GB ‘free speech’ News had an ironic response to its presenter taking the knee – 11 favourite reactions

Since its mid-June launch, right-leaning free-speech TV channel GB News has been an evolving shambles, with technical glitches, presenters falling for Simpson’s-style comedy name pranks and plummeting ratings.

It recently ran into an unexpected controversy, when presenter Guto Harri shared his respect for the principle of taking the knee against racism – and did it live on air, causing a rash of furious tweets from viewers.

This is what caused the outrage.

GB News deleted their link to the clip, and posted this three-tweet statement.

They didn’t clarify whether Harri still has a job there.

These reactions have it covered.
