We wish to withdraw and apologise for the tweet, last week, culled from a story that was making the rounds and headlined “’My boyfriend is an animal’ – Juliet Ibrahim jabs Iceberg Slim.”
It had been republished by a major news portal as originating from a named and different source.
Miss Ibrahim had complained via a tweet that the originating source had made up the headline.
It is confirmed that the originating source had a speculative headline. It is also verified that Miss Ibrahim’s tweet relied upon by said source for the story neither named a person nor described a human being as being animal.
It simply suggested an understanding why the famous Bible character may have saved “more animals” than humans in his ark.
Once again, we apologise unreservedly to Juliet Ibrahim for any harm caused as a result of tweeting the said story’s headline.
