People are not happy...by Kendra Becker
James Haskell has been slammed for posting an “offensive” comment under Jacqueline Jossa’s photo on Instagram.
Earlier this week, the I’m a Celebrity winner shared a photo of herself playing football on the beach, wearing a pair of denim dungarees.
The actress captioned the post: “So @danosborneofficial took this photo of me and I was certain I was going to look like a full on Instagram model in my cute dungarees on the beach.”
“FUMING!! Look at me BUT still I look at this with fond memories of playing football on a beach with my hubby, racing and just being so silly. I can’t help but smile. Fair to say I will never be that girl.”
Jacqueline’s I’m A Celeb co-star James Haskell then sparked fury by commenting: “You look like you are waiting for the sunshine bus and if anyone touches your football you will go mad.”
A “sunshine bus” is an offensive slang term, used to describe transport used by those with special needs or disabilities.
Of course, James’ comment sparked serious backlash, and one person replied: “As a parent of a child with a disability these types of comment are often said to mock a person’s disability and are hugely offensive, experience first hand the struggles and pain of a disabled person or be a family member who hears comments relating to a person they love it’s heartbreaking.”
“So I will happily be on the PC [political correctness] brigade, defending my child and others with disability,” they added.
Another person commented: “Let’s hope you never have children with special needs!”
The comment has since been deleted from Jacqueline’s post.
