People are disgusted with Marco Pierre White Jr’s tweet about the Parsons Green explosion that happened this morning.
The explosion is being treated as a terror attack, and confirmed that an “improvised explosive device” was detonated on a Tube train during this morning’s rush hour at 8.20am.
In a tweet, that is now deleted, Marco wrote: “Parsons Green tube station this morning was targeted by terrorists, this is why I don’t take the tube #TheRichDontDie.”
People were not happy with his comment:

He has since apologised, saying “I apologise for my tweet this morning, it was insensitive & ignorant. My thoughts & prayers are with those affected & injured by the attack.”
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, senior national coordinator for counter terrorism, this morning declared the explosion a terrorist incident.
