Prince Harry Apologizes For 'Racist' Remark

Prince Harry Apologizes For 'Racist' Remark

Prince Harry apologized on Saturday after UK’s News of the World published video footage showing him calling one soldier a “Paki” (derogatory slang for an immigrant or descendant of an immigrant from Pakistan).

A spokesman for Britain’s royal family said, “Prince Harry fully understands how offensive this term (Paki) can be, and is extremely sorry for any offense his words might cause. However, on this occasion three years ago, Prince Harry used the term without any malice and as a nickname about a highly popular member of his platoon. There is no question that Prince Harry was in any way seeking to insult his friend.”

Harry is also heard saying, “F— me, you look like a raghead.”

A spokesperson said in response, “Prince Harry used the term ‘raghead’ to mean Taliban or Iraqi insurgent.”
