Cricketer Chris Gayle created quite an uproar last week after his comments to a female reporter drew heavy criticism on social media, some describing them as as “disrespectful and simply inappropriate.”
After scoring 41 from 15 deliveries in the Melbourne Renegades win over the Hobart Hurricanes in the BBL on Monday night (Australia time), the former West Indies captain suggested to television reporter Mel McLaughlin that the pair go out for a drink. He added, “Don’t blush,” during an awkward pause in the interview.
Some individuals have made fun of the situation by creating t-shirts with the words “Don’t blush baby” in bright fonts, along with a picture of the cricketer. Others have created parody videos, recreating the incident and added a twist to it. Youtube account “Lexo TV” recently released a muppet version.
