TV presenter and model Donatella Panayiotou has announced her resignation from Grime Daily.
This comes after the shooting incident that took place last weekend during the Grime Daily 1st anniversary party in North London, and the sensationalized news coverage which later went on to cite Donatella as being the main target.
I openly questioned The Sun newspaper’s ridiculous story (click here to read), and it soon became clear that I wasn’t the only one questioning it.
Since then The Sun has published a new article telling the world that Donatella is now receiving death threats (HUGE SIGH). Click HERE to read all about it.
Anyway today Donatella spoke to RWD’s Sian Anderson and had this to say,
“I ignored the newspapers initially as this isn’t – and never was – about me, “It should be about the victims and looking at how this happened and can be prevented from happening again… When I saw the paper I was fuming – I contacted The Sun to try and set them straight but in no way did I sell my story. In the brief conversation I had with Anthony France (the journalist who ran the story) I said I’d been receiving threats as a result and wanted their account rectified as I clearly wasn’t the target of what took place.”
She then went on to add,
“I’d like to officially announce my resignation from Grime Daily. I will no longer be presenting, supporting or associated with the brand or website”.
“Yes, I did give permission for them to use the warehouse but it wasn’t my party and subsequently had nothing to do with me. Posty (the co-founder of Grime Daily) recruited Face4Music to come on board and my dealings with it ended there.”
