Not wise by Danny Baker. Bit of an own goal and gaff.

To give the benefit of the doubt, he was probably thinking about Chaz & his offsprings' facial resemblence to simians, especially in the ears (though why any of that that would be of relevance to Harry, god knows), but it was massively politically/socially tone-deaf for all the reasons posted above.

Or, given the Millwall connection, be could just be a bigot.

Anyway, regardless of this, not at all sorry he's been sacked - couldn't stand his radio show, so at least there's a (small) chance that something listenable will be put in place

Am assuming he didnt automatically make the connection at the time.
The thing about Baker is that he is a quick talking wise-cracker who often gobs off before he has engaged his brain. I assume in his haste to be the funniest man alive (something that he seems desperate to be) he couldnt wait to use his stock chimp image (he has used this gag many times before for 'elite' babies), and sent the tweet out before putting two and two and two together.
As someone else has said, it doesnt make sense that he knew and it doesnt make sense that he didnt.

He's probably just an old piss head these days.

I was most staggered by reading this .

I genuinely thought he was dead. Are they sure that's he's not.? I could have sworn he'd died.
