Ben Foden's pregnant wife Jackie is accused of racism against chinese

Ben Foden's pregnant wife Jackie has shared a controversial post accusing the Chinese government of spreading the coronavirus. 

The American was accused of racism following her Instagram post after she said that the Chinese should cancel the US debt that they own because they have suffered economically from the diseases that keep coming out of here. 

Her first post read: 'China owns a lot of US's debt, BUT how much death and danger have they put us in, and how much money and time and energy have we exhausted because of it, caused by China's diseases that keep coming out of there, either accidentally or intentionally?

'Is that fair? Like if I owe you $100, and then you caused a bunch of deaths in my family, and I had to spend a lot of time, money and energy to prevent further deaths, do I still owe you that $100?

'Like, clean your s*** up China, this isn't the first time this has happened #forgivethedebt.' 

One of her followers then wrote to her to say: 'Eh racism isn't particularly helpful right now. I don't think the USA is suffering like countries in the Third World that do and are repaying debt to the USA. White American privilege...'

Her explanation: She shared this impassioned post on her Stories to explain her grievances in more detail

How is this racist? Jackie was rather keen to deny the accusations against her and hinted at conspiracy theories when it comes to the coronavirus 

Jackie, who was dating Ben for three months before they married, then wrote back: 'How is this racist?! How is it fair?? All these diseases coming out of there, either from poor regulation of meat centers or poor regulation from labs, or they intentionally doing it to cull their population, which, with this very convenient disease that only kills old sick ppl, just seems a [lite] too convenient, it's not fair that we have to bankrupt our economy to deal with it, while still owing them the same amount of money? 

She continued: 'I'm not hating on the Chinese people, I'm talking about the government. That's it.' 

Sharing the exchange, Jackie wrote over the top: 'Any anyone who thinks I am being racist can go ahead and get f***ed and go hit that unfollow button bye.'

China owns approximately $1.1 trillion in U.S. debt, and American debt is said to be a sound investment. 

According to Investopedia: 'There are two main economic reasons Chinese lenders bought up so many U.S. Treasuries. 

'The first and most important is that China wants its own currency, the yuan, pegged to the dollar. This has been common practice for many countries ever since the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944.'

Love: Jackie married Ben Foden after just three months of dating one another - he was previously married to The Saturdays singer Una Healy
