New Zealand PM apologises for pulling waitress’s hair

AUCKLAND: New Zealand Prime Minister has now become embroiled in a controversy that centres, quite literally, on hair-pulling.

On Wednesday morning John Key apologised following allegations by an Auckland waitress that he had repeatedly tugged on her ponytail, a pattern of conduct she regarded as harassment.

Through a spokesperson, the prime minister apologised for the hair-pulling, saying it “was never his intention to make her feel uncomfortable”, but did not dispute the waitress’s version of events.
