How professor/dad Robert Kelly realised he'd gone viral. Very, very viral - BBC Newsbeat
I think you may find Jung-a Kim Robert Kelly's wife may be unhappy at being decribed as a Nanny?
Serves me right
Stereotyping on my part
My unreserved apology to Mrs. Kelly.
Might have been better to have just walked in, picked the eldest up and rolled the baby out. Rather rushing in on hands and knees and dragging the poor bugger out by the arm!
He didn't need to push the older one back either really.
I think a majority of normal people would understand that stuff happens and would have allowed the grace of removing the children more gently.
They are obviously too young to know.
A pitch perfect script
It's hard to think of how that script could be improved.
I was completely lost when the baby with the walker came in,
but the lady was icing on the cake.
Doubt you were the only one caught out.
This was brilliant
Certainly not. Its become a bigger news story than the actual interview.
Why did people assume an Asian woman was the nanny? - BBC News
OK, I know it's an inexcusable mistake but...
As humans we rely on subconscious statistical analysis of events in our surrounding.
The fact is that the vast majority of incidents where we see middle-aged white men whose children are minded by an Asian woman are in fact cases where the Asian woman is a hired nanny. It is a very common arrangements.
Of course some middle-aged white men will marry Asian women, who would then go on to mind their mutual offsprings, but this latter eventuality is far less common than the former.
So our brains are primed to think 'Nanny' when we see a middle-aged white man whose children are minded by an Asian woman.
This is more of an observation/explanation than a justification - of course we are all rational human beings and should not responds simply based on our primary instincts.

It's a weird thing - I've worked from home for many years and my own kids were fine, they just seemed to know daddy was working and they shouldn't disturb me.
Now we have grandkids (who are here a lot, so they're used to me being "at work") and they just don't get it at all and will come charging in at every opportunity.
Ah ... that's "the kids of today" for you
