If I had to explain to an alien life-form what being a woman on Earth is like, I would just go ahead and show them this point.
I REALLY don't want to get overtly politically on ya'll, but this shit just isn't funny anymore. I realize that this particular tennis player, Maxime Hamou, was most likely just trying to be cute—but really dude, you're a grown-ass-man, not 10-years-old, keep your lips to yourself!
Frankly, I'm only covering this story because the reporter is one #BOSSLADY for maintaining composure and laughing it off (you know, the way most women do when faced with men who won't quit). Take a look at the video shared on Twitter before we continue—
The reporter's name is Maly Thomas and she told HuffPo, as translated by the BBC—"If I hadn't been live on air, I would have punched him." Uh, to be fair, even if she DID punch him on live television I don't think anyone would have blamed her! It's not so much that he was trying to kiss her, it's that he was holding her by the neck and shoulders when she was CLEARLY uncomfortable and trying to get away.
According to For The Win—"The French Open revoked Hamou’s accreditation, banning him from the tournament. The French Tennis Federation released a statement calling Hamou’s behavior 'reprehensible'.”
Well, at least I can take a sigh of relief knowing that this d-bag has been punished for his behavior. Moral of the story? Don't try to kiss a woman unless she wants you to kiss her. Sounds so damn simple when you really think about, right??
