BORIS JOHNSON’S fame-hungry father sparked outrage on social media today after he said it was “good” that all the people involved in a plane crash yesterday in Turkey were Turkish nationals.
Stanley Johnson, who recently appeared on I’m a Celebrity, made the comments on Channel 5’s Wright Stuff show this morning.
Twitter user Wendy Woo said she couldn’t believe presenter Matthew Wright let him off just after speaking about racism.
“Challenge him FGS! Racism has no place. Apologise!” she wrote.
Gaynor Hudson agreed, saying: “That’s right Matthew let’s just ignore Stanley’s blatantly racist remark.”
Another user named Mrs Shaw wrote: “How on earth can Stanley Johnson make light of the aircraft going off the runway and commenting on how good that they were all Turkish? Racist fool.”
Yesterday, a plane carrying 168 people skidded of the runway of a Turkish coastal airport and fell into the Black Sea. No-one on board was hurt during the incident.
