Radio 1xtra presenter Sideman quit after the BBC’s recent defending of the decision to broadcast the N word in a report about the victim of a racist attack as we reported here. He said in a post on Instagram (see below) that the decision “feels like a slap in the face of our community”. Interestingly a number of other black presenters on 1xtra have shown support for his stance in the comments, and the BBC has received over 18,000 complaints, so we wait to see wait the fallout will be.
