I've seen. A few similar images and they are amusing, but unfortunately the PC brigade are very prevalent in today's society with their special wording of "totally unexceptable " banded about here there and everywhere.

And to think of some of the stuff you've got up to on the one show. How times have changed

Overreaction with the usual caving in to the baying mob.

What a spazzy world we live in.

Don't think so.

A friend of mine of Nigerian origin knew Danny from when they young men and has told lots of stories none of which put Danny in a bad light.

From what my mate has told me I don't believe he is racist at all. That said I have never warmed to his radio show. As for the joke I assume that all jokes about primates are now out of bounds because some people take offence.

He apologised that should have been the end of it unless the Royal couple had something to say about it.

In this crazy world of ours the BBC will forgive killers and drug takers but they never forgive a comment that is deemed racist.

I have a healthy aversion to political correctness, but in my opinion the joke was unwarranted and in terribly bad taste.

Is a great summary.

With you on this..incl the brown sauce. Serious error of judgement even if not intentional; however having made more than one fulsome apology and taking it down within an hour of it being up there I really do despair with today's PC culture.

Saw him and Gary Lineker just the other week at Wimbledon theatre...he's certainly livid a full life, with this just being yet another 30sec annecdote to add to the list...

You’re right but how many people are truly offended, let alone outraged? And even if they are then so what? They’ll be offended about something else in an hour.
To sack someone for a bad joke that will be forgotten by tomorrow seems an over reaction.

Fair enough, but what if (say) someone posted a photo of a chimpanzee wearing a football kit flanked by a couple of tracksuited humans and added the caption "Crystal Palace striker signs new contract". Acceptable? Funny?

Certainly not worth making someone unemployed over.

Agree with this.

The sacking is appropriate really, punishment enough. Can the world move on?

Doubtful.

I'd just think that it would probably do a better job.
