A black woman is demanding an apology from NHS chiefs after she was sent a letter saying her password was set as ‘charcoal shade’ for a hospital website.
Leanda Probert, 31, from Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, was horrified when she discovered the ‘highly offensive’ password in a letter asking her to book an online appointment with a pain management clinic.
The mother-of-one, who suffers from crippling condition fibromyalgia, said she thought NHS North Somerset was ‘having a laugh’ and ‘taking the mick’ when she opened the letter.
She said: ‘I was very taken aback and highly offended.
‘I understand these passwords are computer generated, but I just think certain words should not be included because they could be offensive to some people.
‘I am a black woman and I think those two words “charcoal shade” coupled together is just too much and I found it very very offensive.
‘The letter must have been put in an envelope by someone – why did they not proof read it and realise it could be offensive?’ Continue Reading….
This in my opinion is RIDICULOUS.
Leanda I am not really buying your OUTRAGE over a random password that has been computer generated.
My advice to you would be to contact the media again when you have experienced something genuinely offensive.
UPDATE: Thank you reader Mackails for informing me that this idiot of a woman, who claims to be “offended” over a computer generated password calls herself ‘Princess Darkie’ on Instagram.
Leanda take several seats!
You couldn’t make this nonsense up.
