Quite shocking to see the story about a tv anchor mocking Prince George for taking and enjoying ballet classes. What is more shocking perhaps is the degree of acceptance that is given to Lara Spencer’s apology. It is almost as cheap and insulting as the original joke.
Her joke is sexist, probably homophobic, certainly arrogant, bullying and insensitive. It is also at the expense of a child. But it took a day or two before she and her tv station cronies realised how crass and wrong it was. Is this a reflection of the new spirit that Trump has ushered into the US? it is deeply disappointing.
