Paul Henry, the New Zealand television station breakfast show host who mispronounced Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit's name several times has resigned, a media report said on Sunday.
Henry's slurs featured as a clip on TVNZ website in which he ridicules the name of Commonwealth Games.
The Video Extras section of TVNZ's website promoted the Dikshit clip, which now appears to have been removed, under the headline Paul Henry laughs about the name Dikshit, Stuff.co.nz reports.
"The dip shit woman. God, what's her name? Dick Shit. Is it Dick Shit ... it looks like 'Dick Shit'. It's so appropriate, because she's Indian, so she'd be dick-in-shit wouldn't she, do you know what I mean? Walking along the street ... it's just so funny," Henry said.
