Since 1956, the journal France Football awards every year, the Ballon d'or - an award for the world footballer of the year in the Form of a Golden ball. This year, there were at the award ceremony in Paris, a novelty: for the First time, the best footballer of the year was honored. The Norwegian Ada Hegerberg of Olympique Lyon was able to win the Fifa independent choice for. The 23-Year-old had won with their team the 2017/2018 season of the Division 1 Féminine. The Ballon d'or hegerberg won against the Dane Pernille Harder from VfL Wolfsburg and her teammate and German national player Dzsenifer Marozsán.
So far, So progressive. Because that sexism in Sport is, in spite of a trophy for the best footballer still an issue, was, sadly, shortly after Hegerberg had left the stage. There she was taken by one of the moderators of the Evening, the French DJ Martin Solveig, in reception. This is no better question to the laureate, was, apparently, as to ask these to your Twerking skills. At the dance, it is, in simplified terms, is to wiggle as possible with the butt.
Martin Solveig really asked Ada Hegerberg, the first ever Ballon D'or winner, to twerk. The absolute disrespect his bruh. pic.twitter.com/Mtc5DBjS7a— A West (@ayyy_west) 3. December 2018,
Hegerberg reacted visibly unnerved, and turned with a decisive "no!" from your conversation partner. In video clips from the hall a murmur of the audience is to hear. Also, the French national player Kylian Mbappé, who won the award as the best young player, seems to be watching the scene with astonishment.
An obviously "bad" joke
In the social media, made the case for horror. One of the most prominent critics of British Tennis Star Andy Murray. "Another example of the ridiculous sexism, there are still in the Sport," wrote the two-time Wimbledon winner: "Why the need to make women still with this Shit?"
Solveig even tried via Twitter in damage control. In the first Video Post of the musicians said he did not want to offend her with his question to anyone. It was a joke, obviously a "bad". As an apology, he led his lack of knowledge of the English language and culture (the question had Solveig made hegerberg, however, in French). Later in the ceremony, Heger had consented to mount a normal dance with Solveig show.
I explained to @AdaStolsmo the buzz and she told me she understood it was a joke. Nevertheless my apologies to anyone who may have been offended. Most importantly congratulations to Ada pic.twitter.com/DATdg0TfQk— Martin Solveig (@Martin Solveig) 3. December 2018,
Later, he posted a photo of himself and the footballer, including a trophy. To this end, he wrote that he had spoken with hegerberg about the riots - this had assured him that they have come to understand that the Whole thing was meant as a joke. "Nevertheless, I apologize to all that may have been offended," added Solveig.
The organizers who wanted to put up with the night is a sign for equality in Sport are likely to consider but it's twice that if you book the DJ for a second Time.
