After Eddie McGuire has said another truly offensive comment regarding Caroline Wilson, from his most recent responses, it seems (again) he thinks he can just laugh it off, without offering any legitimate apology.
But former work colleague Jessica Rowe – who has previously revealed the sexism and bullying she faced from McGuire – has spoken out against him and doesn’t think he should get away with it anymore. Despite fellow panelist Joe Hildebrand defending McGuire, Rowe will have none of it.
“I think it is time people called him out. He is someone who I think is a protected species,” said Rowe. “He has said inappropriate things about me – which he denies saying – and he has also said inappropriate things about Adam Goodes.”
McGuire found himself in hot water last year after a joke he made involving Goodes and King Kong.
She goes on to say McGuire should donate $50 thousand dollars to White Ribbon Foundation, while McGuire responded on 3AW this morning, saying that he already donates well over that amount to the charity.
Rowe says that he needs to be held more accountable for his actions and it is a fucking joy to watch. Go Jess!!
