Why did the female TV reporter have to apologize?
A German reporter apologized for putting mud on his clothes before covering a flood-ravaged town in Germany last week.
Suzanne Ohlin, 39, says she did it because she felt ashamed to report from the town in clean clothes.
She was reporting for North Rhine-Westphalia, where record rains last week destroyed several homes and killed dozens.
Ohlen said she was helping with relief work before the Good Morning Germany shoot on Monday, but felt ashamed to stand in front of the camera in clean clothes before it aired.
So they inadvertently put mud on their clothes.
He said that at the same time a video of his dirty hands and clothes was made by someone which was later posted on social media.
“I made a big mistake and it shouldn’t have happened,” he added. On the other hand, after the video went viral, the channel has suspended him for violating the rules and regulations.
“It should never have happened to me,” Ohlen said in a statement, apologizing for his actions.
Last week’s worst floods in Germany devastated parts of the country, killing at least 170 people.
