Great British Bake Off dubbed ‘racist’ as Sura’s third BAME contestant sent home

The Great British Bake Off has been dubbed "racist" after Sura became the third BAME contestant to be sent home this series.

During yesterday's episode, the 31-year-old baker was told to pack her bags while Lottie was saved by the judges Paul Hollywood, 54, and Pure Leith, 80.

Some angry viewers dubbed the show "racist" after Loriea was booted off the show in week one and Mak became the second contestant of the BAME community to be eliminated from the BBC show.

After the show wrapped and the credits began rolling, fans rushed to Twitter to vent their frustrations as Sura being the third BAME contestant sent home.

One tweeted: "As a brown person I'm beyond upset but not surprised, I’m afraid @[email protected] this needs to be sorted I’m fed up."

Second wrote: "This is the THIRD time a person of colour has been sent home over a white contestant!!"

"I'm watching #BakeOff for the first time ever and all I am seeing is that the star baker is always a man and the eliminated baker is always a person of colour," posted another.

Another accused: "GBBO is racist."

One viewer tweeted: "Yet enother #BAME contestant leaves #GBBO It's looking like more than a coincidence."

Sura, who is a pharmacy dispenser from London was sent home after coming seventh in the brownie Technical Challenge.

But it was after she served her raw cake during the Showstopper that judges sent her packing her bags.

Some viewers rushed to defend the channel and said that was the "sole" reason she was sent home.

One posted: "Loads of people kicking off on Twitter saying Lottie should have left. Mate. Sura couldn't bake a cake. It was INEDIBLE."

Another trolled: "Well if her cake wasn't raw she would still be there."

"Why did Sura look so shocked when she was voted off? Can't serve a raw cake and expect to stay! It's the bake off equivalent of scoring an own goal and shouting at the keeper!" Said another.

Daily Star Online has contacted Channel 4 for comment.
