Fat White Family have responded to claims they made a racial slur on their social media channels.

Far Out reported this morning that the band made a sarcastic comment in relation to the shocking comments made by Boris Johnson. Johnson, who is the foreign secretary, said that the municipality of Sirte could become “the next Dubai—the only thing they’ve got to do is clear the dead bodies away and then they’ll be there”and is being told to resign from his role.

In response, Fat Whites shared a Guardian article on the subject with the caption:  “ONLY A PEPPERING OF SAND NIGGER CARCASSES TO SHIFT AND WE’VE GOT OURSELVES A NEW DUBAI GENTLEMEN! ONWARDS!!!”.

Following criticism, the band have responded.
