Television cook Lorraine Pascale has revealed she was the victim of a racist rant by a country pub landlord.
The presenter of Baking Made Easy was buying a packet of nibbles at the bar when the man made his vile outburst.
Lorraine tweeted: ‘Landlord said to me all ‘niggers’ should ‘go home & were not welcome. He said I could stay though as his wife liked my cakes.’
The 40-year-old BBC2 host added: ‘I looked at him with my best bitchy LP glare, paid for my pork scratchings and walked right out.
‘It’s just about seeing the funny side of it I think. Laugh it off and feel sorry for them.’
Last month, Lorraine called in police after being abused by a racist American Twitter user @spiderleman and a year ago she complained to the Met over a slur by a user in Britain.
The former model and mother-of one claimed that the social networking site in the U.S. did not stop racists opening new accounts every time they were shut down.
She is quoted in the Daily Mirror: ‘I have been on the receiving end of some pretty horrible abuse for two months.
‘I’ve tried to stop it and been told because the person responsible is in the U.S. there’s nothing I can do. That’s very frustrating and while Twitter UK have been incredibly helpful, I don’t understand why Twitter U.S. can’t do more.
‘If it’s happening to me it’s almost certainly happening to others who are even less able to do anything about it.’
In November last year, Ms Pascale exposed a racist by copying his rant and posting it on her Twitter page, with the sender’s tag.
She tweeted: ‘Unpleasant tweet to get this morning coming right up. A very sad state of affairs.’
She then repeated the abuse: ‘Don’t really need you telling us how to force feed kids you fucking dumb nigger. Get off the TV cunt and know your place.’
The racist received complaints from angry tweeters.
One called the insulter ‘absolute scum’, adding: ‘You shouldn’t talk to Lorraine or anyone like that. Talent earns its place at the table.’
Another wrote: ‘Hope you get what is coming to you.’ A further tweet said: ‘You should be reported to Twitter for racism.’
Ms Pascale, born to West Indian parents and adopted by a white family at 18 months, said: ‘I am hurt, shocked and saddened by the comments this person has made against me.
‘Sadly, this is not the first time racist comments have been directed at me on Twitter. However, it is by far the worst example. I have therefore decided to report it to the police and speak out.
‘I do this for myself and countless others who have to deal with this kind of abuse on a daily basis and are powerless to stop it.’
Ms Pascale began modelling when spotted at a Devon boarding school at 16. She became a face of Donna Karan and Versace and was the first black British model to be on the cover of American Elle.
