‘BBC Breakfast’ Host Naga Munchetty Slams Racist And Sexist Trolls As ‘Idiots’

'You can’t waste your energy on idiots.'

BBC Breakfast’ host Naga Munchetty has opened up about the racist and sexist abuse she endures and branded the perpetrators “idiots”.

The journalist, who hosts the Beeb’s early morning show three days a week, slammed the trolls who bombard her with vile comments on social media.

Meanwhile, Naga insists “none of the presenters care” where they sit on the ‘BBC Breakfast’ sofa, after producers came under fire for putting a less experienced male presenter on the left, which is considered the more senior position.

Earlier this year former ‘Countryfile’ presenter Miriam O’Reilly said it reflected “deep-rooted misogyny” that men had more “gravitas” in an audience’s view.
