Huffington Post posted an update to the article, specifically posting a portion of the show where Henry talks about what role he refused and why. Henry told the host:
Henry was given the nickname “Silverback” (silverbacks are gorillas) in 2007, but it was quickly phased out. Henry also defended the company too, saying:
BP: The Silverback name has been criticized long before this interview, but it’s interesting hearing it from Henry. He was the subject of racist comments by Michael Hayes years ago, but Henry seems to have forgiven him and wanted to keep the company in a positive light. This show lended a lot more credibility than a previous article we posted about.
