Jungle Camouflage Is Racist
The British Army has apologised after posting an image of a soldier with a “blacked up” face on social media.
The Telegraph reports that the image, published on the Army’s official Twitter account, showed a soldier wearing black face-paint as part of his camouflage in a jungle.
As a point of fact, the face paint is actually a combination of dark green/black (see the soldier's arms), not black.
The tweet, which was swiftly deleted, was described as “stupid” and “racist” by outraged social media users, while anti-racism campaigners said the force should feel "embarrassed".
An Army spokesman later said they could see how the tweet "may have been misinterpreted" and apologised.
The image was captioned with the words: “Being a soldier in the jungle requires a robust sense of humour”.
Shall soldiers only wear politically correct camouflage then, even if it increases the risk that they will be shot?
