British Party Leader Breaks Up With Girlfriend Over Racist Meghan Markle Comments

UK Independence Party leader Henry Bolton has done something pretty rare for politicians lately and put his proverbial money where his mouth was. When a private chat was leaked that exposed his new girlfriend as a racist, he broke up with her. That girlfriend just so happened to be media personality, Jo Marney. The conversation was about Meghan Markle and some of these comments are beyond atrocious.

Take a look at this.

Jo defended her statements as being taken out of context. She even put up a tweet thanking people for being understanding and saying we all make mistakes. Bolton has broken up with her, but also says he is going to stand by her and her family. 

 “At the moment it is obviously quite incompatible to continue the relationship. But, I’m going to be continuing to support her family because Jo is absolutely distraught by this.” 

Twitter's reaction was swift and savage.

Of course, there are other issues and questions this situation brings up. Like the fact that some people think this is all fine...?

We have no words. Hopefully, everyone involved can get it together, though from the looks of it... well... we won't be holding our breath.
