Love Island's Danny Bibby comes under fire

Bombshell Love Island contestant Danny Bibby is facing major backlash online, and he hasn't even appeared in a full episode yet.

A screenshot of a racial slur he allegedly used in an old Instagram comment from 2019 started doing the rounds online.

And the plumber's father has since issued a public apology on his behalf.

The comment can be seen in screenshots of an online interaction with a supposed friend.

An Instagram user commented, 'Champ,' on a post, and Danny allegedly replied, 'My n****.'

Danny's father has released a statement, apologising on behalf of his son.

As quoted by MailOnline, he said, 'Danny does not have a racist bone in his body and there were no racist intentions to this post...'

'Although it was not done maliciously, it was a mistake.'

'I absolutely apologise on his behalf for the offence this wording may have caused. That would never have been his intention.'

'I think me and Kaz will vibe'

Danny is set to make his bombshell appearance on tonight's episode, where he'll go on a date with Kaz.

In his Love Island interview, he said, 'I like Kaz’s vibe. Kaz is bubbly like me so I think we’d get on like a house on fire.'

'I think me and Kaz will vibe,' he added.

When it comes to the boys, the plumber reckons they could do with an alpha male in the group.

He said, 'The guys need an alpha male and I feel like that’s me.'

'The girls have Faye who says it how it is but the lads are all like little sheep.'
