“The BBC has portrayed me in this horrendous way, they’ve left me high and dry,” she told theDaily Mail

. “They told me that they knew I wasn’t a racist and yet went to the papers and said,“ Yes, we don’t condone what Lottie’s done. ’”                                                                                                                                                                                                             

She added: “So I went to do an interview to get my point across and they [BBC] just sent me an email at 8. pm the day before I was due to come up to London and they said, ‘Lottie, we just can’t help you any more’. So they have basically abandoned me when they’ve caused the situation for me in the first place. ”
