Radio presenter Danny Baker has conceded he made a mistake after getting into hot water following a tweet in which he included a picture of a big fuck off swastika.
“The connection between this funny looking symbol and racism never occurred to me,” Baker said in a statement.
“As soon as some good people alerted me to its connotations, I deleted the tweet with sincere apologies, but I had no idea because I’m so pure.”
Baker has since been fired by the BBC, with a spokesman saying: “We cannot tolerate this kind of offensive tweeting from our staff.”
“However, Danny will be more than welcome on Question Time every other week for the rest of his life or simply to be a talking head on every news segment about Brexit.”
