Alexander Bard is a thing of the past in the Swedish tv station TV 4.
It is a matter of fact, after the 59-year-old host and multi-artist was a little too talkative on Twitter at the weekend.
Here he wrote, among other things: If black life means so much, so do black lives taking care together, read a lot, go to work, earn his own money instead of being dependent on the welfare system.
If black lives want to matter, then black lives get their fucking shit together, study hard, go to work, make their own money instead of depend on welfare, stop lying, get out of prison, and become heroes instead of self-appointed victims for the world to laugh to. That matters!— Alexander Bard (@Bardissimo) June 13, 2020
It has led to strong reactions from many sides in the Swedish society, and it helps well enough not on the TV 4 in the first place stated that it stood for his own account, and that the station should not be held responsible for his personal views in his spare time.
