HO/The Canadian Press

Toronto television station CityNews says the man fired over hurling sexually explicit remarks at reporter Shauna Hunt last weekend has apologized for his actions.

Hunt confronted several men about their apparent plans to use vulgarities as she did fan interviews at a Toronto FC soccer game on Sunday.

One of the men used offensive language during their exchange and was fired by Hydro One after CityNews aired the video, provoking a storm of anger on social media.

CityNews says the man sent Hunt a written apology on Friday.

The station quotes Hunt as saying she appreciated him reaching out with what she felt was a "very genuine apology" and was "happy to accept it."

CityNews reports the man told Hunt he intended the apology to be a personal note to her and she won't release exactly what was said.
