After been mercilessly pilloried on Social Media platforms over the last several hours, over a headline story carried by the Sunday Gleaner this morning, which was fake, the RJR Gleaner group has now apologised. At least, sort of.
Head of the group Gary Allen issued the apology a short while ago. In it he apologised for any misunderstanding that the story may have cause. He didn’t say though the story would be retracted.
