Melbourne, Oct 11: After arousing a strong racial slur through out the country, New Zealand's Radio Jockey (RJ), Michael Laws apologized to the India-born Kiwi governor, Sir Anand Satyanand.

In a RadioLive website, Laws stated on Oct 11, "I apologize to the Governor General for comments which were, upon reflection, uncharitable and inappropriate."

The controversy began when Laws called the governor general a "fat Indian," which became the cause of the country's Prime Minister, John Key's ire.

"The comments are offensive because they are deeply personal and aimed at the Governor General in a way that is inappropriate for that office," stated Key.
