The Daily Mirror is reporting this morning that Prince Harry made racist remarks, basically trying to make a joke, but massively failing. He made the comment about a Pakastani officer. You would think the new Barak world for change wouldn’t allow things like this.
Speaking on Five’s The Wright Stuff yesterday, Amos said it came as he lined up with other stars after the performance.
He explained: “Harry said, ‘Hello, tell me, amusing… but you don’t sound like a black chap.”
As fellow panellist Lowri Turner gasped along with presenter Wright, Amos added: “I wanted to say, (putting on an accent) ‘How is I supposed to sound?’” Asked if the remark had been made in jest, he replied: “I hope it was.” But Turner scoffed: “That’s not the point.”
I really think use of the word “chap” counters out any possible racist connotations. But that’s just me, what would I know? My mouth never gets me in trouble….
