Chris Gayle Apologises For Asking Out TV Reporter On Air
The prolific Jamaican batsman Chris Gayle has apologised for comments he made in a tv interview to reporter Mel McLaughlin during a live mid match commentary.
“I came to have this interview with you to see your eyes for the first time. So hopefully we can win this game and have a drink after,” Gayle comically stated during the interview with McLaughlin.
“Don’t blush baby,” he also added.
McLaughlin,who seemed perturbed by the comments, promptly replied to Gayle. “I’m not blushing.”
During a press conference following the controversial remarks, Gayle said sorry for his choice of words:
“A simple joke on air and it went out of proportion. There was not anything at all that was meant to be disrespectful to Mel. …If she felt that way I am really sorry for that.”
Reporter Mel McLaughlin has since stated that she accepts the apology and just wants to move on.
