Canada – Actress Elisha Cuthbert and her Canadian NHL player husband Dion Phaneuf have threatened legal action against TSN following a controversial post being made about them on Twitter. As reported by WebProNews, a tweet appeared on the network during its coverage of the NHL trade deadline suggesting that Cuthbert was having an affair with Joffrey Lupul.
TSN issued an apology publicly regarding the social media post March 3 stating, “Yesterday when TSN was reporting on the NHL trade deadline it displayed a scrolling ticker of tweets from the public. In spite of TSN’s protocols to prevent unfounded and inappropriate tweets from making it to air, a false, and inappropriate tweet was allowed to run.
“There was no basis for the false allegation made in this tweet. TSN unreservedly apologizes to Joffrey Lupul, Dion Phaneuf and Elisha Cuthbert and regrets any embarrassment this unfortunate incident has caused to them.”
An attorney representing the couple and Lupul has since demanded that damages be paid to his clients, alleging they were victims of defamation.
