T4 presenter Miquita Oliver was suspended by her bosses after a run-in with pop star Ke$ha at the Shockwaves NME Awards 2010, where she allegedly uttered a 4-letter slur about the ‘Tik Tok’ singer after an interview, which Ke$ha’s manager heard. A Channel 4 spokesman issued the following statement about the situation:
Miquita Oliver was involved in an issue at the NME awards that she now regrets. The matter has been dealt with swiftly by T4, and Miquita has also sent an apology to those concerned and it has been noted. She will remain a key part of our T4 presenting team and viewers will see her on air as normal over the coming weeks.
