Made In Chelsea star Oliver Proudlock has apologised after he appeared to reference the Holocaust in an Instagram selfie.
The 32-year-old stated he was “mortified by his actions” after he posted a photograph from his vacation in Greece captioned: “Boy within the stripe pyjamas.”
Many linked the caption to The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, a e-book set in a Nazi focus camp throughout the Second World Struggle.
The 2006 novel, written by John Boynes, was tailored into a movie in 2008 starring Asa Butterfield, Rupert Pal and David Thewlis.
In it, Bruno (Butterfield), the eight-year-old son of a focus camp commandant, kinds a friendship with a Jewish boy he meets throughout the camp’s fence.
Proudlock apologised, writing on his Instagram story: “I’ve an enormous apology to make concerning a caption in one among my tales yesterday.
“I’ve harm lots of people with my badly chosen phrases and I’m so, so sorry. It was extremely ignorant.
“I all the time wish to set a superb instance on social media – to unfold love, equality and positivity and yesterday I actually let myself, and all of you down.
“I’m so really sorry and mortified by my actions.”
