Journalist sacked for disliking Arctic Monkeys

14th Feb 2006, 12:00 am

A journalist was sacked from the position he'd held for 6 years today after letting slip that he didn't actually like Arctic Monkeys.

The disciplinary action was taken after fellow hacks overheard the man in the staff toilets saying "Arctic Monkeys; I just don't get it. What's so great about them anyway?"

The magazine issued a statement apologising for the comments which were made public on the internet within hours of the outburst. The statement read "We are sorry if offence was caused by the views expressed by one of our staff. Those views do not reflect that of the company or the editorial team. Management and staff at Xcelsior Publishing are united in our total and undying support for Arctic Monkeys. Until the next thing comes along."
