Senior BBC official accused of ‘foul-mouthed and highly political’ outbursts on Twitter


A senior BBC official chief has been accused of unleashing a number of foul-mouthed and highly political outbursts on Twitter with one wishing death on Donald Trump. Melanie Briggs who is the human resources executive at the BBC also retweeted a tweet by a socialist account which questioned the validity of Boris Johnson’s coronavirus diagnosis. 

Briggs also called the actor Laurence Fox a c*nt as well as and posted a smiling selfie of herself with the former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn with the caption ‘JELFIE!!’ as well as a love heart emoji. These developments come just days after the BBC’s new director-general Tim Davie warned staff of bias at the BBC.


Briggs also retweeted anti-Brexit messages when she retweeted the left-wing Labour MP Clive Lewis when he said he called on people to take to the streets if Boris Johnson prorogued Parliament. UNN’s Oliver Down understands that Ms Briggs has been at the BBC for the last seven years.  

The activity that has received the most outrage was when Briggs retweeted Donald Trump and added the caption: “Please just have a massive coronary and die before you kill everyone else, you deranged, stupid man”.

An unnamed source from within the BBC has said: “This is very inappropriate. She’s in a very senior HR role and is constantly swearing using the worst language and posting her political views openly. The timing could not be worse. It’s just after the new top dog said he didn’t want employees openly being political. This is far worse than that. It’s so foul and abusive”.
