This video went viral with 25,336,463 views on YouTube after Professor Robert Kelly was interrupted on an interview on BBC when his two little kids walked in. The professor kept his calm, while his wife took over and saved the day by taking the children outside.
But the viewers had a completely different view on the view. The wife of Robert Kelly was thought of as his nanny, which led to many debates on the pre-existing racism which doesn’t seem to vanish. The issue also made the professor look bad for shutting the kids out.
Later, another interview of Professor Robert Kelly with his wife was on-aired to make up for the first interview.
This video is also on the list of most watched videos with 35,286,508 views. The video is hilarious with the dubbing of everyone’s dialogues at Trump’s inauguration. There are funny remarks like Trump telling Obama, “Now I pretend I like you.” The video has been watched and shared a lot of times.
