He used his Twitter account, which News.com.au said linked directly to the high-level executive search agency’s website, to write Harmer off, calling her “F***cking ugly,” but later deleted the tweets and has since posted an apology.
Waddington told News.com.au that he made the remarks after he threw back a few drinks at BBQ with some mates, saying: “To be perfectly honest with you, I was a bit drunk.”
He had apologised unreservedly since, posting: “@wendy_harmer I am thoroughly ashamed for the crass comments I made. It would perfectly understandable if you ignored any apology.”
