When it comes down to being between George Clooney versus the “Daily Mail”, it appears that Clooney has won the war.
Just recently, the “Mail” published a report stating that Clooney’s fiance Amal Alamuddin’s mother Baria did not approve of their upcoming wedding. Their article stated that Baria Alamuddin wanted her daughter to marry a Druze man and commented that in some Druze circles going outside of the religion results in the death of the bride.
To that report, Clooney issued a scathing statement to “USA Today” of which you can read HERE. Now, the British tabloid is apologizing for their transgressions against the actor with regard to his wedding.
The “Mail” said, “The story was not a fabrication but supplied in good faith by a reputable and trusted freelance journalist. She based her story on conversations with a long standing contact who has strong connections with senior members of the Lebanese community in the UK and the Druze in Beirut. We only became aware of Mr. Clooney’s concerns this morning and have launched a full investigation.”
Their statement continued, “However, we accept Mr. Clooney’s assurance that the story is inaccurate and we apologise to him, Miss Amal Alamuddin and her mother, Baria, for any distress caused. We have removed the article from our website and will be contacting Mr. Clooney’s representatives to discuss giving him the opportunity to set the record straight.”
We believe that Clooney has already set the record straight with his statement to “USA Today” yesterday, don’t you? There really isn’t much more to be said on the matter than what has already been said. What are your thoughts? Should Clooney or any of the involved parties take the time out of their day to issue another statement directly to the “Daily Mail”? Have your say in the comments section below.
