During a visit to a country pub popular TV chef Lorraine Pascale was told by the pub landlord that “all niggers should go home”.
The presenter of Baking Made Easy tweeted:
I don’t know who angers me the most. The racist pub landlord or Lorraine Pascale who after being racially abused still put money in the landlord’s pocket by purchasing his stinking pork scratchings.
Why would you still go ahead and purchase the cretin’s goods after that outburst? I would have thrown the pork scratchings down, walked out of the pub, tweeted the name and a photograph of the pub to my followers, and then I would have filed an official complaint.
How can she expect us to see the funny side of this incident? I’m not laughing.
I tweeted Lorraine asking her why she ‘doesn’t name the pub and how can she see the funny side of this? Wake up’.
“After 40 years of fighting I’m tired of it my dear and I am well awake thank you”.
Okay fair enough. But Lorraine has since deleted her reply and blocked me (????).
Hilarious, the racist pub landlord gets off with just Lorraine’s “best bitchy LP glare” (I bet this shook him to his very core) and walks away with her hard earned cash in his pocket, but me a fellow black woman gets blocked for asking her a few simple questions regarding the situation.
I’m the problem? What’s that all about?
Lorraine is a high profile media personality so if she named the pub this would then ultimately lead to the naming and shaming of the landlord. The press would then descend on the pub with a quickness with the authorities in tow.
The landlord should be reported to the police and will probably just get off with a warning, but the thought of that fool sweating and soiling himself for weeks due to the unwanted attention would give me some satisfaction.
But no it is better to just give a dirty look, tweet about the experience, laugh it off and don’t dare rock the boat for yourself.
The Daily Mail reports that last month, Lorraine called in police after being abused by a racist American Twitter user @spiderleman and a year ago she complained to the Met over a slur by a user in Britain. The former model and mother-of one claimed that the social networking site in the U.S. did not stop racists opening new accounts every time they were shut down.
So Lorraine will report people who racially abuse her on Twitter but won’t report or name and shame a man who racially abused her to her FACE in a pub out in the English countryside.
Black British celebs…such logical thinkers and so brave. Don’t you just love em?
Your thoughts please….
