Sometimes commentators behave in a manner that they cause an outrage by their words, sp[specially when interviewing celebrities. The same thing happened at the ongoing Australian Open when Channel 7 tennis commentator asked Canadian tennis star Eugenie Bouchard to ‘twirl.’

Watch the video below 

The 20-year-old was stunned as she was asked by commentator Ian Cohen during her post-match interview: ‘Can you give us a twirl?’ It may be added that Bouchard had just won an impressive 6-0, 6-3 match against Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands in just 54 minutes at Melbourne Park.

'I don't know, an old guy asking you to twirl. It was funny,' Bouchard commented after the incident which has been labelled 'sexist.'

However, Channel 7 has not owned Cohen and said that he works for Tennis Australia and not for Channel 7 - despite the fact that Cohen was holding Channel 7 mike.
