We don't use the word 'tyrannical' lightly. Just look at some of these comments, from calling on her employers to sack her to a rather sinister countdown clock perhaps suggesting that a Labour government would silence her...
Rachel Riley must be sacked otherwise Channel 4 will be seen as endorsing her outrageous conduct. If you agree please leave a comment and like. https://t.co/YHVVgllfJA— Ali Albrecht (@AliAlbrecht5) November 21, 2019

I seriously hope one of Rachel Riley's friends or family members has the decency to get her the help she so clearly needs.— Matt Thomas #JC4PM (@Trickyjabs) November 21, 2019

So not only is Rachel Riley still falsely smearing Jeremy Corbyn as a racist, she's now doing so by literally covering up his protest against apartheid. Given her trajectory over the last two years, it'll only be another month or two before she's to the right of Katie Hopkins. pic.twitter.com/o0QNCrh0J9— Jack Hancock #JC4PM (@1983Jackhancock) November 21, 2019

I'm sure this just means Rachel Riley did a really good episode of Countdown and not, say for example, embraced white supremacy pic.twitter.com/2nFNeXBhVp— Matt Wain (@TheMattWain) November 21, 2019
