The Apprentice has been branded “racist” after Lord Sugar fired the fourth non-white person in a row.
Viewers were left furious after Lubna Farham, 33, became the latest black and ethnic minority contestant to go with people taking to social media to slam the BBC show.
Lubna, who was also involved in a WhatsApp spat with rival Lottie Lion, 19, prior to leaving, follows Shahin Hassan, Kenna Ngoma and Souleyman Bah out of the door in the first four weeks.
After the latest firing, one enraged fan tweeted: “The ethnic cleansing continues on The Apprentice.”
A spokesman for the series said: “Which candidates are in the firing line is determined by being on the losing team.
“The candidates’ performances are then key to Lord Sugar’s decision.”
