The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury has stirred a lot of controversy after paying tribute to Sir Winston Churchill.
Several anti-racist demonstrations have taken place, with the various statues of Churchill being ‘defaced’ with graffiti sprayed all over them. Sir Winston Churchill was known for his extremist thoughts when it comes to a person’s race. He had mentioned it many times in the past that the White race is superior and the black race is less superior in what he called ‘Social Darwinism’.
After the recent murder of George Floyd protests have taken place all over the world. Despite Churchill’s shrewd comments, Fury pointed out that it was because of him that the United Kingdom is in peace. He also asked Prime minister Boris Johnson to ‘grow a pair’ and stop people from destroying the statue.
