Singer Morrissey Wins 'Racism' Action
Updated:11:06, Thursday April 03, 2008

Singer Morrissey has accepted a public apology over a suggestion he was a racist and a hypocrite.

Morrissey in concertThe 48-year-old former Smiths frontman was not at London's High Court to hear the apology.

He had sued Word magazine for libel over an article by David Quantick in March this year.

His solicitor, John Reid, said the closing paragraph could have been taken as suggesting he was a racist or - as the son of migrants - was a hypocrite.

It also suggested that he had in the past paid lip-service only to anti-racism.

Mr Reid said that publishers Development Hell and editor Mark Ellen never intended the article to have the suggested meanings.

He added they wished to make it "absolutely clear" they dissociated themselves entirely from any such inferences.

Their solicitor, Caroline Kean, offered their "sincere apologies" to Morrissey, who is recording in Los Angeles at the moment.

More follows...
Word magazine themselves have disabled users ability to make comments on their site regarding this story. Thats devious and truculent!
