Roman Kemp show slammed and receives Ofcom complaints
Last week, the Capital Breakfast Show came under fire for mocking a small business.
The business in question was Chocolate Moments. It has gone viral recently thanks to its “Bar of Crisps” – which is essentially a chocolate bar full of crisps.
Roman, former BBC Radio 1 DJ Chris Stark, 36, and new This Morning host Sian Welby, 37, questioned the business’ legitimacy and mocked its website.
Sian said that she had found the website on her Instagram and commented that she thought it had been a “scam”.
“Has it already failed? Is it bankruptcy already?” she asked. “It’s not been as popular.”
“It says it’s all out of stock. Do you think it’s ever been in stock?” she then asked, checking the website.
They also then joked that the website looked like it had been “made by a child” and that the business was probably being run from a garage.
Fans slam Roman Kemp and Capital Breakfast
The woman who owns the business, Maria Antoniou, shared a clip of herself on Instagram listening in shock to the disparaging comments made by the Capital Breakfast team.
“So many have said how triggering the comments, cackling, and bullying behaviour is so I’ve added in a warning,” she captioned the post.
“So keen to hear your thoughts on the utter annihilation of my website, phone number, email…!!!” she then added.
Maria’s followers were up in arms over the comments.
“I think you need to apologize to the lady behind the @chocolate_momentsuk who started this incredible small business and the I must say the chocolate is amazing maybe you should try it before you laugh and be horrible. Kindness,” one person wrote.
