BBC Is Apparently Not Sure If Racist Thing Is Actually Racist

Selin Kilic November 1, 2016 November 1st, 2016

So just in case you missed it, BBC asked a casually racist question like it was NBD this Monday on Twitter. On the last day of Black History Month (in the UK), much less, leaving the rest of us like “Seriously BBC WTF?”

The video and tweet in question were posted by BBC Newsbeat asking “Is it true all black people like chicken?”

D4MN.

There was obviously, expectedly, some back-lash.

PREACH

To which BBC desperately tried to save face and deleted the tweet….And then completely failed to grasp the point, left the video up and just changed the caption.

People were clearly still not pleased with, or fooled by this poor attempt at deception:

No seriously? Do you?

Tense indeed.

Ouch.

And finally (I mean, there’s more, but I wanted  to end on a high note) this one literally made me spit-laugh:

Ah BBC, despite your supposed (giving you the serious benefit of the doubt right now) good intentions, you just failed so, so hard. Time to just apologize and go home.
