In July of 2014, George Clooney publicly ridiculed the British tabloid, the Daily Mail, after publishing false claims that his future wife’s mother was against the wedding because of religious purposes. The tabloid apologized, but George refused it. He called the paper “the worst kind of tabloid,” one that fabricated facts and put them out to the disadvantage of its readers.
