Anthony Joshua sparks anger of feminists over misogynistic statement about his niece
British Nigerian boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, has become one of the most trending personalities on Twitter with over 25,000 reactions after making a controversial comment about his niece and son.
Feminists on Twitter are currently dragging the champ by his balls, over the comment he made in a GQ magazine interview he granted in 2017.
In the interview, Anthony who is currently single but has a son, told the interviewer that he is more strict on his niece than on his son because he believes his son, Joseph, will grow to become a man’s man but that his niece will someday become someone’s wife and so he must instill in her some values.
When asked if he is a strict Dad, Anthony said:
I don’t think I’m that strict with Joseph, I don’t know why. But with my niece I’m strict. I think it is because she is older, but also he’s a boy – he’s going to be a man’s man, he’ll want to spread his wings, be a Jack-the-lad, build his character. But I am sure there are things I will be strict about. But with my niece, 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” .
This apparently did not go down well with the Feminists who argue that his comment has shown his misogynistic side.
