Sun newspaper apologises to gorillas for ‘shameful and offensive’ article

The Sun newspaper today issued an apology to the the global gorilla community after an article comparing them to Premiership footballers caused widespread outrage.

Printed on page five of today’s edition, it reads:

‘The Sun newspaper would like to offer a full apology for any offence caused. While the article was meant as a light-hearted joke, we now realise it it completely unacceptable to compare such a noble and magnificent animal to a footballer’

‘We promise to learn from this mistake, and would like to take this opportunity to reassure our readers that we will continue to provide them with top quality journalism’

This news comes just days after the Guardian newspaper was forced to issue an apology for suggesting a similarity between the African mountain zebra and current Masters champion Sergio Garcia.
