The state-owned “Television New Zealand” presenter has been force to apologise after receiving a flood of complaints about the incidental. Paul later went on to say he never intended to offend people with disabilities.

“I am sorry that some people have taken what I said in a way that I never intended,” Henry said.

On the show Paul quoted a article in which it said Susan Boyle was “starved of oxygen at birth and suffered an intellectual disability”.

“If you look at her carefully, you can make it out,” Henry told viewers.
