Dan Walker is forced to apologize to Susanna Reid because she & # 39; has misread her intentions & # 39; after she publicly summoned her about an article she wrote about & # 39; catty male colleague & # 39; s & # 39;
Dan Walker had to apologize to Susanna Reid on Thursday after publicly calling her on Twitter about an article he & # 39; had misread & & # 39 ;.
Susanna had written an opinion piece for her Femail column entitled & # 39; They are not women who are small colleagues on TV – they are men. & # 39;
She had written: & # 39; In my experience there is more rivalry between male counterparts. Take ITV & Piers Morgan and Dan Walker, his BBC Breakfast double.
Dan Walker was forced to apologize to Susanna Reid for misrepresenting her intentions & # 39; after publicly calling her about an article she wrote about & # 39; catty male colleague & # 39; s & # 39; on Thursday
& # 39; The way they cut each other on Twitter makes me shiver. I would never talk about such a & # 39; n colleague.
& # 39; After all, women have been beating through the glass ceiling for decades – now that we are there, we do not see the point of breaking apart.
& # 39; Men, on the other hand, seem to get away with it because they don't see shame when they publicly bash each other, and then pass it on as & # 39; joke & # 39; and not bitchiness. But somehow the myth holds that women are the cats. & # 39;
Fair enough: Dan made an apology soon after he realized he had made a mistake
After apparently reading the article briefly, Dan wrote on Twitter: & # 39; Interesting. With the utmost respect @ susannareid100, the insults make you "shiver" really one way.
& # 39; I enjoy the friendly competition with your program. It keeps us all sharp and normally stays within the limits of soft pleasure. See you soon. & # 39;
He also wrote: & # 39; I understand that columns for this newspaper should be provocative, but I humbly advise you to talk to @louiseminchin @BBCNaga @stephbreakfast @carolkirkwood @mikebreakfast @sallynugent – or someone I work with – before I suggested that I ever quit colleagues & # 39; s or am not supportive. & # 39;
Susanna wrote back quickly: & # 39; I have not suggested this for a moment. My reference to you only had to do with how you and Piers talk to each other online. & # 39;
Many people agreed with her and wrote: & # 39; He seems to have a problem with everything and everyone, there's nothing wrong with your column. & # 39;
& # 39; @mrdanwalker Susanna made no suggestion that you should not treat or place your wife or other colleagues without respect http://down.It was just a suggestion how men can be just as bad as women who are competitive want to be, you and and @piersmorgan as a harrow. & # 39; [Sic]
& # 39; Then relax your child! & # 39;
And to his credit, Dan was quick to make a public apology.
He wrote back: & # 39; I greatly respect @ susannareid100 and it seems that I have misread her intentions in this article and I apologize for that – as I did privately.
& # 39; Support from colleagues & # 39; s is currently very sensitive and I take that seriously. I hope you all have a nice day. & # 39;
The newest war of words comes after Piers has destroyed Dan Walker of BBC Breakfast and describes him as & # 39; the dullest, most exasperating virtue signaling, boring opinion-free, toe-curlingly sneaking sycophant on TV & # 39; in a Twitter row about Meghan Markle.
The star of Good Morning Britain is an outspoken critic of the royal couple and criticized them in a tweet yesterday after complaining about their treatment by the media in an ITV documentary.
He said: & Imagine that you are two amazingly privileged royal multi-millionaires going to Africa to make a documentary that supposedly sheds light on poverty, violence against women / girls and racial inequality – and then in fact it's all about their own terrible struggle. I mean, FFS. & # 39;
But his position was ridiculed by Dan Walker, who said he chose Meghan Markle because she didn't want to do a second drink with Mr. Morgan.
In a tweet, Mr. Walker said: & # 39; Imagine getting a TV show and a column of newspapers and using both of them to choose a woman who didn't want to come with you for a second drink. & # 39;
But Morgan responded quickly: & # 39; Imagine you're the dullest, most unbearable virtue signaling, boring opinion-free, toe-curlingly sniffing sycophant on TV?
& # 39; ps For the record, I never asked Meghan for a drink, she asked me. & # 39;
The incident quickly turned into a Twitter spit, with Mr. Walker jokingly asking if Piers was there later for a drink.
He replied: & # 39; Of course if you can afford to fly to Beverly Hills. & # 39;
Mr. Morgan also bragged that he had & # 39; 6.2 million more followers & # 39; then Mr. Walker.
