Danny Baker is being investigated by police over his royal baby tweet.
The 61-year-old broadcaster was sacked by the BBC after he shared a photo of a couple holding hands with a chimpanzee wearing clothes with the caption "Royal Baby leaves hospital", after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their son Archie this week.
And after Danny was accused of mocking Duchess Meghan's African-American heritage, the Metropolitan Police Service confirmed it has opened an investigation after a complaint of racism was made.
A spokesperson told the Daily Mail: "An allegation has been received by the Metropolitan Police Service on Thursday May 9 in relation to a tweet published on May 8. As is routine, the allegation will be reviewed and assessed by specialist officers."
Danny has denied any allegations of racism and said he was trying to make a joke about class.
He previously said: "I didn't know which of our royal princesses had given birth. Otherwise you'd got to be thinking I'd been secretly waiting to make this grotesque joke. There's no truth to it.
"I've been doing a thing on the radio for years of famous people dressed as monkeys with fairground music.
"My go-to photo when any posh people have a baby is this absurd chimpanzee in a top hat leaving the hospital.
"Had it not been Meghan - perfectly good joke. I was trying to make a point about class and it's just preposterous."
A BBC spokesperson said the post was "a serious error of judgement" and confirmed that the corporation had taken the decision to axe him from his weekly show.
The spokesperson added: "[It] goes against the values we as a station aim to embody. Danny's a brilliant broadcaster but will no longer be presenting a weekly show with us."
