LONDON (AP) — Britain’s gossipy glossy Tatler mag has apologized for inappropriate responses about the past Downton Abbey actress Daisy Lewis.
The newspaper tweeted Saturday that this “apologizes unreservedly” to Lewis and will distribute an apology within the next print edition.
Lewis got tweeted that she was “shocked and annoyed” by the magazine’s characterization, which referred to Lewis as small but loud, which made her “fun” at a party and in bed.
In the caption, Tatler wrote, “As Daisy is quite small, you may be tricked into thinking she’s peaceful. LOL. She isn’t. This actress is LOUD. Which makes her fun at a party. And during intercourse. Probably.”
Lewis said “doesn’t anyone at Tatler read the media” — an evident reference to increasing studies of intimate harassment in the film world as well as in English politics.
Lewis tweeted that she is thankful she actually is loud enough to express her unhappiness with the explanation.
