itsnotoutthere Posted December 14, 2022 #1 Share Posted December 14, 2022 (edited) Gary Lineker has branded the United States “an extraordinarily racist country” as the BBC became embroiled in a new row over the former England striker-turned-TV presenter's political pronouncements. Lineker had already angered current World Cup hosts Qatar by voicing concerns over its human rights record. The Qataris hit back over what they said was the BBC's “very racist” coverage of the tournament. Lineker responded by doubting whether Qatar's Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy had even been watching the corporation’s output and doubled down on his denial of accusations he had failed to engage with them before criticising the event live on air. But in showing he was prepared to do the same with the next World Cup he took a swipe at co-hosts the United States, calling it “an extraordinarily racist country”. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/entertainment/tv/gary-lineker-calls-us-extraordinarily-racist-country-and-reignites-row-between-bbc-and-qatar/ar-AA15efiO?ocid=BingHp01&cvid=c7e4801aa56b41099caf4911bc076d8e Edited December 14, 2022 by itsnotoutthere 1 1 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
