Boyd Banks sorry for licking CBC reporter on live TV, says there’s “no excuse” for his actions


TW: The video is uncomfortable & disturbing.

CBC reporter Chris Glover had his ear repeatedly licked and neck kissed by Canadian stand-up comedian and actor Boyd Banks on live television while reporting from a Toronto bar Tuesday night. The reporter has since filed a police complaint against the comedian and stated that the inappropriate actions by him made him feel deeply uncomfortable, but that he wanted to finish the report.

When CBC reached out to the comedian to comment, he apologized over the phone saying, “There is no excuse for my behaviour last night. I’m guilty of everything.” He continues, “I am an idiot. I want to apologize to the standup community in Canada and of course the reporter, who was doing his job.” He also added that he needed help to treat his own mental health issues.
