Coronation Street star Marc Anwar, who played Sharif Nazir, has been sacked by ITV bosses after he posted a string of outrageous racial slurs on Twitter.
The Pakistan-born actor branded Indians “b*****ds” and “p**s-drinking c**ts”.
The Sunday Mirror alerted ITV chiefs to the vile rants and he was sacked within hours.
ITV said in a statement: “We are deeply shocked by the entirely unacceptable, racially offensive comments made on Twitter by Marc Anwar.”
“We have talked to Marc and, as a consequence of his comments, he will not be returning to Coronation Street with immediate effect.”
