JAMAICA 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.
