The editor of Daily Star , Michael O’Kane, has been suspended for publishing the naked photos of Kate Middleton.
In a statement the paper has said:
“Independent Star Limited has suspended editor Michael O’Kane with immediate effect, pending an investigation into the circumstances that led to the Irish Daily Star re-publishing pages from the French magazine Closer, which contained images of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.”
Michael then defended the action of publishing the photos by saying:
“She’s not the future queen of Ireland, so really the only place this is causing fury seems to be in the UK. She decides to partially disrobe on a balcony where it can be seen from a public road and she’s stunned now, or the Palace are annoyed that people are interested in this.”
Magazines that are thinking of publishing the naked photos of Kate Middleton should think again!
The Irish Daily Star who has published the naked photos is the third magazine to publish the photos the first being France’sCloser and then Italy’s Chi, and now Irish Daily Star.
Now the man who’s responsible for the photos has decided to stop giving them money in protest of the decision!
Richard Desmond is the man who chairs Northern & Shell in the UK, and is responsible for theIrish Daily Star‘s funding he said:
“I am very angry at the decision to publish these photographs and am taking immediate steps to close down the joint venture. The decision to publish these pictures has no justification whatever, and Northern & Shell condemns it in the strongest possible terms.”
Then the editor of the UK Daily Star Gareth Morgan said:
“We’re absolutely horrified here in the office, and as a company. This has no merit as an editorial decision, it has no merit morally, it’s frankly a horrible decision.”
