The Sunday Mirror, Mirror online and Wales Online have issued an apology to our client James Haskell following a misreporting of comments he made on the comedy podcast My Dad Wrote a Porno.
James had told a tongue-in-cheek anecdote about the wedding of his friends Mike Tindall and Zara Phillips in which he had got drunk and “picked up” a member of the Royal Family. The whole context of the anecdote was, however, wholly changed by an error in the Mirror in which it was falsely suggested that the Royal in question was female. It was in fact, as James had said, a man that he had lifted up.
The Mirror has published a full apology and correction which appears online here.
