Butlin's are caught in 'race hate' row after holidaymakers are told to boo a wrestler called 'Hakeem' as he enters ring with Muslim flag to fight 'Tony Spitfire'
by Richard Spillett
Butlin's have been accused of racism over a wrestling night which featured an 'Islamic flag waving' wrestler.
Guests complained after they were encouraged to boo and hiss the fighter named 'Hakeem' in a wrestling night bout against a Union Flag bearing wrestler called 'Tony Spitfire'.
Holiday camp bosses have insisted the gaffe was 'not agreed' with them and they have complained to the company behind the spectacle.
The race row came to light after Christian Ceriso, a father who had taken his children to the camp in Skegness, went online to complain.
