Host clears up comments he made on radio
Speaking on Talksport radio on Wednesday, Bruce, 82, said people should have a ‘sense of humour’ about Anton Du Beke‘s use of the term “Paki”.
But now the host has spoken out again, saying: ‘What Anton said to Laila was wrong and he has apologised unreservedly for this.
‘Nor do I in any way excuse or condone the use of such language. To be absolutely clear, the use of racially offensive language is never either funny or acceptable.
‘However, there is a major difference between this and racist comments which are malicious in intent.
‘And whilst I accept that we live in a world of extraordinary political correctness, we should keep things in perspective.’
Laila, 38, accepted Anton‘s apology after he said she resembled a “Paki” after a fake tan.
