Daily Mail – Dustin Johnson won the US Open for the first time in his career …but it was his shapely fiancee’s behind which got more attention on the internet.
A FOX Sports cameraman was the object of particular derision and lampooning as he lingered a little too much on Paulina Gretzky’s backside as she walked up the steps of the clubhouse at the Oakmont Country Club. …
And as she walked up the steps after Johnson had worn the tournament the cameraman’s gaze lingered for just a fraction too long on Miss Gretzky’s posterior.
Cue Twitter meltdown, with the usual division between feminists, male chauvinist pigs and those somewhere in between.
Jennifer Kling tweeted: ‘You know a man is in charge if camera following #PaulinaGretzky @DjohnsonPGA up the damn stairs.’
Ritchie Keister mischievously tweeted: ‘Whos more p***ed off right now – wayne gretzky or the cameramans wife? #paulinagretzky’
This is not really a thing, is it? By that I mean, this backlash against Fox Sports for showing the Royal Rumble that went on between Paulina Gretzky, her minidress and kinetic energy isn’t more than just a handful of perpetually offended Twitter nobodies, right? Please tell me it’s not. Because if more than a few joyless cranks are offended by the fact Paulina has an incredible body and most of the golf audience wanted to see it, then we are in worse trouble than I thought.
Newsflash: Paulina Gretzky is famous for showing herself off on the Internet. She’s hot enough to cause nuclear fusion and people are attracted to attractive people. That sounds so simplistic that I realize I just made us all dumber by saying it, but it needs to be said. Because the Jennifer Klings and Ritchie Keisters have to be reminded from time to time as they effort to reverse human nature. We as mammals are hardwired to be interested in certain physical traits, and the shape of Paulina’s booty just happen to be among them. It’s biology.
But some people want to pretend we exist in some alternate reality where a guy sitting at home on Father’s Day watching the end of the tournament is supposed to avert his eyes and say “Please, Fox, NO! Spare me the sight of this beautiful woman! Cut away to a shot of the pond or a bird in a tree next to the 18th this instant! I beg of you!” It hasn’t happened in millions of years of human evolution, and it’s not happening now just because some uptight, crusading, delusional idealists have Twitter accounts.
