Shoe designer Kenneth Cole has apologised for making an "inappropriate" comment about the ongoing crisis in Egypt, insisting his joke was "poorly timed".
The style guru took to his Twitter.com page on Thursday (03Feb11) to remark on the protests in the Egyptian capital, writing, "Millions are in uproar in Cairo. Rumour is they heard our new spring collection is now available online ...", and then posted a link to the fashion collection's website.
