Anthony Joshua is facing criticism after making sexist comments in regards to his niece in a GQ interview last year.
The world heavyweight champion was asked if he was a strict father or not, with which he replied, “I don’t think I’m that strict with Joseph, I don’t know why. But with my niece I’m strict.”
He goes onto comparing his son and niece describing Joseph as “he’s going to be a man’s man, he’ll want to spread his wings, be a Jack-the-lad, build his character.” Whereas Anthony’s words for his niece were, “There is none of that Jack-the-lad nonsense for her! My view is you have to be a good woman, respectful, one day you will be someone’s wife, you have to learn family morals… what it is to be a good woman.”
Many people on social media have expressed their disapproval for his views, describing them as misogynistic and sexist.
