Sky Sports Golf Coverage

Sky news update: Sky Sports have offered a sincere apology after Helen Alfredsson, commentator, made an offensive joke over the Glasgow incident.

Recently a horrific accident occurred in Scotland. A helicopter crashed into a pub which has killed a minimum of eight people and fourteen others are currently being treated in hospital for their injuries obtained during the crash. Sky Sports have recently issued a sincere apology regarding an alleged joke made about the terrible incident which occurred in Glasgow. The comment which was made by female golfing commentator Helen Alfredsson appalled and offended many viewers resulting in a string of extremely angry complaints. While on air she made a comment about a helicopter which was passing close over head.

The comment was related to the flying skills of the pilot and how she hoped that the pilot in question was better than the ones they have in Scotland. The well renown ex Swedish golfer regrets the comment she made while commenting on Sky Sports; the remark was made while commentating on the Dubai Ladies Masters. Her distasteful comment was quickly reported by viewers who thought it was out of order and upsetting. Alfredsson has now apologised for her comment and understands the disturbing nature of the comment and the pain that it could have caused many viewers.

It is reported that Helen Alfredsson has been described as a creep, and many have called for her sacking over the comment. Sky Sports quickly distanced themselves from the source of the comment and made an extremely fast apology, to customers who found the comment offensive, to show where they stand on the situation. They have deemed the comment unacceptable and are debating which action to take regarding Alfredsson.
