Guard Off Royal Wedding After Online Posts
According to the British Ministry of Defense, a Buckingham Palace guard has been pulled off of royal wedding duty this week because of offensive posts on his Facebook page.
Cameron Reilly, the guard, used an offensive term to describe Pakistanis on his Facebook page, which was taken offline on Monday. CNN saw the comment before the page was removed.
“In view of the nature of the allegation, it would not be appropriate for the individual to be on parade for The Royal Wedding,” the Ministry of Defence said in a statement.
Reilly, who was pictured on his page wearing the traditional tall black bearskin hat of Buckingham Palace guards, did not immediately respond to CNN attempts to contact him via Facebook.
