Davina McCall’s’save our BBC’ appeal before a charity event has enraged fans.
When TV personality Davina McCall asked people to sign a divisive’save our BBC’ petition last year, she was attacked by angry Twitter users.
Last year, Davina McCall enraged Twitter users by pleading with them to “rescue our BBC” on the social media platform.
She enlisted the aid of her 2.7 million followers, asking them to sign a petition requesting Boris Johnson and his party to “end the political onslaught on our BBC.”
“I’ve just joined the petition calling on Boris Johnson to end his attack on the BBC,” she wrote. It’s a thinly veiled evasion of responsibility. Please sign and spread this petition today.”
Angry followers raced to the comments section to express their displeasure.
One snarled: “It isn’t “my” BBC. It’s cr*p, and it employs pompous left-wing wokes who are overpaid and overpriced.” “Here we go!” exclaimed a second. Celebrities securing their big fat paychecks… f*** off, McCall!” “I want celebrity culture abolished along with the BBC,” a third swooped in, enraged.
