An Australian journalist has issued an apology to actress Rebel Wilson after being accused of making an attempt to disclose her sexuality, The Guardian reported on Monday.
Andrew Hornery, a gossip columnist for the Sydney Morning Herald, reportedly messaged Wilson’s staff final week, giving them two days to offer remark for a narrative about Wilson’s relationship with a lady, which was not but public information.
Wilson beat Honrnery to the punch and took her relationship with dressmaker Ramona Agruma public through Instagram on Thursday earlier than his story was revealed.
“I thought I was searching for a Disney Prince … but maybe what I really needed all this time was a Disney Princess,” the Australian actress captioned her submit, including, “#loveislove.”
Hornery then revealed a unique column, this one complaining about her transfer. He had reached out to her representatives with “an abundance of caution and respect,” he claims.
“Big mistake,” he added.
Hornery’s response to the alleged snub sparked backlash from readers, prompting the Herald to take away the column.
Hornery has since apologized, saying, “My email was never intended to be a threat.”
He added, “It is not the Herald’s business to ‘out’ people and that is not what we set out to do. But I understand why my email has been seen as a threat. The framing of it was a mistake.”
