Apple’s Jimmy Iovine Apologizes for Saying Women Can’t Find Music

Co-anchor Gayle King tweeted that Iovine’s comments had been taken out of context.

 

 

Apple’s Jimmy Iovine apologized for a comment he made during a morning television interview in which he suggested that “some women” have difficulty finding music.

“We created Apple Music to make finding the right music easier for everyone — men and women, young and old, ” Iovine said in a statement. “Our new ad focuses on women, which is why I answered the way I did, but of course the same applies equally for men. I could have chosen my words better, and I apologize.”
