The Canadian government demanded and got an apology from Fox News host Greg Gutfeld today. In a terse e-mail statement, Gutfeld wrote:
"The March 17th episode of Red Eye included a segment discussing Canada's plan for a 'synchronized break,' which was in no way an attempt to make light of troop efforts," host Greg Gutfeld said in a statement issued Monday.
"However, I realize that my words may have been misunderstood. It was not my intent to disrespect the brave men, women and families of the Canadian military, and for that I apologize. Red Eye is a satirical take on the news, in which all topics are addressed in a lighthearted, humorous and ridiculous manner."
However, earlier in the day a Twitter update from @GregGutfeld read,
"My apologies to the Canadian military, they probably could at least beat the Belgians."
Once an a-hole always an a-hole, eh Greg?
