Accra based media giant Joy Fm has finally rendered an apology to Ghanaian Actress Juliet Ibrahim over a recent tweet posted by the media house.
In the tweet, Joy Fm , wrote ‘ My boyfriend is an animal’- Juliet Ibrahim Jabs Iceberg Slim#CosmopolitanMix” . This infuriated Juliet Ibrahim as the tweet was in quote, meaning she actually said that in an interview.
In view of this Juliet Ibrahim threatened to sue the media house for exhibiting unprofessionalism as she did not grant them any interview for them to quote her.
However the tweet was taken down as instructed by Juliet Ibrahim.
Browngh.com sighted a publication by Joy Fm on their official website which was dubbed ‘ RETRACTION AND APOLOGY’, where they apologized to Juliet Ibrahim for their tweet last week , as they claim they culled from a trending story with headline ” My Boyfriend is an animal”- Juliet Ibrahim jabs Iceberg Slim”
On Joy Fm’s official website they wrote:
“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.
Once again, we apologise unreservedly to Juliet Ibrahim for any harm caused as a result of tweeting the said story’s headline.
