“Always a flag, Munchetty remarked. “Always a flag. They had the picture of the Queen there in Westminster office – I’m assuming.”
After BBC Breakfast, Naga liked anti-Conservative tweets including, “The flag s*****s will be up in arms”.
She also liked a post which said: “Should be done every time the Tories roll out one of the talking head ministers”.
Last night, the BBC star apologised and tweeted: “I ‘liked’ tweets today that were offensive in nature about the use of the British flag as a backdrop in a government interview this morning. I have since removed these ‘likes’.
“This do not represent the views of me or the BBC. I apologise for any offence taken. Naga.”
Following the presenter’s apology, a BBC source told The Sun that bosses “reminded” Munchetty of her “responsibilities” over impartially concerns.
