Bartholomew posted a tweet response Saturday morning, saying, "He is surprisingly articulated for (censored)." We cannot disclose the word that it uses for legal reasons.
Her tweet was deleted 50 minutes later.
Bartholomew is currently in London on assignment for Sunrise . The Herald Sun reached out to her for comment.
"I was half asleep on the other side of the world," she said.
"My apologies to myself and everyone involved.
"Obviously it was a mistake and a misleading tweet."
