The BBC has received 63 complaints after it emerged Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke called his dance partner Laila Rouass a “Paki”.
The dancer issued an apology after the News of the World revealed he had used the offensive term to describe the actor Laila Rouass, his partner on the BBC1 show.
Du Beke reportedly said Rouass, who is mixed race, “looked like a Paki” after she turned up to a rehearsal with a spray tan. Rouass is said to have stormed out of the rehearsal two weeks ago.
A BBC spokesman said: “The BBC does not condone offensive language in the workplace. Anton Du Beke has apologised to Laila, who has accepted his apology.”
What an ignorant little fool!
I bet he uses that racist term and more on a regular basis.
I wonder if old Anton here votes BNP….
