James O’Brien trying to excuse him by saying he often posts photos of animals dressed as humans - so that’s OK then? Phew.

Sara65 Thu 09-May-19 10:42:12


Apology accepted, you were right!

jaylucy Thu 09-May-19 10:42:35

IMO Danny Baker is a complete idiot, full of his own importance anyway! Why on earth he has been employed by any company in the positions he has held is beyond me! If he has been sacked sincerely hope it is the last we see or hear from him - what on earth was he thinking?

AllTheLs Thu 09-May-19 10:43:55

Who's Danny Baker?

maryeliza54 Thu 09-May-19 10:46:15

DB is a racist who until a few minutes ago was being paid by us for spewing out rubbish on BBC5.

Squiffy Thu 09-May-19 10:48:56

He's been sacked!

Sara65 Thu 09-May-19 11:00:30

Never understood what people saw in him anyway!
Very pleased he’s gone

glammanana Thu 09-May-19 11:06:19

Great news he's been sacked and I hope he doesn't creep up anywhere else.
Can he not be arrested and charged for racist comments on social media or am I wrong on that.?
