Daily Mail recently published a story about George Clooney, which seems to have been totally untrue, fact which determined the famous publication to apologize to the star.
British Daily Mail has already apologized to Clooney for a story they published and which indicated that the mother of Clooney’s fiancée opposed to the couple’s marriage. The reason cited by the publication was religious grounds. Clooney claimed soon after that the report was totally untrue. In fact, the famous actor called this report both irresponsible and wrong. Currently, George Clooney is engaged to Amal Alamuddin, who was said to come from a family of Druse.
The Daily Mail revealed in this article that Clooney’s future mother in law wanted her daughter to marry a Druse man. The popular British tabloid cited some unnamed sources, who are in fact family friends, they said. These sources told them that Amal actually risks being “cast out of the community,” if she goes on with the plan of marrying George Clooney.
Well, George Clooney said that this whole story is fabricated and he clarified the fact that his future mother in law is not a Druse and is definitely not against the marriage of her daughter to the famous actor. Clooney issued a statement to USA Today to clarify things out. Moreover, Clooney added that “to exploit religious differences where none exist is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous.”
Clooney went on to accuse the Daily Mail of inciting to violence. “We have family members all over the world, and the idea that someone would inflame any part of that world for the sole reason of selling papers should be criminal,” the Hollywood star said.
On the other hand, the Daily Mail claimed that the story they published was written in good faith, as this is the information they received from a source. Naturally, the magazine apologized to Clooney and his fiancé, saying they are sorry for causing them distress. Moreover, the Daily Mail went to remove the article from their website and a rep for the publication said that they want to give Clooney the possibility to set the record straight.
