WXIX Anchor Tricia Macke Apologizes For Calling Rachel Maddow ‘an angry young man’

WXIX anchor Tricia Macke has issued an apology for calling MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow “an angry young man.” In a statement on the station’s Facebook page, Macke said her comments were “insensitive and inappropriate.”

“I apologize to Ms. Maddow and any others who may have been offended by my comments, as they do not reflect my firm beliefs in individual and equal rights, and they certainly did not represent the opinions or position of my employer WXIX-TV,” Macke wrote.

GLAAD called on Macke Friday to apologize for her remarks about Maddow, which were made on her personal Facebook page October 12.

WXIX, the Fox affiliate in Cincinnati, said they had “received several expressions of concern” about Macke’s remarks, adding, “We also apologize to anyone who may have been offended by her comments.”
