If your first thought is " it was racist" you have serious mental dilutions, and are unable to see simple reality.

Only people on the left equate chimps and gorillas with black people. You can't make any joke or reference about chimps or gorillas without someone on the left turning it into something about black people.

Ridiculous. I'm not Danny Bakers biggest fan, but he was clearly referring to the Circus event of another Royal birth. I've called all my kids "Cheeky Monkeys", sad to discover I'm now a racist? #utterbollocks.

Can someone explain how his joke was racist? I'm so confused...

this is pretty confusing, I'm sure Danny Baker isn't a racist and can't see him being racist, I imagine the context has probably been left out by every person & MSM outlet predisposed to racial hypersensitivity. This is becoming fairly frequent these days. I can imagine him being so uninterested in the race thing that it wouldn't have crossed his mind, leaving him a target to virtue signalers. still, i should look into it if I can be arsed, it just doesnt seem like a motivation Danny would have, in fact knowing his personality I'd have thought him to be pro-royal, the future sure has turned out weird, and slightly disquieting.

I would depict all the royals as various parasites like ticks, worms, lice, mites and bugs. Just the common ones, nothing rare or special.

If I were a chimpanzee I would be outraged at being compared to a royal .

Babies literally act and look like monkeys. So I don’t see how it could be racist unless she poped out a black kid.

Saw this as a meme on Reddit, thought it was funny, not offensive in the slightest. This is such a pussy generation we live in.

it was a stupid prank but an apology and some sort of administrative action would be more fitting. (We all know royal are reptiles not mammals so a lizard would look better in that photo)
