The lawyer in the middle of one of the strangest sexism rows ever publicly documented has been fired at once again for what has come out of his mouth.
Alexander Carter-Silk, 57, has been in the crosshairs this week for sending a ‘horrendously politically incorrect’ LinkedIn message to barrister Charlotte Proudman, 27, in which he said she was stunning.
The incident quickly became somewhat of a shitstorm when Miss Proudman posted a screenshot of the message on her twitter account with the message “How many women are contacted on LinkedIn re their appearance rather than professional skills?” – and since then, the pair have both been under scrutiny for their actions.
But with public media shitstorms such as this one, no stone is left unturned, and Miss Proudman has now been branded a hypocrite after screenshots of her commenting on men’s photos on Facebook emerged on several websites.
Said screenshots, posted by the MailOnline, show Miss Proudman commenting “Hot stuff” and “ooo la la” on two separate photos of two different men, which in reality, is nothing to shout about. However, in this situation, well, we’ll let you be the judge.
But in a much weirder turn of events, Mr Carter-Silk is baring the brunt of some much harsher screenshots, in which he is seen commenting on a photo of his daughter.
In the comments, he says: “Whilst I should not encourage lascivious comments about my daughter… Yee gods she is hot!”, before signing off with: “Smokin… PhD?”
Some would say the comments were left in jest, and that we have no right to judge the relationship between him and his daughter, which is probably true – but all I have taken from this is that I would much rather have Lionel Hutz from The Simpsons representing me in court, than this guy.
To summarise, there are no winners here.
