Newsreader Loses His Job of 30 Years For Quoting Shakespeare at a Black Person

Passage referred to “angry ape,” but had previously been directed at a white person.

Published

Veteran British newsreader Alastair Stewart has lost his job of 30 years after quoting a Shakespeare passage to a black man that included the word “ape,” despite the fact that he had previously directed the same tweet to a white person.

Broadcaster ITN said Stewart had made “errors of judgment” is his use of social media that breached editorial guidelines.

The controversy was over a Twitter response Stewart sent to a black man in which he quoted a passage from Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure;

Than the soft myrtle: but man, proud man,
Dressed in a little brief authority,
Most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
His glassy essence, like an angry ape,
Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven
As make the angels weep; who, with our spleens,
Would all themselves laugh mortal.

“Just had an @ITV newsreader referring to me as an ape with the cover of Shakespeare,” tweeted Martin Shapland in response. “Measure for measure, Alistair is a disgrace.”

However, another Twitter user pointed out that Stewart had used the same passage before and directed towards a white person.

“It was a misjudgement which I regret,” said Stewart.

The host has been working with ITV since 1980 and started fronting the news nine years later.

That means he’s lost a position that lasted 40 years after a single controversy over a tweet that wasn’t even intended to be racist.

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.
