Kmart said a technical error which banned Christian words on photo printing machines does not reflect its values. Sam Armytage ridicules Kmart apology over Christian words ban . “ Kmart has come out this morning and said it was a technical glitch, that is rubbish ,” she said on air this morning.

The words Jewish and Allah were also banned but mosque, Islam and Koran were not.

By Thursday morning the error had been fixed, though Armytage invited guests to her show such as social commentator Jane Caro to weigh in on the incident.

Ms Caro said she was willing to give the store the benefit of the doubt.

'I'm prepared to believe it was a technical glitch. I can't see why they would do it otherwise. There's no benefit in doing that.

'And Allah was also banned as well, unless there was some attempt to avoid blaspheming or using it inappropriately that went horribly wrong, it makes no sense for them to actually program this deliberately.

'That would be weird and stupid.'

SAM Armytage has slammed Woman’ s Day magazine over a cover story in this week’ s issue declaring she and Sunrise co- host David Koch were “at war.” A FURIOUS Sam Armytage has begged viewers not to pay attention to a report alleging she’ s about to get the sack from Sunrise .

Ms Caro said she accepted it had been a programming error that came from an otherwise well-intended attempt to avoid customers from misusing the words.

'The words that weren't allowed were set too broadly, and anything that could be used as a swear word. Unfortunately people do use such words as swear words.

'It's overreach, it's silly.'

The kiosks are run by Kodak which recently installed software to detect profanities.

Kodak sales and marketing manager Gavin Wulfsohn said the list of profanities was wrong and would be fixed.

A spokesman for Kmart said: 'We would like to sincerely apologise for this system error, which has been rectified overnight. It in no way reflects our views as a business.

'At Kmart, we support diversity and inclusiveness irrespective of race, religion, age, gender, ethnicity, ability, appearance or attitude, and we want our teams and stores to reflect the communities in which we operate'.

Viewers on Sunrise were left convinced of a left-wing conspiracy to ban Christian words.
