Per WOWK, the UK Media is calling Prince Andrew’s BBC interview where he addresses his friendship with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein a train wreck.
In an interview with the BBC, Prince Andrew said he has “no recollection” of meeting Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
Giuffre claims she had sex with the royal three times at Jeffrey Epstein’s properties.
Prince Andrew has said he could not have had sex with the teenager, Virginia Giuffre, because on the night in question he took his daughter Beatrice to a party at Pizza Express in Woking, and then spent the night at home with his children.
He said: ‘Going to Pizza Express in Woking is an unusual thing for me to do, a very weird thing for me to do.’ Prince Andrew also said that Giuffre’s assertion that he sweated heavily when dancing with her was untrue because, due to a medical condition at the time, it was almost impossible for him to sweat.
Asked why he stayed at a convicted pedophile’s home, Prince Andrew responded “it was a convenient place to stay.”
WOWK reports British media have slammed Prince Andrew’s effort to rebut claims that he had sex with a woman who says she was trafficked as a teenager by Jeffrey Epstein, branding the interview a public relations disaster.
In a rare interview with BBC Newsnight broadcast Saturday, Andrew categorically denied having sex with the woman, Virginia Roberts Giuffre.
But Britain’s newspapers and social media commentators are criticizing him for still defending his friendship with Epstein and failing to show sympathy for the convicted sex-offender’s victims.
Even some who closely follow the royal family, such as the editor of the Royal Central website, offered more shock than sympathy.
Charlie Proctor wrote on Twitter: “I expected a train wreck. That was a plane crashing into an oil tanker, causing a tsunami, triggering a nuclear explosion-level bad.”
