The British Council has launched an investigation of one of its senior officials after she called Prince George “the face of white privilege.”
Angela Gibbins took to social media and said a smiling photo of the young prince displayed his “innate knowledge that he’s royal, rich and advantaged,” RT reports.
“Prince George already looks like a f***ing d***head,” she commented on the Facebook photo.
She continued her ill-advised social media rant, writing: “Let’s find photos of 3yo Syrian refugee children and see if they look alike, eh?”
“You are a total idiot Angela,” another user replied, “to look at the picture of a child and be filled with nothing but hatred for them. You are a disgrace to humanity.”
Gibbins, 52, is reportedly the head of global estates at the council that aims to promote the UK and the English language in more than 100 countries.
“This comment was made on a private social media account. It has absolutely no connection to the British Council and does not represent the views of the British Council,” a spokesperson said.
“That said, we expect the highest standards of our staff and we will be investigating the matter further.”
