McCreath Blasts BBC over Sexist tennis comments

When Marion Bartoli shocked the world by winning the Wimbledon Ladies singles Championships this past weekend, BBC commentator John Inverdale criticize her for not being good looking. I was highly offended and disgusted by these comments and created this vlog to voice my concerns. (Photo Credit to USA Today).

In a world in which women often face unnecessary pressure to be skinny and gorgeous, it is sad to think that an older male tennis commentator would proliferate this double-standard. I call shame on this guy and shame on the BBC, and I call on BBC to take this guy off the air and issue an apology.
