Newstalk has today issued an unreserved apology for George Hook’s comments about rape on the station yesterday.

Managing Editor, Patricia Monahan said today that comments made were “totally wrong and inappropriate and should never have been made.”

George Hook has apologised for his comments. He said:

“I wish to apologise unreservedly for comments I made about rape on my radio programme on Newstalk yesterday.

It was unacceptable to suggest in any way that blame could be attributed to victims of rape. 

I apologise for the comments which caused hurt and offence, and for this I am truly sorry.”
