The senior ITV editor has been accused of an “appalling lack of sensitivity” for his choice of Halloween costume.
Axar.az reports that ITV Commissioning Editor Asif Zubairy has apologized for attending a Halloween party in London dressed as Jamal Khashoggi’s executioner, following backlash.
“I’m a private individual who attended a private party. I realize my Halloween costume may have offended some people, for which I apologize,” Mr. Zubairy told The Daily Mail on Friday.
The party, hosted by British comedian Jonathan Ross, was attended by countless celebrities, attracting paparazzi.
Social media users slammed Mr. Zubairy as insensitive and shocking for his choice of costume, especially as Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was only recently murdered, and the issue is very much an ongoing affair.
Some even called for him to sacked from his senior role at ITV and described his judgement the situation as “unbelievable.”
