Sunrise entertainment reporter Edwina Bartholomew could be facing legal action following an alleged tweet made yesterday about Nine News reporter Seb Costello.
The Sunday Herald Sun reports Nine is considering legal action over the tweet which was deleted after around 50 minutes.
“I was half asleep and on the other side of the world,” Bartholomew told the newspaper.
“My apologies to Seb and all involved. No offence was intended and hopefully none was taken.
“It was clearly a mistake and the errant tweet has been deleted.”
Nine and Costello declined to comment.
