BBC fires ‘racist’ royal baby tweet Danny Baker

Broadcaster Danny Baker has been sacked by BBC Radio 5 Live after tweeting a joke about the Duke and Duchess Of Sussex’s son using a picture of a monkey.

Baker shared a short message on Twitter saying he’d been fired by 5 Live where the 61-year-old broadcaster presented a weekend show.

The mention of “red sauce” in his tweet is a reference to a radio feature on his show called the Sausage Sandwich Game which culminates in the question “red sauce, brown sauce or no sauce at all?”

He followed the news up on Twitter with a tirade against the BBC accusing the corporation of “throwing me under the bus” by dismissing him.
