That is a moustache on a lady

It’s official you can now tell the truth in New Zealand without getting in trouble for doing so.

Breakfast presenter Paul Henry has got off scot-free for his hairy on-air comments about a female guest’s moustache – and the outspoken host has “no regrets”.

The Herald on Sunday has learned the Broadcasting Standards Authority has not upheld a complaint – finding that TVNZ had already taken sufficient action.

In March, Henry mocked Greenpeace spokeswoman Stephanie Mills’ appearance after an interview, saying “that is a moustache on a lady”.

The BSA’s refusal to condemn Henry has angered Greenpeace, which may now boycott the top-rating morning television show.

And since we can’t get in any trouble for telling the truth, here it is again for your viewing pleasure. Moustache Gate
