Hugh Sheridan slams 'hurtful' article about split from fiance

Asia's Tech News Daily

Loading Instagram Post, @kurtroberts_, @pedestriantv

Actor Hugh Sheridan has slammed Australian pop culture website Pedestrian TV for labelling their breakup as “cringeworthy”.

The Packed to the Rafters star, who announced their sudden split from Kurt Roberts on Friday, told his Instagram followers in an emotionally charged post they were “so done with being kicked in the guts “.

“Shame on you @pedestriantv I’m so done with being kicked in the guts for being honest and trying to help people be OK with vulnerability,” Sheridan wrote.

“How can you call any human ‘honestly kinda deranged’ for being honest? How can you sleep at night? By Kurt and I showing respect and love to a relationship while we’re clearly hurting and have been for a long time is not exactly an easy thing to share.”

Pedestrian has since edited the article and removed the author’s byline.

“An earlier version of this article included a line that described the Instagram posts as ‘kinda deranged’. This was a poor choice of words and we apologise for any offence caused,” an editor’s note at the top of the story now reads.

But Sheridan said the website should have taken down the entire story.

“I’m so sorry @kurtroberts_ everything I said was true and this should’ve been taken down at the same time they edited out ‘honestly kinda deranged’ because someone @pedestriantv obviously realised that might be offensive. So disappointed and hurtful to us both. I’m sorry Kurt that this was published,” Sheridan wrote.

On Friday the 36-year-old shocked fans when they publicly announced their relationship was over.

In a gut-wrenching statement Sheridan revealed their busy work schedule, the death of their father Denis earlier this year and the pandemic had all made things difficult for the pair.

“I didn’t think it would be right to not say Happy Birthday to an amazing and caring human, but also not be false cause whether it’s right or wrong; transparency is what I promised you all,” they wrote.

“For now we didn’t make it, but we tried very, very hard, I’m so sorry for us that it wasn’t easy and I’m sorry for the added pressure.”
