As 3 News reporter Kim Chisnell helpfully pointed out on Twitter, an article about Paul Henry is the most-read story on the BBC's website this morning.
The Beeb describes Mr Henry as "a popular breakfast show host".
Meanwhile, the popular Mr Henry has been defended, to a fashion, by a Massey University academic.
"When an employer wants to fire someone the unions want them to adhere to months or years of due process before doing so," Associate Professor of Communication Design Claire Robinson told her followers on Twitter this morning.
"However, the Unite union think its OK to picket TVNZ asking for Paul Henry to be sacked on the spot because he is a bigot."
Ms Robinson also noted that "If we sacked every bigot in New Zealand we wouldn’t have much of a workforce left!"
