Dozens of broadcasters ask the BBC to reverse its ruling over Naga Munchetty’s Donald Trump remarks.
C’mon BBC. This is ridiculous. It’s perfectly understandable why she said what she did. https://t.co/UV1J3MsnTl

Telling people to "go back" to "places from which they came" is racist. Naga Munchetty stated a fact.
She shared experiences of racism she's suffered. That can’t be at odds with any editorial guidelines.
The BBC must explain this astonishing decision.https://t.co/VTtvJRJAgR

Bizarre. 'Go back to your own country', 'go home' said to a citizen of same country is what then? It was pretty clear whenever it'd been said to me. Thought @BBCNaga had to give her honest opinion when asked & did in a reasonable way. BBC News https://t.co/MvHLZA4Zb9

Excellent piece from @marcusryder “Go back to where you can from” was the soundtrack to many of our childhoods. Naga was asked her opinion as someone who lived it and then gaslighted as The Troublemaker. Yep. Lived that one too. With you @BBCNaga 💪🏽 https://t.co/qB6wxdu35A
