TV Network Bans Word ‘Uppity’ as Racist After a Single Complaint

Term used to criticize arrogant behavior of Meghan Markle.

Published

on

A TV network in the UK has banned the word “uppity” after a single viewer complained that the term was racist when used to describe Meghan Markle.

The farce began after ITV host Eamonn Holmes criticized the Duchess of Sussex’s attitude when she refused to pose for photographs with fans during her visit to the Wimbledon tennis tournament in July.

“If you have an uppity attitude, you’re only through the door two minutes and suddenly you’re sitting at Wimbledon and your royal protection are saying, ‘No photographs, no photographs!’” Holmes said on his show This Morning.

This prompted one viewer to complain to broadcasting watchdog Ofcom that the term was racist because it was once used by southerners in the 19th century to describe black people in America during the slavery era who didn’t know their place.

However, according to the Collins Dictionary, the term only came into popular use after 1929 and simply means, “inclined to be haughty, arrogant, snobbish.”

According to ITV, Holmes was not reprimanded for the remark but the use of the word was subsequently banned, with a spokesperson for the station commenting, “This was a point of learning for the wider team, not a rebuke.”

Respondents on Twitter slammed the broadcaster for reacting to just a single complaint, with one commenting, “Utterly ridiculous – just shows what the petty-minded little people who run ITV are like – full of PC claptrap.”

Others pointed out that the term has been used in a variety of contexts, including a famous children’s Mr. Men book by Roger Hargreaves called Mr. Uppity.

Amazon Redesigns Logo to Look Less Like Hitler after Complaints

App image vaguely resembled dictator’s mustache.

Amazon was forced to redesign a new logo for its app after Twitter users claimed that the image resembled Adolf Hitler.

Yes, really.

The newly re-worked app logo, which was released in January, featured a cardboard box design with a strip of blue tape on it.

After the launch, Twitter users complained that the image reminded them of the toothbrush mustache worn by the Nazi dictator.

“My parents use Amazon nearly every day,” said Sam Hutchings. “They’re going to be lost for the next few days. When they ask where Amazon’s gone, I’ll tell them to look for the cardboard Hitler…”

Yesterday, people began to notice that the design had been changed, with the blue tape now looking more like a post-it note.

Amazon reportedly made the change back on February 22nd.

The company didn’t acknowledge that it changed the logo due to complaints about it supposedly resembling Hitler, although it seems very likely.

In a vague statement provided to TODAY, the company said, “Amazon is always exploring new ways to delight our customers. We designed the new icon to spark anticipation, excitement, and joy when customers start their shopping journey on their phone, just as they do when they see our boxes on their door step.”

Video: Candace Owens Slams Dems’ “Unbelievably Offensive” Equality Act

“They believe in sameness. Making everybody a carbon copy of the others.”

Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight, author and commentator Candace Owens tore into the Democrats’ ‘Equality Act’, calling it “unbelievably offensive” and “a terrifying agenda that eliminates women.”

The bill, which passed the House last week outlines a framework for dismissing biological differences between men and women.

“I find this to be unbelievably offensive: the idea there is nothing different between men and women,” Owens urged, adding that Democrats “don’t know what equality is. They don’t know what equality means.”

“What they are saying right now is that, LeBron James, when he was at high school, with all his physical prowess, should have been able to say: ‘I no longer identify as a man, I identify as a woman,’ and he should have been allowed to compete against every other woman, and that would have been deemed equal,” Owens emphasised.

“They believe in sameness. Making everybody a carbon copy of the others,” Owens declared, adding “They hate the idea between male, female, girl, boy.”

The best-selling author also said she has been called “a bigot, a hateful individual, a transphobe” for her views, noting that “the left likes to use these pejoratives when you are just speaking common sense.”

Owens comments echo those of President Trump who told the CPAC conference that the ‘integrity’ of women’s sports is under threat from trans athletes, prompting frothing backlash from leftists.

Jewish Family Kicked Off Flight Over Maskless Baby

Passengers claim Frontier Airline staff did celebratory high-fives.

Published

A Hasidic Jewish family says they were kicked off a flight because they refused to make their 18-month-old baby wear a mask, while passengers claimed Frontier Airlines staff performed celebratory high-fives after the incident.

A video of the incident shows the family walking off the plane as other passengers complain, “This is Nazi Germany! “and, “This is gonna go all over the news!”

Despite the policy being that children aged under 2 do not have to wear masks, the Orthodox Jewish Public Affairs Council (OJPAC) says the family were told “to get off because their 18-month-old had no mask.”

After the other passengers started to bitterly complain about the treatment of the family, they too were removed from the plane and the flight was cancelled.

Eyewitnesses said the airlines staff were seen congratulating and “high-fiving each other,” while another allegedly stated, “A job well done to those Jews.”

However, Frontier Airlines put out a statement claiming that the family was removed because adults were refusing to wear masks.

“Members of a large group, including adults, refused to wear masks as flight 2878 was preparing for departure from MIA-LGA. Repeated requests to comply with federal law necessitated their removal from the flight,” the airline declared, adding, “The issue did not stem from a child under 2.”

This claim is contradicted by footage showing the adults wearing masks as they leave the plane as well as testimony from passengers, one of whom asserted, “No adult refused to wear a mask.”

“The only person w/o a mask was a 18 month old. I’m still horrified how you handled it,” they tweeted.

Political commenter Yossi Gestetner also pointed out the absurdity of masks on planes when people remove them for long periods of time when eating or drinking.

“The airplane was loaded corner to corner with ZERO distancing, and for most of the flight many passengers would anyway not wear masks due to eating,” said Gestetner. “So it’s odd that you chose to cancel a flight over an alleged mask issue (not backed by video and disputed by eyewitnesses).”
