In January, Star published a cover that implied Katie Holmes had a drug problem but it was really a Scientology treatment which had no basis in reality. I believe they were referring to were E-meter readings.
Anyway, Katie sued Star for $50 million because the cover was blatantly misleading. Naturally, she won and Star publicly apologized to Katie Holmes.
In a recent issue of Star, we published headlines about Katie Holmes that could be read to suggest that she was addicted to drugs. Star did not intend to suggest that Ms. Holmes was a drug addict or was undergoing treatment for a drug addiction. Star apologizes to Ms. Holmes for any misperception and will be making a substantial donation to charity on Ms. Holmes’ behalf for any harm that we may have caused.
Well, I don’t see how it could not be intentionally misleading. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to realize putting “Katie Holmes Drug Shocker!” would lead people to believe she was addicted to real drugs but whatever. At least Star is sorry. Sort of. They’re sorry in that Katie Holmes misunderstood. On account of what an idiot she is. Geez, get some reading comprehension skills little missy.
