Council Worker In Trouble After Calling Prince George A ‘F*cking D*ckhead’
Angela Gibbins, head of global estates at The British Council, has faced pretty serious backlash aftersharing a controversial meme that calls a 3-year-old child a ‘dickhead’ and adding some of her own less-than-nice views along with it.
Think what you may about the British monarchy, but maybe we shouldprobablyhold off on the name-calling until they at least hit 16 years of age.
Here’s the meme in question:
Thememe, posted by notoriously rude page ‘f*ckjerry’, seems to be causing a bit of controversy – it has been shared almost 26,000 times, butquite a lot of people arent happy, pointing out that the poor kid is only 3 years old.
Gibbins shared the post, saying:
“White privilege. That cheeky grin is the innate knowledge he’s royal, rich, advantaged and will never know *any* difficulties or hardships in life.
Let’s find photos of 3yo Syrian refugee children and see if they look alike, eh?”
Facebook users began disagreeing with her in the comments, to which she responded: “I’m sound in my socialist, atheist and republican opinions.
“I don’t believe the royal family have any place in a modern democracy, least of all when they live on public money. That’s privilege and it needs to end.”
The British Council is a charity, they work to promote the UK and the English language in over 100 countries.The organisation also, notably,has a royal charter and its patron is the Queen. Awkward.
A spokesperson for the charity told the Metro:
“This comment was made on a private social media account.
It has absolutely no connection to the British Council and does not represent the views of the British Council.
That said, we expect the highest standards of our staff and we will be investigating the matter further.”
Uh oh, someone’s in trouble.
