One of those things where his intent is irrelevant really. Shame though

That's about it, yes.

And he'll forever be branded "racist" now.

I don't think he is racist, but it was certainly a bit of a faux-paux.  

Horribly inappropriate and once again the BBC takes the knee-jerk easy action. Shame they weren’t so quick to react when Savile was at it.
Saturday morning drives will now be much duller.

Ah the old classic, sorry but it's your fault if you felt offended with your silly diseased mind.

I don't understand what the joke is if there is no racial connotation? Class and demeanour makes no sense.

Good riddance.

Well that isn't what he said.

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.

He says he was comparing the Royals to circus animals, which does make sense, doesn't it?   I am sure many have made the same comparison over the years.

He then states it was rightfuly deleeted, and later says it was an "enormous mistake, for sure. Grotesque."

I can see why he was sacked, just think it is all a bit sad.   If he had a whole bunch of previous then it would be different.

I mostly like Danny Baker but that was a terrible misjudgment and most probably numbed at the time by alcohol imo.

It was in the afternoon so he was pissed Smiley

I love the man his live show is quite something never been to anything like it and more than your monies worth.

He is far to good for British radio and has been for many years, can understand why this was a sackable offence though

Every night he Tweets a variation on this theme, so yes, you are maybe right.

His original "apology" before he engaged his brain.

I hadn't seen his explanation about the joke, agree he is probably not a racist and just an idiot. What a mean spirited image to post anyway of parents that have just had a child.

Amazes me that people in the public eye are this stupid. The perils of the booze I suppose.

I do think it's a bit of a dick move that his defence was basically - I wasn't being racist about a baby; I was just mocking and making fun of a baby.

This was his explanation as to "class & demeanour";



That's what the stupid pic said to me. Money & grandeur undercut by a circus turn in a toffs suit. The outfit is the joke. Once the racial thing was pointed out to me - I am far from a royal watcher - of course I deleted it. All else is overheated Twitter horse shit.

He explicitly equated a child with mixed race heritage to a monkey.

If he's not being racist he should be sacked anyway - for being stupid.
