British Council boss sacked for calling Prince George symbol of 'white privilege’ denied payout
Angela Gibbins was fired from her job in August 2016 after posting comments on Facebook
A former senior manager at the British Council who was fired for branding Prince George a symbol of “white privilege” has been denied compensation.
Angela Gibbins, the former head of global estates at the organisation which promotes British culture overseas, was dismissed from her job in August 2016 after comments she made on Facebook appeared in The Sun newspaper.
A photo of Prince George was posted by the band the Dub Pistols on its Facebook page, with the caption: “I know he’s only 2 years old, but Prince George already looks like a f***ing d***head.”
The band added: “Too much?”
Underneath the image, Ms Gibbins commented: “White privilege. That cheeky grin is the (already locked-in) innate knowledge that he is royal, rich, advantaged and will never know *any* difficulty or hardships in life.
“Let’s find photos of 3yo Syrian refugee children and see if they look alike, eh?”
Ms Gibbins believed her comments were only visible to her Facebook friends.
Although she was not responsible for the obscene remark about Prince George next to the photo, her comments provoked widespread criticism of the charity as well as calls for Ms Gibbins to be fired.
