I'm always so genuinely surprised to see this kind of tweets from celebs. Sure they can be racists but at least do it on your finsta or private twitter? Be smart about your racism to protect your interests no? But then again if you are like that you can't be that smart

This month is much better than when everyone was trying to figure out if Jussie Smollett was lying in 2019.

He plays in watford, that's not even bottom of the table of EPL, that's 2nd division, he should worry about that instead of being a bigoted asshole

At first when the image didn't load I thought well a white guy in 2012 maybe he really was ignorant? Good for him for learning and growing.

Pic loaded, then I read, and now I'm like yeah fuck you, mate, go be quiet in a corner.

He should stay off the internet. The whole thing with Leigh and Rochelle is really disheartening. I know that Leigh came up with the concept but I think maybe someone else should be the face of it.
The stuff with Rochelle is just shocking... Channel 4 is already backtracking and saying Candice was not in the running and it was going to be a different show. Just shocking

Yeah, Rochelle was always my favorite member of The Saturdays but let's not pretend she has half of Candice's knowledge and qualifications on the topic, because this is literally what Candice does as a focus of her life.

ETA: The fact Candice offered to co-present with Rochelle & that was denied too is what really sends me, like.. I understand wanting your ~celebrity face, but are you kidding me?

Candice Braithwaite was working with Channel 4 and/or some production company on a documentary that looks at the rate of mortality for black women in the UK. They recently replaced her or announced they were going to have Rochelle Humes present it. Candice has written a book about it and is far more qualified than Rochelle. Seems they just wanted someone more marketable and palatable to present it, which is a bit disheartening.
