I'm sure ''that was the joke'' he was trying to make. I'm sure Eddie Merphy would have had great success with it in his 1987 stand up comedy. Hell, even 10 years ago nobody would have batted an eye. But times are changing.The thing is there is no other usage of that word in the English language so it's strange that he brought it up. Ok, you could argue that someone who puts fudge in boxes is a fudge packer but that's rarely if ever used, e.g. not one is ever called a beans packers, a sweet packer.
He wasn't there earlier, Sideshow Rob came on with Adam Blight. As for whether he should be re-educated - it's perfectly okay for cycling to take China's money but we don't need to take much else from them.He's still there and he's apologised. Do you think it's a sin-binnable offence?
The thing was that GCN/ES seemed to be were well aware that it could be viewed as being offensive and therefore decided not to make the race replay available with English commentary, but still didn't comment on it before days later.If i understand correctly what was said is somebody eat some candy. Literary and not implying something else by it. And then supposedly some section from LGBTQ2S+ got offended? And the person that eat candy after apologized for it?
He said that someone (Rob Hatch) ate candy so quickly it was waste of the candy packers time... except 'fudgepacker' is a well known derogatory term for gay men and their act of penetrative gay sex.If i understand correctly what was said is somebody eat some candy.

That's the crux of the issue isn't it. This was very, very clumsy at best from McEwen.RMcE said in response to Rob Hatch, after Rob H said that Sean "took me down a naughty alley" to a fudge shop, that the "fudgepackers were wasting their time" as RH had guzzled it so quickly - its a play on words. It's not meant as a homophobic insult in that context - its not like he commented on Guarnieri's rainbow wrist band and said "there's no fudgepackers in our sport!" Then again, it's not said to stand in solidarity with undervalued confectionary warehouse employees.
It was tone deaf to use that phrase anywhere near an open mic.
The term is only derogatory and he wouldn’t have just dreamed up a new word.I'm not sure this term is known in its derogatory sense in Oz. I (an Aussie) certainly had never heard of it, though of course I can't speak for McK on that. I'll have to ask around to my Aussie friends.
I don't know about that. In my opinion this is about going backwards. In addition i very much doubt it's in favor of gay men. It's some sort of self-righteous mayhem."modern age."
I don't follow. Everyone one should band together so that The Breakaway can do more giggling? Why? It's become unwatchable.I don't know about that. In my opinion this is about going backwards. In addition i very much doubt it's in favor of gay men. It's some sort of self-righteous mayhem.
Likely the time has come for straight, gay, black, white, men, woman, undefined ... to step together and start fighting it. As this doesn't work in our interest but against us all.
In whose exact interest it is to have people divided in such way. Internet mob? Witch-hunting sprees are in my opinion not all that modern approach. People behind it usually tend to have sinister motives.I don't follow. Everyone one should band together so that The Breakaway can do more giggling? Why? It's become unwatchable.
