Charlene White on not wearing a poppy on screen
The British newsreader Charlene White was facing online abuse for not wearing a poppy on air. Poppies are worn to commemorate those people who lost their lives during warfare.
It is sold by the Royal British Legion to support the people who are serving in the armed forces and their families. She explained herself in response to the criticism she was facing. Similarly, she receives racist and sexist abuse for her decision to not wear a poppy.
“I wear a poppy off screen – I donate to the British Legion – I come from a forces family – I’m really not a b***h, c**t or p***k.”
Likewise, she shared a link to an article she wrote for ITV News where she explained her position. She explained,
“I support and am patron of a number of charities, and due to impartiality rules, I am not allowed to visually support them all whilst presenting news programmes.”
“Both these and many more charities do great things in the UK, but I’m not allowed to give them exposure on screen.”
Finally, she concluded saying,
“So I feel uncomfortable supporting just one charity above all others, namely The Royal British Legion, but I fully support my colleagues who do choose to wear the poppy on screen.”
