Bake Off’s Nadiya breaks Daily Mail headline generator

The casual racism robot that automatically produces the Daily Mail’s headlines has been rendered inoperable after Bangladeshi Muslim Nadiya Hussain triumphed in the final of The Great British Bake Off.

The problems began on Tuesday evening when the robot produced headlines such as, “Immigrant Descendent Wins GBBO With Delightful British Fancies” and “Muslim British Bangladeshi Daughter of Immigrant Better Than All Of Us”. The robot was taken offline when it posted to the Daily Mail website, “We Were Wrong, People Of Other Colours And Countries Are Great!” which was quickly manually deleted.

Editor Paul Dacre apologised to a confused and angry readership by running several made-up stories showing immigrants stealing council houses and smuggling them back to Romania in cars paid for by Jeremy Corbyn.
