NZ radio host says sorry

In a statement on the RadioLive website, Laws apologised for calling Sir Satyanand a “large, fat man” who has “never left” the buffet table.

“I apologise to the Governor General for comments which were, upon reflection, uncharitable and inappropriate,” Laws said.

“My off-air comments, in particular, crossed the line from puckish to insulting, and although that was not my intent, it was still inappropriate. I also apologise to MediaWorks for any embarrassment that may have been subsequently caused,” he was quoted by The New Zealand Herald.
