Self-proclaimed "Universe Boss" Chris Gayle has landed in soup once again for making sexist remarks yet again at a female journalist, working for The Times in London. The West Indies hard-hitting batsman is currently playing in IPL 2016 with the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
According to Charlotte Edwardes who works for Times of London, Gayle boasted of having "a very, very big bat, the biggest in the wooooorld [sic]," the Australian Associated Press reported. "You think you could lift it? You'd need two hands."
Talking about the questions she had to face, Edwardes wrote, "He asks how many black men I've had, goading me when I deflect the question, and whether I've ever had a 't'eesome' - 'I bet you have. Tell me,'"
Gayle added: "I haven't had a s--g since I been here [in the IPL]." Gayle also mentioned that 10,000 women will throw themselves at him because of the fact he was "damn good-looking."
Speaking about equality between men and women, he noted: "They have more than equality. Women can do what they want. Jamaican women are very vocal. They will let you know what time is it, for sure," Agence-France Presse reported. "Women should please their man. When he comes home, food is on the table. Serious," although if she also works, "they share" and it is down to the "first person home cooks."
Meanwhile, this isn't the first time he is making such statements. Gayle had, earlier this year, stirred quite a storm after making comments like "Don't blush, baby" and "I came here to see your eyes" for a female journalist in a TV interview during the Big Bash League in Australia.
The last time Gayle made the comments in the TV interview, he had to apologise for his comments which he said was only a simple joke, blown out of proportion. Melbourne Renegades boss Stuart Coventry also apologised on behalf of the BBL franchise, for which Gayle played.
Only time will tell now how the IPL management or the franchisee will react to his recent comments. The 36-year-old cricketer is married to Natasha Berridge, and has a baby daughter named Blush.
