MVP boss Bruce James says Gayle’s comments not sexist, sexual harassment

utechathletesb20080701rbJAMAICA GLEANER – President of the MVP Track Club Bruce James says he doesn’t believe the recent controversial comments by West Indies opener Chris Gayle to a female television reporter were sexist or amounted to sexual harassment.

“Based on the clear, clear definition of sexism and sexual harassment his comments don’t seem to fall in either of those,” James told The Gleaner/Power 106 News Centre.

However James believes Gayle’s comments were inappropriate.

After scoring 41 runs from 15 deliveries for the Melbourne Renegades in a win over the Hobart Hurricanes in Australia, the former Windies captain suggested to reporter Mel McLaughlin that they go out for a drink and made remarks about her appearance.

“To see your eyes for the first time is nice. That’s one of the reasons I am here. Hopefully we can have a drink afterwards. Don’t blush, baby,” Gayle said.

  1. His comment and choice of words were totally inappropriate. He needed to consider where and who he was addressing. Obviously is vocabulary is very short. He thinks being seductive is being nice, but it's actually insulting. Get a language coach, so you know how to speaker when away from home. No excuse!

  2. We need to see those differences between Australian laws and Caribbean laws first before pursuing a court case.Australia is very much into local government and state government in dealing with a number of humanistical issues. They've got legal aid and all that falls under thee state. This is just an example to check what their laws are saying in that regard.

  4. The world needs lots more happy jovial people. I wish Chris Gayle well and hopes he stays happy and jovial.
    This incident has been blown way out of proportion - totally unnecessary, he was being nice and friendly.
