(Daily Mail) A petition has been launched asking for Sunrise's Samantha Armytage to apologise for comments she made on-air last month, dubbed by some viewers as 'racist'. The cause of controversy came when the 37-year-old interviewed non-identical twins from the UK, Lucy and Maria Aylmer, who have become a sensation around the world due to their opposite skin tones. Introducing the 18-year-olds, Armytage congratulated ginger-haired Lucy on getting 'her dad's fair skin,' saying 'good on her.'
