Reactions when the BBC presenter 'ordered' to delete the tweet of himself with the Welsh flag by TV bosses


Huw Edwards said he was “ordered” to delete a tweet of himself with a Welsh flag by his BBC bosses.
It comes after Naga Munchetty apologized for liking the ‘offensive’ tweets on the video call background of a government minister with the Union flag.

The BBC Breakfast presenter, 46, said she had since deleted the likes and they did not represent the broadcaster’s views.

Munchetty had been the subject of criticism from some online following an interview on Thursday in which she and her co-host Charlie Stayt called attention to a large flag and a picture of the Queen visible behind Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick.

At the end of the interview, Stayt said, “I think your flag is not the standard size, based on the government interviews measurements.

Jenrick

“I think it’s just a little small, but it’s really your department. It’s just a thought.

Mr Jenrick, who was speaking by video call from Westminster, did not respond.

When the camera returned to the studio, Munchetty was seen trying to stifle her laughter.

She added: “There is always a flag. They did, however, have the queen’s photo. In the Westminster office, I assume.

Munchetty later apologized for liking a series of tweets referring to their interview and the flag.

She wrote on Twitter: “I ‘liked’ today’s tweets which were offensive in nature about the use of the British flag as a backdrop in a government interview this morning. I have since deleted these “likes”.

“It does not represent my opinion or that of the BBC. I apologize for any offense committed. ”

Huw Edwards

Veteran and proud Welsh news anchor Huw Edwards took to Twitter and posted the Welsh flag behind him and wrote: ‘Flags are now mandatory – very happy with my new backdrop for BBC News at ten o’clock.

It sounded a bit funny, but it was not shared by the bosses at the BBC. He later tweeted, “Eviscerated. My Pro-flag Wales tweet was reduced to its peak. By order. But he will come back to tmw for rugby – by popular demand. In the meantime, enjoy this gorgeous flag – one of my favorites. ”
