Boris Johnson Refuses To Apologize For Racist Comments On Muslim Women

Boris Johnson Refuses To Apologize For Racist Comments On Muslim Women British Prime Minister Boris Johnson refused to apologize for Islamophobic comments he wrote in 2018 comparing Muslim women in burqas to letterboxes and bank robbers. Member of Parliament Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi was applauded in the House of Commons Wednesday for demanding an apology from Johnson over an article he wrote for The Daily Telegraph last year. Johnson’s column called a Danish ban on burqas “heavy-handed,” but said it was ridiculous that Muslim women “choose to go around looking like letterboxes” and suggested women wearing burqas look like “bank robbers.” Johnson, however, refused to apologize, arguing his column actually defended Muslim women’s rights.

“Well with a body like that, it’s a guy. That’s a guy,” Medley said in the video.

“With a body like that it’s a guy, you’re absolutely right, Morgan added.

Petty apparently overheard the comments, and described them later as “disheartening and disappointing.”

“I was really excited to do the fashion show for Garo Sparo for New York Fashion Week because he was using models of diversity, and I knew they were filming the ‘Housewives of New York’ and I knew they were front row and literally, as I was walking down the runway, I heard them making these statements,” Petty told Page Six in a statement.

Shawn Mendes says sorry for 'racially insensitive comments'

Shawn Mendes says sorry for 'racially insensitive comments' Pop star Shawn Mendes has apologised for previously making "racially insensitive comments".

“My philosophy is that people can’t choose their sexual orientation. They can’t choose their gender identity,” she continued. “They can’t choose or not choose to have a disability or a mental illness or even their race, but things people can choose to do is not to be rude and cruel to people over things they have no control over.”

In a different video, Morgan can be heard asking Medley, “Who is that?” as “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alum Miz Cracker walks by. “Oh, that’s a guy, right?” she continued.

Medley and Morgan since apologized in a joint statement to Page Six, and cited their history of advocating for LGBTQ causes. Morgan famously has claimed she has raised “millions” for the LGBTQ community on the long-running reality TV show.

“We have a history as longstanding supporters of the LGBTQ community in many ways and apologize for our offensive comments at the fashion show,” the two told Page Six Style.
