Lord Alan Sugar faces backlash for ‘misjudged’ tweet about Ian Wright
Lord Alan Sugar has come below fireplace from his followers after sharing a tweet mocking Ian Wright’s suit during a TV appearance.
The businessman, 73, had been watching the Arsenal vs Chelsea football match, which Ian was commentating on for the BBC, when he shared a tweet about what the former footballer was wearing.
Lord Sugar tweeted: ‘That is one hell of a suit @IanWright0 has on. A bit too darkish don’t you assume. He might be in camouflage on a seashore.’
Followers had been fast to reply that the tweet sounded racist, posting: ‘That is extremely misjudged. And if I’m sincere, it’s out of order. I used to look as much as you.’
Others added; ‘That is improper Sir Alan on so many ranges’ and ‘Have you ever actually stated this….. Jesus wept’.
A few of Lord Sugar’s followers shared screenshots of Ian’s camel-coloured go well with to attempt to clarify the ‘joke’, saying that he meant the outfit would camouflage with the seashore.
They posted: ‘what was the “a bit too darkish” sentence about? too darkish for what? though sure it’s in regards to the go well with being sand colored, he purposefully made the tweet ambiguous to antagonise individuals. don’t be dense.’
Others added: ‘I hadn’t seen the go well with Ian Wright was sporting. Turned on the TV and now understood the joke. Go well with is near the identical color as sand. – not a racist joke as I initially thought. Context actually is every thing’.
Some defended the poorly-worded tweet, including: ‘Ian Wright is sporting a darkish sand colored go well with. I can’t stand Sugar however we actually want to have a look at issues for what they’re, not what it’s suspected to be’ and ‘I wager half of those replies haven’t seen his go well with.’
Ian had been co-presenting the BBC protection of the Arsenal vs Chelsea sport alongside Gary Lineker and Ashley Cole, with all the boys sitting a secure distance away from one another and the stadium being empty of followers to adjust to social distancing.
