BBC weather favourite Carol Kirkwood has been slammed by the National Assembly Against Racism this week for flagrantly referring to clouds as 'white', 'black', and perhaps worst of all, 'low level black'.
NAAR representative Mohammed Azam said he nearly choked on his Frosties on Friday morning as he watched Kirkwood present the forecast, and has lodged a formal complaint to the BBC.
'Completely out of order, this is,' fumed Azam as he spoke to our reporter, 'and a blatant disregard for decades of progress on racism. How on earth can a cloud defend itself on these kind of slurs? Well, I promise you, I will defend and protect every cloud from this evil woman.'
The BBC has declined to comment on the matter, in an effort to prevent a further storm, however Kirkwood did briefly speak to us on her way into the studio this morning.
'I am deeply regretful about what I have done,' whimpered the star, clearly struggling to suppress her emotions. 'Hopefully one day the nation will find it in their hearts to forgive me, and believe me, I am suffering for my sins. I can't even look at a cloud without bursting into tears.'
We were unable to find a cloud of either colour willing to comment.
