Chris Gayle defends asking reporter out in live broadcast as joke

West Indies batsman Chris Gayle says he was joking when he asked an Australian reporter out during a live TV broadcast and said he was sorry if she was offended by the widely condemned remarks. Gayle had just led the Melbourne Renegades to victory in a nationally televised Twenty20 match in Hobart on 4 January when he was approached for an interview by Channel 10 reporter Melanie McLaughlin.
