Lucy Zelic apologises over Adelaide insult
"I made an off-handed comment about Adelaide ....and I’m truly sorry for what I said," says SBS Sports presenter.
SBS Sports presenter Lucy Zelic has apologised after describing Adelaide as a “shithole” in an interview on a World Game podcast.
“You won’t see much in Adelaide,” she told Central Coast Mariners recruit Ziggy Gordon.
“Adelaide’s a shithole.
“No disrespect, no disrespect.
“I can say that because I’ve travelled there multiple times and I didn’t enjoy it. I found it to be incredibly dull and boring.”
Today the SBS presenter was madly backpedalling.
“Yesterday I made an off-handed comment about Adelaide on The World Game Live. I recognise these comments weren’t okay and I’m truly sorry for what I said,” she wrote via Twitter.
“It’s an outrageous comment,” South Australian Premier Steven Marshall told news.com.au
“I think that commentator needs to come to Adelaide and have a look at the great state that we are.”
