Controversial NZTV host Paul Henry resigns
New Zealand’s controversial television anchor Paul Henry resigned on Sunday amid an uproar over racial comments. He had mocked Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dikshit’s name and made racial slurs against Indians.
Earlier, New Zealand apologised to India’s External Affairs ministry over comments made by Paul Henry about the Chief Minister of Delhi.
But the anchor Paul Henry was unfazed by India’s outrage and his own government’s apology. The man himself has still not apologised to Sheila Dikshit as yet.
Henry was suspended without pay for slur against NZ Govenor General.
