Australian tennis player Lleyton Hewitt has been called on to apologize after a Davis Cup umpire’s call inspired an anti-gay comment over the weekend. “Who is this poof?” shouted Hewitt after a line call went against him.
Pete Dillon of the Victorian Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby immediately called him out on the comment: “Whilst we understand the tension in this match and in other sporting events, reverting to this sort of unnecessary and vile name calling is entirely inappropriate.”
