BBC fires radio presenter after chimpanzee tweet about new royal baby

Tweet

Meghan, wife of Prince Harry, gave birth in the early hours of Monday morning to a baby boy, Archie, the first mixed race child to be born into a senior position in British royalty in recent history.

“Just got fired,” Danny Baker, a broadcaster with BBC Radio 5 Live, said on Twitter.

The BBC said the tweet was a serious error of judgment that went “against the values we as a station aim to embody”.

“Danny’s a brilliant broadcaster but will no longer be presenting a weekly show with us,” the BBC said.
