Charlene White repudiates racist trolls and reveals why she wears NO Poppy on TV

Charlene was plundered by racist and sexist abuses after she decided not to wear the poppy on the canvas.

Commemorative poppies are worn to commemorate those who lost their lives in the war and sold by the Royal British Legion to support those currently serving in the armed forces and their families.

TV channel ITV News, whose family has served in the armed forces, struck the stream of abuse it gets every year by declaring its position.

Charlene tweeted a link to an article she wrote for ITV News in 2014. He wrote, "I'm wearing a poppy out of the screen – I donate to the British Legion – I'm from an army family – c ** t or p *** k. "

The article clearly explains the position of the 38-year-old.

"I support and support a number of charities, and due to impartiality rules, I can not visually support them all in presenting news programs," she said.

"These include things like a Red Ribbon for World AIDS Day or a Purple Ribbon for the Colon Cancer Awareness Month.

"These and many other charities are doing great things in the UK, but I can not show them on the screen.

"I feel uncomfortable supporting only one charity in front of the other, the Royal British Legion, but I support my colleagues who choose to wear the poppy on the canvas."

"It's very different in my private life.

"I wear a poppy on Armistice Day – in fact, I wear one that my friend Jen's mother knitted for me a few years ago."

The broadcaster further stated that her family served in the armed forces – her father in the RAF and her uncle in the army.

Charlene says she talked to both about her decision and they decided to support her.

"Of course, I do not expect everyone to support it," she said.

"However, it is always important to remember what my family, your family and millions of people have been fighting for generations: the right to vote and the right to freedom of expression and expression."
