Baby Lilybet isn't even a week-old and she's already putting in work...

On Sunday, Meghan and Harry announced the happy news that their new kid had been born and named, Lilibet Diana. Now, in a SANE world, this kind of news deserved to be greeted with a shrug and a 'whatever, good luck to the kid.'

Instead, the last few days have brought a flurry of nonsense that ... not even I anticipated to get this nuts. But maybe this old broad did...

But as of now at least two white women have been fired from their jobs for making racist comments about Lili, a couple of organisations are reviewing their relationships with certain outlets because of racist commentary, the "palace sources" i.e. pressed courtiers have started a veritable shitstorm via the BBC calling into question whether Harry and Meghan checked in with the Queen before naming their offspring (spoiler: they did), and the BBC likely to be sued for libel.

All over THE NAME of a baby girl who isn't even ONE WEEK OLD.

Anyway, here are some of the "highlights"... or should I call them lows:

1. Telegraph "journalist" (now former) Julie Burchill decided it would be a good idea to tweet the following:

The levels of WTF are too numerous to count. Family lawyer, Koch, who is also supposedly a mother of mixed race/Black/Brown children decided to chime in as well. The two decided to exchange a few kiis about it all, here's one, there were more:

Burchill was later fired from her job, her initial response:

She was later suspended from Twitter. Koch tweeted a fauxpology:

She has subsequently been suspended from her job as a family lawyer.

2. Then "journalist" Clemmie Moodie (... a name) decided to get a few digs in at the baby:

This Clemmie is apparently an ambassador for the Make a Wish Foundation, which has now issued a statement:

3. BBC unnamed "sources" claim that the Sussexes did not ask Lizzie for permission to use her nickname/notify her of this. Harry/Meghan sources had already said that they did. A shitstorm is currently ensuing:

If youre not disturbed by all this then... I don't know what to say to you. But it should be noted that ONTD was not above being just as weird about this baby-naming in the announcement pots, with many projecting all manner of nefarious reasons on Harry and Meghan for a twee kid's name. A trip. And we can't ignore that most of this furore is drummed up to distract from the REAL issues like Pedo Andy, the Tory government's corruption scandals etc. TIRED

Dolly Parton (+9 {4} Others) Named One of NME's People Who Defined 2020, Also Saved a Child's Life

Not content with being an icon of music and film, @DollyParton went the extra mile during this pandemic year — NME (@NME) December 13, 2020 The big news for Dolly Parton this year was, of course, her role as a financial backer of research into a COVID vaccine. Her $1 million donation to Vanderbilt University has contributed to the development of Moderna's vaccine - you can't save 2020 much more than that. Oh, but in case you needed another reason to love Dolly this year, she also spoke up in support of Black Lives Matter, saying, “Of course Black lives matter. Do you think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!” How to even sum up John Boyega's 2020? He's spoken out very publicly about his thoughts on how his role in Star Wars dwindled over the course of the trilogy, but more importantly, he spoke up even louder at a Black Lives Matter demonstration in London, making waves with his passionate speech. Being so outspo
