Naga Munchetty sparks flag fury after critic claims BBC host made ‘mockery’ of Jubilee | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

The 47-year-old sparked a debate on Twitter after she showcased her attire for the big occasion.

Naga sported a cobalt blue trench coat which she teamed with a yellow scarf.

But one social media critic claimed the presenter had worn colours that reflected the EU flag as opposed to the colours of the Union Jack.

Twitter user, @robertm46577593 fumed: “Naga Munchetty BBC wore the EU colours, during her jubilee broadcast, blue coat and huge yellow neck scarf, no one can tell me, she didn’t do this on purpose, and hence was making a political statement, she was mocking the event and laughing at us all.”

Social media users flocked to comment on the post, as many defended Naga, suggesting she had in fact been wearing the colours in support of Ukraine.

@I_J_Roberts commented: “So did the Queen… what’s your point?”

@Gardening wrote: “Lots of people are wearing yellow and blue at the moment and it has nothing to do with the EU, just an act of solidarity with Ukraine.”

@lumpy_stub remarked: “Ukraine colours? Or maybe not everyone is a nationalist who drapes themselves in flags and political colours every minute of the day.”

@Froache replied: “Loving the Ukraine flag dress code @TVNaga01.”

But @Mikesmi70551938 remarked: “Perhaps British colours might have been more appropriate.”

Taking note of the comment, Naga took the opportunity to hit back at the comment.

She responded to the post on June 2, in view of her 272,000 followers.

Naga penned: “Really @MikeSmi70551938? Thanks for the fashion advice. That was sarcasm.”

Fans flocked to offer their support to the BBC host, as @SteveWa tweeted: “If there’s one person on TV who doesn’t need fashion advice, it’s the always chic Naga.”

@FloatyFrocks wrote: “Thought you looked fab this morning.”

@Carol added: “Naga always looks stylish she really doesn’t need any advice from anyone. Plus she has done an amazing job presenting the Jubilee celebrations.”
