Actors’ union Equity apologises for branding Laurence Fox a ‘disgrace’ over Question Time comments

‘The actors’ union Equity has issued an apology to Laurence Fox after a social media post from its minority ethnic committee branded the Lewis star a “disgrace.”

All members of Equity’s Race Equality Committee have since resigned as committee members, saying that felt they had “no choice” but to do so.

Equity’s original post came after Fox claimed that a Question Time audience member was being “racist” when she labelled him a “white privileged male” during a discussion about media coverage of Meghan Markle.

When academic Rachel Boyle said that some sections of the media had treated the Duchess of Sussex in a “racist” manner, Fox, 41, claimed that the UK is “the most tolerant, lovely country in Europe” and said that the “charge of racism” was “starting to get boring now.”
