Apology over racist rant
A SUNDAY Times writer sacked after suggesting Vanessa Feltz and Claudia Winkleman are well paid because they are Jewish has apologised.
Kevin Myers said he believed his career as a columnist was over as a result of his controversial piece – condemned as blatant racism – which appeared online and in the Irish print edition of the paper on Sunday.
Aside from the Jewish remarks, Myers also drew criticism and accusations of misogyny for other points in the column arguing that men justified higher pay than women.
Myers said: “It is over for me professionally, as far as I can see – I am very, very sorry that I should have so offended them.”
