Australian Open Commentator SLAMMED For Racist Comment

An American commentator has sparked outrage after he said Venus Williams turned on her ‘gorilla effect’ during her second round match at the Australian Open.

Williams easily advanced to the third round of the tournament with a straight sets victory of Stefanie Voegele at Rod Laver.

The comment was made on ESPN and has surfaced on Twitter overnight.

Users and viewers were quick to slam the commentator with one saying ‘he should be fired immediately,’’ another said ‘there should be consequences.

It is not known if the commentator has been reprimanded.
