Apparently "Nigel Farage has been dragged into another race row" because UKIP PPC, Nathan Garbutt, commented on a picture of a hippo chasing a man on Facebook 6 months ago which someone had said was Gemma Collins chasing Tinchy Strider (a reference to I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here which ther were both in at the time) saying he hoped Collins didn't think Stryder was a Freddo chocolate bar.
It would appear that it is now unacceptable to refer to a black person and a chocolate bar in the sentence, regardless of context because it's automatically racist. It doesn't matter that a Freddo is a miniature chocolate bar and that Tinchy Stryder is only 5ft 5" or that Gemma Collins is a big lady who spent her whole time in the jungle complaining about being hungry, chocolate is brown and Tinchy Stryder has brown skin therefore it must be a reference to the colour of his skin and racist.
After wheeling out a few politicians to say how awful and racist UKIP are, Nathan Garbutt's explanation comes right at the bottom of the article, sandwiched between a picture of Gemma Collins and a video of Michael Burke rapping:
It was harmless fun. It was aimed at Gemma being hungry.So ... not racist at all then? While people like the gutter press journalists at the Mirror continue to see a difference between white and black people and find offence on their behalf at any innocent comment involving a black person, racism will always be a problem. Tinchy Styder isn't a black man, he's just a man and the Mirror should be ashamed of themselves for using the colour of his skin to try and score political points.
She was a larger girl and most of the time she was talking about how hungry she was and how much she could eat and that’s where it came from.
