The Apprentice star Amy Anzel criticized for teasing homosexual backlash

Probationer star Amy Anzel teased the backlash she received for tweeting a profanity about gay people earlier this week.

Businesswoman is one of the candidates looking for Lord Sugarinvest in this year’s BBC series.

Soon after the first episode aired, Anzel attracted several members of the LGBTQ+ community.

After asking her followers for recommendations on places to visit on Canal Street, Manchester’s gay club district, Anzel posted a homophobic tweet.

She deleted the tweet after being criticized, and later shared an apologetic statement, writing: “As soon as it was pointed out, I took it down. It was taken from a conversation – and I’m repeating what my friends are saying. I really don’t mean malice with it, it means with love. ”

However, in the latest episode of Probationeraired on Thursday (February 3), Anzel shed light on the controversy on social media.

Sharing a photo of herself wearing an orange jumpsuit, she wrote: “I am condemned by gay twitter and mainstream media for accidentally posting a derogatory acronym for the word homosexual… ”

The next tweet sparked another backlash, with one follower saying: “This pretty clearly shows you don’t really care.”

“Sometimes it’s best to just be quiet for a while,” said Twitter user @tweeting_keith, with @nath_ac97 adding: “Maybe try being an active ally.”

The Independent have reached out to a representative for the BBC series for comment.
