GLASGOW pub giant G1 is to make a public apology after a quizmaster at one of its venues asked: "Is it still rape if you kill her first?"

The question was one of several offensive comments allegedly made during a quiz at the Radio bar in Ashton Lane on Monday night.

Punter Matthew Vickery, who was at the event with his girlfriend and three other female friends, said the quiz held "sexist, misogynistic and homophobic comments and, most frightening of all, encouragement of rape and violence against women".

The G1 Group today said it will apologise at the venue on Monday night and will be "monitoring" the entertainment offered in their bars from now on.

Matthew, 23, who is a postgraduate researcher living in the west end of Glasgow, said: "We were shocked at the questions that were being asked.

"They were completely offensive.

"We complained to the quizmaster about what he was saying but he wasn't interested.

"We decided to stay and document what was said so we could highlight that this is happening and could be going on every week."

The quizmaster was later axed by the G1 Group.

G1's Rhona Fyfe said: "We would like to apologise for any upset caused by the offensive nature and content of this quiz.

"Across a number of our venues we hold quiz nights, and on each occasion, we tender the business to local independent quiz masters who are given a brief on the target market and the type of quiz we are looking for.

"On this occasion the brief was ignored and due to the seriousness of the deviation from the original brief and offensive content of this quiz, with immediate effect, we are no longer working with the quiz master involved."
