Danny Baker has accused the BBC of 'throwing him under the bus' after he was fired from his BBC Radio 5 Live role over a racially insensitive tweet he made about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's new son.
Following the news that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had welcomed their first child together, Baker posted a now-deleted tweet captioned 'royal baby leaves hospital' alongside a photo of a chimpanzee in a suit.
The presenter apologised for the post but was later fired, and now Baker has hit back at the broadcaster in his first interview since being sacked, calling the BBC's actions "weaselly".
"The BBC suddenly decides they are going to throw us under the bus. That's the thing that stings," Baker told James O'Brien on his LBC radio show.
