Angela Gibbins, 52, an official at the British Council who’s funded by taxpayers to promote UK culture to the globe has used Facebook as an outlet to go full hog on little Prince George. A Facebook troll captioned the following with a picture of Prince George, “I know he’s only two years old [sic], but Prince George already looks like a f****** d***head”, according to The Sun.
Underneath the picture, she commented: “White privilege. That cheeky grin is the innate knowledge he’s royal, rich, advantaged and will never know ANY difficulties or hardships in life. Let’s find photos of 3yo Syrian refugee children and see if they look alike, eh?”
Sparking outrage among her Facebook friends, Gibbins was called a “disgrace to humanity” and was told to take “some time off the internet.” Her response includes the following:
“I have a multi-faceted political opinion. That’s not hate, and I hate no human being on this planet as an individual.
“But I do disagree with the system that creates privilege of any sort. And I have a dedication to calling that out for what it is.”
“I’m sound in my socialist, atheist and republican opinions.
“I don’t believe the royal family have any place in a modern democracy, least of all when they live on public money. That’s privilege and it needs to end.”
The Sun reports that Gibbins earns approximately £80,000 salary. The British Council added that “These are certainly not the views of the British Council.”
What a crazy world this has become…
