ALL hell broke loose on Good Morning Britain today when guest Leo Kearse claimed women in burkas “look like letterboxes”.
The comedian also said white men with rosy cheeks look like gammon in a heated debate about when to cancel those in the public eye.
The Prime Minister came under fire in 2018 when he wrote that burkas made women look like “bank robbers” or “mailboxes”.
Leo said today that they do, and that the comment was simply a “visual gag” – adding that “they look a bit like mailboxes.”
People were outraged on Twitter, and Leo faced accusations of racism.
One person asked: “Who’s the racist on ITV’s GMB (Leo) today? #GMB”
As another suggested: “Leo, did he really just say that on National TV? He said they really do look like mailboxes, he should really stay in bed this morning and watch from afar “
Others have called on the show to apologize for letting him appear in the first place.
The third shouted: “Wow!! How can you let Leo come here and agree with Boris and say what he did to Muslim women! #gmb need to apologize for leaving him on”
