CTV parts ways with journalist after coronavirus joke 

On January 26, CTV investigative journalist Peter Akman tweeted a photo of himself standing in front of an Asian man wearing a mask with the caption “Hopefully ALL I got today was a haircut.”

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is XQWH1LY-IVQ5fbyO1dQ-KINpoXVARFiLgpJT75zuSdRN1g31AfP28OvdacHiDmKRWrrMRDTLF2JH9gulY0dquHmNMOOQusRsMVqtWOCFBcu4n3ydGIxKi5_fBc9mFFzC3So_jsnM

The now-deleted tweet was poorly received, quickly amassing dozens of accusations of anti-Chinese racism and insensitivity in the face of what has just been declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization.
