On Sunday night, Montreal Gazette sports reporter Herb Zurkowsky posted sexist, disparaging tweets about Shania Twain, who was the featured performer at the half-time show at the Grey Cup in Ottawa. Zurkowsky subsequently deleted the tweets and posted an apology on Twitter. The Montreal Gazette would like to publicly apologize to Ms. Twain, its readers and anyone else who came across Zurkowsky’s tweets. His tweets deserve the widespread condemnation they have received and do not reflect the views or values of the Montreal Gazette. In addition to this apology, the Montreal Gazette will further address this incident with Zurkowsky internally.
