    Here's a correct copy of the part of the sentence which is concerning you:


    "Holden distanced itself from the shock jock's highly personal attack on the news.com.au writer"


    Holden makes Australian cars.
    Kyle Sandiland is a radio shock jock.

    Holden advertises on Sandiland's radio show.
    Sandiland said some very bad things about a woman.
    Holden has made a statement that they do not endorse Sandiland's remarks.

    Hello
    yjso21,

    When you come here with a question, please provide the
    necessary context for us to interpret you query.

    The sponsors of the Australian TV's Kyle and Jackie O show have raised serious concerns about Kyle Sandilands' behaviour after he called a journalist a "fat xxxx" on air, threatened to "hunt her down" and made derogatory remarks about her hair and breasts.
    Holden (an Australian automaker Home - Holden. Go better. and sponsor of the show) distanced itself from the shock jock's highly personal attack on the news.com.au writer, which he made in response to her report on on Twitter reaction to his TV show, A Night with the Stars.
    Holden is a sponsor of the television show on which Kyle Sandilands insulted a journalist. Because of this they are reconsidering whether or not to continue advertising on the show and are not closely associating themselves with the show for the time being.
