It’s that time of year when we witness the newest golfer to don that infamous green jacket.

Peter Alliss of BBC apparently couldn’t keep his comments about Angela Akins to himself. According to Yahoo Beauty, a BBC spokesperson says, “While believing he was off air, Peter made a lighthearted remark which he now knows was inappropriate.”
Of course, Twitter did its thing and let him hear it for the rest of the day.

Peter Alliss is an out of touch disgrace to the game of golf now with these consistent sexist comments
