Bigotry News: Extraordinary pictures of Richard Littlejohn surfaced on the internet today as the Daily Mail columnist continued to fight accusations of bullying transgender teacher Lucy Meadows.
After Meadows committed suicide last week, the Mail has been inundated with appeals to sack Littlejohn for attacking her in his column.
The photographs, posted anonymously on various websites including thedailymail.com, have become a viral sensation. Both Littlejohn and editor Paul Dacre say they are ‘outraged’.
“These private pictures of Richard in one of my bras, taken at home while preparing for a fancy dress party, which show his lighter side and that he is in no way bigoted against the transgender community, are nothing to do with us.”
“The fact that they have surfaced now is not part of any scheme to deflate the negative publicity in a cunning, internet-savvy way.”
“Richard sticks by what he said: kids are too young to understand a man wearing a dress telling them what to think. This country is an absolute mess as it is. Personally I blame the decline in church attendance.”
