Numerous people have taken to Twitter to voice their outrage towards Adjoa Andoh‘s views during ITV‘s coverage of King Charles on Saturday.
One commenter slammed Ms Andoh’s comments as ‘ridiculous’, tweeting: ‘How can she get away with that? Anyone of white colour would have to make a public apology.’
