The best correction ever

By Simon Round, June 27, 2008

This correction of a story about Liza Minnelli’s former husband David Gest, published in the Daily Mail last week, is our favourite Jewish celebrity correction. Ever. As a service to readers, we print it verbatim:

“In articles published on 23 and 26 May, 2008, we gave the impression that Mr Gest had contracted a sexually transmitted infection and alleged that he had Liza Minelli’s dog killed without her knowledge. This was wrong. David Gest has never had a sexually transmitted infection and did not have Ms Minelli’s dog killed. We apologise to Mr Gest for any embarrassment caused.”
