WARNING: Video contains language that some may find offensive.
The Hydro One employee fired over a confrontation with CityNews reporter Shauna Hunt last weekend has apologized for his actions.
In a story that touched a nerve around the world, Hunt confronted a group of men about their apparent plans to use “f— her right in the p—-” vulgarities at a Toronto FC soccer game on Sunday.
One of the men used offensive language during their exchange and was fired after CityNews aired the video.
On Friday, he sent Hunt a written apology, which she accepted.
“I appreciate (him) reaching out with what I felt was a very genuine apology,” Hunt said.
“I was happy to accept it.”
The man told Hunt he intended the apology to be a personal note to her. To respect that, she won’t release exactly what was said.
