Angela Gibbons probably didn’t think that commenting on a Facebook photo of Prince George of Cambridge would get her in hot water at work.
But it did.
According to The Guardian, The British Council — where Gibbons serves as Head of Global Estates — is now investigating her for what she wrote on a photo of the three-year-old monarch, which had been captioned (by somebody else): “I know he’s only two years old, but Prince George already looks like a fucking dick head.”
“White privilege. That cheeky grin is the innate knowledge he’s royal, rich, advantaged and will never know any difficulties or hardships in life,” Gibbons wrote. “Let’s find photos of 3yo Syrian refugee children and see if they look alike, eh?”
The Guardian reports Gibbons posted additional comments after her first received heavy negative criticism.
“I’m sound in my socialist, atheist and republican opinions,” she added. “I don’t believe the royal family have [sic] any place in a modern democracy, least of all when they live on public money. That’s privilege and it needs to end.”
“The British Council is the UK’s international organization for cultural relations and educational opportunities,” reads the charity’s website. “We are on the ground in six continents and over 100 countries, bringing international opportunity to life, every day.”
“[Gibbons’] comment was made on a private social media account. It has absolutely no connection to the British Council and does not represent the views of the British Council,” TBC said of the incident in a statement. “That said, we expect the highest standards of our staff and we will be investigating the matter further.”
