Matthew Wright again addressed the issues earlier today on his programme by saying “Understandably, I know many of you were upset by comments made in Tuesday’s paper review with regard to the tragic murder of 16-year old Liam Aitchison on Stornoway.
“I would like to say again that I had absolutely no intention of causing any distress to anyone involved in this tragic event or to upset viewers.
“I deeply, deeply regret my thoughtless comments, and very sincerely apologise to Liam’s family and his community.
“I truly apologise from the bottom of my heart if I have made their suffering worse.”
However, many are calling this too little, too late. This should have been his apology in the first instance instead of the half-hearted attempt on Wednesday’s show, which followed by telling those who complained to “Grow Up”
“Perhaps the realisation of the thought of losing his job over his crass remarks has sunk in” said one of our readers. “Insincere, arrogant, vile human being” said another.
Ofcom have confirmed they have received complaints and are still thinking about whether to investigate the comments made.
Matthew Wright simply got it wrong, but has he done enough to make it Wright?
