Friday Fuckwit

Those of us with Facebook accounts and half a brain, know not to post anything disparaging because a friend of a friend of a friend of theirs will probably see it. Not so a silly soldier. Since the world is absorbed with all things Royal Weddingy (yeh, I'm watching it on Teev even though I don't really give a shit) . . this seems kind of appropriate:

A Facebook rant which included calling royal bride-to-be Kate Middleton a "cow" has resulted in a Scots Guard's dismissal, at least from his wedding parade assignment on Friday. It has not resulted in his removal from his Buckingham Palace security duties, yet.
The Facebook post took place after Kate Middleton and Prince William drove by Scots Guardsman Cameron Reilly, sort of snubbing him. Scots Guardsman Cameron Reilly wrote on his: "hur and william drove past me on friday n all a got was a sh**ty wave while she looked the opposite way from me, stupid stuck up cow am a not good enough for them! posh bitch am totally with u on this 1 who reely gives a f*** about hur."
The snubbing and posting apparently took place in March. Reilly was going to beone of the several hundred Scots Guards who are scheduled to line the route for the wedding procession on Friday, April 29, but not any longer.
As a member of the Scots Guard, the 18-year-old Reilly serves in one of the five British military units stand around Buckingham Palace with those furry bearskin hats, taunting passersby to make them laugh of smile.
Seriously, however, Reilly's post on the Royal couple was not his only Facebook faux pas. He listed "causing trouble" and "casually breaking the law" among his interests on his Facebook page, now deleted.
He also posted racist comments on the page. In a comment on one photo, which showed Reilly holding a rifle in each hand, he said he couldn't fit in any more guns because he had "2 many paki's scalps in it already." "Paki" is considered an offensive term by people of Pakistani descent.
In another exchange with a friend, he posted, "Watching a massive Jew gathering at the Tower of London! Have never seen so many rabbis in my life," to which his friend replied, "Get the rifle out..." Reilly replied to that by saying, "Have got one of the Jews in my sights now lmao."

You can all go "Awwwww" now.

Thanks to The Examiner for the story.

That Scots Guardsman might find he is removed from more than Buckingham Palace security duties.

Elegant simplicity is how I would describe that dress!

Enjoy your weekend!

Silly boy can't spell either

Kate Hanley said...

I don't understand why anyone would want to post disparaging remarks and I really don't get how he thinks no one will pay attention to it. Oh well. I watched part of the wedding, she was a beautiful bride and those hats! They were just awesome!

Some people leave little doubt that Darwin knew what he was talking about.

whatcha expect from a teenie-bopper?


barely smart enough to wipe his own ass, the fool!

Janice said...

Yes. A definite fuckwit!

nick said...

So - sexist, racist, anti-semitic and law-breaking. I can't see why he wasn't dismissed instantly for bringing the Scots Guards into disrepute.

And how was Kate expected to behave towards him? Invite him out to dinner and a seat at the opera? You're a squaddie, mate, not an upper class pretty boy. Not in her league, sunshine.

I guess an education, even a minimal education, isn't required to become a member of the Scots Guard. This is true fuckwittery!

Tom said...

how'd he pass a psych evaluation?

Alan Burnett said...

Ah such idiots make us so proud to be British!! (Do they still do £10 passages to Australia?)

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

Dumb fellow! Truly an idiot.

I am WITH YOU in that the royal wedding was a bit bothersome! I avoided Facebook because of all the HOOPLA around the wedding! UGH.

Mim said...
