TT 2019 - Megathread

On the eve of the TT, word gets to me that Manx Radio TT commentary legend and all round TT impresario Jo Pack has landed in a bit of hot water. I believe she has done a “Danny Baker”. 

I don’t want my TT to be distracted by this dreadful sideshow. 

Indeed - she posted a Twitter pic of the Queen with a dark skinned child with red hair and a crown and some laughing emoji's and got called out for it - including by Neil Hodgson (whom by nature of his job has many followers and therefore visible to thousands) she tried to defend herself and essentially looked like a bigoted self obsessed arsehole - which is pretty accurate.

Is she even on twitter now, it looks like her account is closed down, shame really i liked hearing about her, she comes across very well especially at TT.

I thought the Isle of Man had a fairly conservative population. Why are people getting butthurt and acting like snowflakes over some lame joke?

I'm not sure but I think Twitter includes people from outside of the Isle of Man?

It was a pretty stupid thing to do. It was incredibly racist, quite way she didn’t think people would kick off is confusing.

Yes unbelievably in this day and age it’s considered not PC to take the piss out of mixed race children. I know it probably spoils the fun for people like you but there you go.

But why would they be interested in a joke shared by a radio presenter from some backwater island in the middle of nowhere?

I live here and hadn't even heard of her.
