Dan’s words come after video footage of violence taking place on Bridge Street was shared online yesterday.
Today, Dan decided to speak up about the situation on his Twitter and Instagram pages as he claimed he’s had enough of “the shaming”.
Alongside a picture of his dog, the journalist wrote to his 659,000 Twitter followers: “I don’t know about you but I’m tired of the shouting, the pontificating, the shaming, the threats, the whataboutery and the violence.
“Do to others as you would have them do to you,” he added.
This comes after Strictly Come Dancing‘s 2018 winner Stacey Dooley, 33, similarly shared how her heart was “breaking” after the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, 49, shared one of the violent videos which emerged online last night.
It came as the mayor shared a video with the caption: “Everyone who intended to come to BLM protests today but didn’t has reduced the risk of confrontation with these extreme right-wingers, and the spread of COVID19,” to his one million Twitter followers.
He continued to write: “To those in Parliament Square: to prevent further violence and the spread of the virus in our city, please leave now.”
Shortly after Stacey saw the video with her own eyes, the BBC documentary film-maker expressed her thoughts with her 341,000 followers on Twitter.
The BBC favourite shared the Mayor’s statement and additionally announced: “My heart is actually breaking.
“How did we get here?”
Stacey continued to update her followers with more footage of the violence in another tweet which read: “They are behaving like this because black people want equality in 2020.”
However, one Twitter user hit back by replying: “No they’re not these are just thugs.”
Despite their response, the writer persisted to explain her point by adding: “Of course they’re thugs. They’re morons. My point is, imagine feeling deep anger and outrage, because black people, who are sick of being killed, have taken to the streets to exercise their right to protest. They’re pitiful.”
