Sky New presenter Kay Burley was forced to make an on-air apology after mistaking a Roman Catholic symbol on American vice president Joe Biden’s forehead for a ‘large bruise’.
Miss Burley, 49, made the comments yesterday during a conversation with the news channel’s US correspondent, Greg Milam.
When made aware of her ignorance during a commercial break, Miss Burley then compounded her insulting words by saying: ‘I’ve said three Hail Marys, everything is going to be fine.’
The worse news is that the anchor is Catholic.
I’ve got a better one. My friend once used a reporter at a concert who saw a bunch of people walking towards her and she claimed that “Some kind of satanic cult” was coming towards her.
