Lord Suger Called Senegalese Players Beach Salesmen by damiloladuke: 1:13pm On Jun 20
The host of the BBC show ‘The Apprentice’, Lord Suger, has come under severe criticism for referring to Senegal’s football heroes as people selling sunglasses and handbags on beaches.’ on Twitter.

Although in his opinion he actually meant that they were ‘multi-tasking resourceful chaps’, but it did not go down well with social media users who accused him of being racist.

He tweeted with the picture of the team, some handbags, and sunglasses that he recognised some of these guys from the beach in Marbella.

Sugar has since deleted the tweet.

See some of the responses:

When racism becomes acceptable and "funny".

Always call it out.

Disgusting by @Lord_Sugar and not even an apology but tries to defend it.

Another person tweeted:

A tweet about Senegalese players working on the beach is causing outrage and everyone is disgusted.. Yet a tweet about Polish people cleaning cars gets 10,000+ RT’s

Funny how stereotyping and racism only applies to certain races isn’t it? We’re all bleeping human! @Lord_Sugar

And this:

Why did you delete the tweet if you thought it was so funny @Lord_Sugar ? I saved it for you. Maybe there is an issue with your Twitter app. Here you go! Glad to be of service, you racist cunt!

Dear Lord Sugar,

I guess you didn't get the memo but here's your personal copy.

Only Africans are permitted to be discriminatory to each other, we're the only ones who can call ourselves skull miners, developers, afonjas and zombies and get away with it. We're the only ones allowed to be xenophobic because our skin is black.

Once your skin is white, you're racist and anything you say will be used against you in the court of SM.

Yours faithfully,
Scarlet

Black people are too sensitive, if these were white Polish players he said this to, it will be perfectly fine. Y'all need to stop this racist crap, develop your continent, end corruption and reduce the barbaric crimes and maybe the rest of the world will respect Africans.

But he said they were resourceful chaps in the next sentence

Why is that being ignored?

Anyway he has deleted the tweet: let's hope some people get on with their lives

Most of us haven't been to the said beach before, is it only blacks that sell shade and bags there? Let those who's been there answer, If no, we should tighten our humor game. Everything isn't about racism.
