UK Border Agency Issued Warning Over Racism Claims
When speaking on this issue, Johnson said that he was just completely appalled by the singer's claims. The mayor said that his letter is supposed to remind the UK Border Agency that they are the 'face and voice' of modern Britain, and they need to act like it.
This issue was brought to light after the American singer took to her Twitter account to inform the world of her ordeal. Not too long after, Mr. Johnson wrote to her on Twitter saying that he heard about the treatment that she had received at a UK airport. He then told her that this is not typical, and he is completely appalled by it. Johnson also wanted her to know that he is on the case and would get to the bottom of it.
The mayor went on to write to the chief executive of the UK Border Agency, Rob Whiteman. He said that it was critical that visitors to the UK have a great experience. This goes double since the Olympic Games will be coming up soon.
