Iain Lee says sorry for “unforgivable” radio incident after listeners turn on him

talkRADIO presenter Iain Lee has apologised a number of times after an incident which took place on his Late Night Alternative radio show Thursday evening.

Iain has received a barrage of abuse from people online, mostly loyal listeners to his show, saying they are “genuinely sickened” by what he said.

A message on Twitter from Iain immediately after the event said he was “I would like to apologise to everyone for what I just said on air. It’s been a long day and I am sorry for any offence caused. I of course did not mean it, it was a failed attempt at a joke. Thank you for your understanding.”

Fans who have listened for a long time are also turning on him, including Marty, who runs IainLeeVault.com, who says: “Sorry Iain, after tonight’s actions, I can no longer in good conscience continue running iainleevault.com, I’ve had to close it down.”

Iain tweeted again on Friday morning, saying: “Apologies again for the incident on last night’s #TLNA radio show. I had not taken my meds yesterday and my thinking was unclear. However, my words are totally unforgivable and I just hope you can forgive me.”

Iain added that what happened was a joke gone wrong and that he was genuinely sorry.

It all happened just before 11.30pm on Thursday, and the recording is currently still online here.

UPDATE: The audio in question has now been removed from the talkRadio website.
