DJ sorry for ‘terrorist’ slur on Tigers star

3AW radio personality John Burns has apologised after being accused of calling Richmond player Bachar Houli a terrorist at a club function at the MCG on Friday night.

In a statement, Burns said: "I have no recollection of making an offensive remark.

"However, I acknowledge that a complaint has been made and the idea that something I've said has offended someone is mortifying to me.

"If I have said anything that has offended anybody, I unreservedly apologise."

Richmond released a statement yesterday, acknowledging Burns' apology but also supporting the member of staff who raised the original complaint.

"We also accept the apology and now consider the matter closed," the statement added.

The abuse allegation centred on Richmond's official match function during the first quarter of the game against Melbourne.
