Sherif Lanre slams Love Island bosses

Former Love Island contestant Sherif Lanre has slammed show bosses, accusing them of, 'double standards.'

The reality star was kicked off the show in 2019 for comments he made about Molly-Mae Hague.

And he thinks it's unfair that new boy Danny Bibby be allowed stay in the villa following that controversial Instagram comment.

Danny faced major backlash online just hours after he made his bombshell appearance on Love Island. 

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

Show bosses gave Danny the chance to apologise from inside the villa.

Danny apologises

In a statement, he said, 'I’d like to take the time to apologise to anyone that may have taken offence to my inappropriate remark.'

'I never meant anything malicious by this comment at all.'

He continued, 'I am not a racist person and it’s unacceptable language and ignorant.'

'I meant no offence and feel like I have really learnt from my mistakes and will never use that word again.'

'I am a kind loving person and hopefully you get to see that in the show.'

In an interview with The Sun, Sherif shared his frustration over how the situation was handled.

Sherif said, 'ITV have shown complete double standards when it comes to racism. They don’t seem to care.'

'A white guy has been allowed to apologise from inside the villa for using the N word and carry on filming, whereas I was removed for play fighting and doing something by accident.'

He was kicked off the show in 2019 over a comment he made about Molly-Mae.

According to Sherif, he was asked to leave the show after he accidentally kicked Molly-Mae in the groin area during a play fight and referred to it as a, 'c*** punt.'

Sherif added, 'The N word shouldn’t be used and this contestant should be removed from the house like I was, especially after the England football team were racially abused this week.'

Meanwhile, Sherif's co-star Anton Danyluk revealed the only person he still speaks to from that series is Anna Vakili.
