Yet another media person has come under fire for a racially charged insult of ace tennis star Serena Williams.
Romanian TV Radu Bancie said live on-air, “Serena Williams looks exactly like one of those monkeys at the zoo with the red asses.”
The comment on his B1 TV late evening show, was like a referemce tp baboons, according to MSN.
Bancui has been fined $1,875 by the National Council for Combatting Discrimination (CNCD) who referred to his comments as “extreme racism.” And, there has been a massive outpouring of support for Serena, many calling on Bancie to be fired.
