British Army accused of racism after tweet about ‘sense of humour’
 

The British Army may be looking for a new social media manager after this seriously misguided tweet.
Sent from the army’s official account, the tweet said: ‘Being a #soldier in the jungle requires a robust sense of humour’
It was accompanied by this photo:

Because sure enough, the tweet was hastily deleted within an hour of it being posted.
Metro.co.uk has contacted the British Army for comment.
