Samantha Armytage shockingly made a racial slur towards twins, her co-hosts face is a picture.
The presenter was introducing the British twins Lucy who has white skin and ginger hair and her twin sister Maria born with black skin and hair.
She decided to congratulate Lucy for her skin colour by saying ‘good on her!’.
Since the incident, Samantha has apologised.
I would be mortified if anyone thought I would say or think anything racist. It’s not in my nature. To anyone who I might have offended, I’m sorry.Advertisement
As you can imagine, it did NOT go down well online.
@sam_armytage you're just another ignorant bigot.
