clive hunt bacon. Clive Hunt is fine with bacon. He thought everybody was. He was wrong. Hunt, an IT contractor from Greater Manchester, England, claims casually offering to “buy the bacon sandwiches” to a Muslim recruiter for the National Health Service cost him a $1,500-per-week dream job. Hunt’s remark apparently offended Sharika Sacranie, 29.
“After we shook hands she said that she would come over to meet me on site with the other contractors and take us for breakfast,” Hunt told the Daily Mail. That’s when he dropped the B-word. He says a call came from Sacranie’s manager inquiring about the “racist remark,” though Hunt states he’s “not a racist, never have been. I wasn’t brought up that way.” [Source]
