Sky News presenter Kay Burley was forced to make an on-air apology today after mistaking a tribute to Ash Wednesday on American vice president Joe Bidens forehead for a large bruise.
The controversial Miss Burley, 49, made the comments during a conversation with the news channels U.S. correspondent, Greg Milam.
When made aware of her ignorance during a commercial break, Miss Burley then compounded her insulting words by saying: Ive said three Hail Marys, everything is going to be fine.

better brush up on your religious days there twit
Anyone could make this mistake with Biden. Biden a religious man???? that is just too absurd...
HA! It turns out she should know exactly what a bruise looks like: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1028007/Pictured-The-incredible-moment-Sky-TV-presenter-Kay-Burley-grabbed-rival-throat.html
I am a talking head...oops, I went off script. I am a talking head...oops, I went off script. I am a talking head...oops, I went off script. I am a talking head...oops, I went off script.
Her "Hail Mary" crack was dumb, though.
Unless it’s the mark of the Beast.
‘Remember, man, thou art dust and unto dust thou shalt return.’
Or the priest can say (when applying the ashes)
“Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel.”
I think that’s what I would have said to him.
Just a CINO.

Did you hear the latest joke? Joe Biden walked into a bar ... and got a bruise on his head.
Exactly. Until I married a Catholic and converted, I had no idea what Ash Wednesday was, and would not have known why he had a dark mark on his forehead. I do agree her Hail Mary comment was stupid. She should have just said, “I’m sorry, I didn’t know that. I’m glad to have learned something.” and moved on.
Well seeing as it was Biden it is understandable she would think it was a bruise. I wondered about it myself, forgot it was Ash Wednesday.
I would have figured Biden just fell headfirst into some of his own BS.
Biden supports abortion, how could he be a practicing Catholic?
Left me rolling on the floor LMAO. Joe Biden is just the kind of guy who seems to broadcast no religious affiliation at all.
Biden is so deep into Saturn worship (the dead baby thing) there’s all sorts of Christian brands he couldn’t be.
Biden is a practicing Catholic?
Just like Pelosi, “practicing” Catholic.
Yeah, Biden is a practicing Catholic.
He is practicing to be one, one day.
Ash Wednesday is not exclusively a Roman Catholic ritual. The United Methodist Church and several other major protestant denominations are having Ash Wednesday services today.
I keep tellin’ ya! It wasn’t ashes! It was mold! A little chlorine bleach will clean it up!
Yeah...it takes me a second. I always think they’ve suffered some sort of injury and feel bad for them (”Awww....poor woman/man”) until I realize what it is.
Don’t forget the Ash Wednesday Storm...
Yes, United Meth. do observe Ash Wed. now. I had one prepared for this evening and we got snowed out......again. Can’t get up the hill to the church. So...We’re going to observe Ash Wed. on Sunday. I don’t think God will mind, and it will be a chance for some to experience and learn about Ash Wed. who have never come to those services.
