Fox Sports presenter ‘overwhelmed’ by support

Published:


The Fox Sports presenter who was the topic of sexist and lewd remarks made by a colleague says she has been “overwhelmed by the amount of support” she has obtained.

Megan Barnard thanked everybody who had reached out to her since feedback made by Fox Sports journalist Tom Morris, through which he used degrading language to debate her look and sexuality, had been shared broadly on social media.

“Fortunately, I am at a place in my life where I am comfortable with who I am and I can handle something deeply personal becoming public,” she stated on Instagram on Sunday.

“But had this happened as recently as a few years ago, it would not have been the case.

“Coming out is a process and should never be taken out of someone’s hands. Nor should anyone be spoken about in such a degrading manner.

“I hope my experience can be a catalyst for change in not just the sports industry, but in every industry.”

Fox Sports sacked Morris on Friday over the remarks he made about Barnard, in addition to separate homophobic and racist feedback. The remarks about Barnard had been on an audio recording in a Whatsapp group, from which they had been leaked.

Morris apologised for his behaviour on Friday afternoon.
