‘Actor Laurence Fox said this morning that ‘woke’ people are ‘fundamentally racist’ and blasted the singer Lily Allen for telling him to stick to acting.
Fox – who railed against identity politics on Thursday’s Question Time – told Julia Hartley-Brewer on Talk Radio that the country is tired of being told it’s racist.
The host had asked him about Harry and Meghan‘s decision to step down and what he thought of claims made by some of their supporters that the Duchess faced unfair scrutiny due to her skin colour.
As he told her that he believed Britain is a tolerant nation, he said it was hurtful to tell people who initially welcomed Meghan that their subsequent criticism was racially motivated.
We’re tired of being told we’re racist by the people we pay for and support,’ he said on the show.
Fox also discussed his recent spat with Lily Allen, who told him to ‘stick to acting mate’ after a Question Time appearance in which he accused an academic of racism for bringing up his skin colour.’
