Katie Price upsets viewers after using the N-word twice on This Morning
Katie Price has been criticised by This Morning viewers for saying the N-word twice during her interview.
The reality television star appeared on This Morning today (Wednesday) to promote her anti-bullying campaign and speak about her son Harvey, who has received online abuse for many years for his race, illness and size.
Katie expressed her wish that there would be greater police involvement and punishment for cyber bullies, explaining how all of the people who have attacked her son online have been let go without charges in the past.
Referring to some of the insults that have been thrown at Harvey by online trolls, she said: “Someone called him a black, blind n*****.
“Is that not strong enough to get arrested?”
Hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby agreed with their guest, replying: “Yes, it’s deeply offensive, and people will be offended by the fact it’s been said today.”
The Loose Women panellist later repeated the N-word for a second time, saying: “Calling my son a n***** isn’t acceptable.”
This time, Phillip snapped: “You don’t need to say it again.”
Many viewers took to Twitter to complain about Katie’s language, arguing that her use of the racial slur “ruined her message”.
I know Katie Price son is black but she should not of used the N word loosely like that. Plus #ThisMorning could not even say anything
