A BBC commentator has apologised to a 16-year-old British tennis star after saying she had "puppy fat" on live television.Since when has it become politically incorrect to use the term 'puppy fat'???
David Mercer made the remark while discussing Laura Robson's weight as she played her second round juniors match at Wimbledon, The Sun newspaper reports.
"I suppose the one thing that I have at the back of my mind at the moment, is Laura mobile enough around the court?," Mercer said.
"Perhaps a little puppy fat at the moment, the sort of thing you'd expect her to lose as she concentrates on tennis full-time."
Robon said she was not fazed by the comments.
I've spoken to the guy who said it. It's not a big deal," Robson said.
"It's just his opinion. You know, I don't really care."
These people are crazy and the UK is doomed.
Good to see that the kid herself is not in the least bit offended by it all, which must annoy those self-appointed overseers of society who make a living by being offended on behalf of everybody else.
