English Comedian Apologises After Sharing A Picture Of A Monkey He Referred To As The Royal Baby

An English comedian, Danny Baker recently came under fire after he posted a photo of a monkey and referred to it as the royal baby. This was shortly after Meghan and Harry shared a photo of the baby Archie with the world. Baker tweeted a photo of a couple clutching on to a monkey dressed in a suit and captioned it with “Royal baby leaves hospital.” Baker quickly took the post down after he was criticised by many on Twitter. He issued an apology claiming his post was not meant to be racist. He shared that: “Sorry my gag pic of the little fella in the posh outfit has whipped some up. Never occurred to me because, well, mind not diseased. Soon as those good enough to point out it’s possible connotations got in touch, down it came. And that’s it. Now stand by for sweary football tweets.” The 61-year-old, who presents a weekly show on BBC Radio 5 Live, apologised once again on Wednesday saying the joke was intended to poke fun at the Royal family. “Once again. Sincere apologies for the stupid unthinking gag pic earlier. Was supposed to be joke about Royals vs circus animals in posh clothes but interpreted as about monkeys & race, so rightly deleted. Royal watching not my forte. Also, guessing it was my turn in the barrel.”Photo Credit: Getty
