Twitter reacts to Gayle’s controversial on-air comments


Gayle’s cheeky comments on air to Channel 10 reporter Mel McLaughlin drew plenty of criticism from all quarters. Gayle’s response to a question about cricket was to ask the reporter out.

Gayle’s Statement

He said:

“Your eyes are beautiful, hopefully, we can win this game and then we can have a drink after as well. Don’t blush baby.”

Unsurprisingly, his comment has come under fire on Twitter, with some taking his side, others dismissing as nothing but a tongue-in-cheek comment that should not deserve so much attention.

Head of BBL

Everard, Head of BBL, said:

“I heard Gayle’s comments and they are disrespectful and simply inappropriate. We will certainly be talking to him and the Renegades about it. This league is all about its appeal to kids, families and females. There’s just no place in the BBL or, for that matter, cricket anywhere, for that sort of behaviour.”

While Network 10 didn’t help matters, as they tweeted this, but later deleted it.
