CHANNEL 4’s Jon Snow has faced backlash for having an on air rant whilst covering the Brexiteer rallies in Westminster saying “I’ve never seen so many white people in one place“.
The broadcaster, 71, covering the event live from parliament Square said “We’ve just got these pictures in which were taken nearby.
“Police are now wearing riot gear. Police dogs are patrolling. The mood has changed.
“We cannot confirm whether any arrests have been made.
“It has been the most extraordinary day. A day which has seen… I’ve never seen so many white people in one place.
“It’s an extraordinary story — there are people everywhere, there are crowds everywhere.”
Pretty much immediately after this, social media users took to twitter to air their thoughts on what the broadcaster had bizarrely just said.
With one user saying
“What a stupid comment.
“You’re literally looking to vilify anyone that you don’t agree with and make out this is about or race or something. Poor journalism, very poor.”
Another user commented “I cannot believe I have just heard this! Channel 4 News and Jon Snow sink to a new low!”
