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.

UK Police Chief Says Authorities Need to Stop ‘Wasting Time’ Investigating People Being Offended

Public is sick of it.

The Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police has asserted that authorities need to stop ‘wasting time’ investigating people being offended on social media, noting that the public is sick of it.

Chief Constable Stephen Watson made the comments during an interview with the Telegraph.

Watson acknowledged that Greater Manchester Police had “become too assiduous at interpreting some of the rules to mean that if anybody at any time for whatever reason is offended, there somehow needs to be a police record.”

“We’ve got ourselves involved in stuff which is just not a policing matter, we’ve wasted our time as a result and we’ve caused people to question whether, frankly, we know what we’re doing,” the senior officer added.

Likely next Prime Minister Liz Truss has also vowed to put a stop to police investigating social media posts.

However, despite the College of Policing issuing guidance that officers need to focus on real crimes and not interfering in “debates on Twitter,” the practice still continues.

As we highlighted yesterday, a British Army veteran was arrested by police in Aldershot for re-posting a meme on Facebook critical of the LGBT community.

51-year-old Darren Brady was placed in handcuffs by Hampshire Police after being told he had caused someone “anxiety” online.

People in the UK are routinely arrested for posting ‘offensive’ tweets and other social media content.

Former police officer James Watts was arrested and given 20 weeks in prison for the ‘crime’ of posting offensive George Floyd memes in private WhatsApp and Facebook group chats.

Meanwhile, car thefts have effectively been legalized in major cities and police say they don’t even have time to investigate two out of three burglaries.
