French DJ Martin Solveg managed to stick his foot firmly in mouth earlier this week when asking the first ever female winner of the Ballon d’Or, Ada Hegerberg, if she knew how to twerk on national tv.
The soccer star gave a quick ‘no’ as her reply.
Solveg later apologized to the Hegerberg and she noted later that “(Solveg) came to me afterwards and as really sad that it went that way. I didn’t really consider it sexual harassment or anything in the moment. I was just happy to do the dance and win the Ballon d’Or.”
Sincere apologies to the one I may have offended. My point was : I don’t invite women to twerk but dance on a Sinatra song. Watch the full sequence People who have followed me for 20 years know how respectful I am especially with women pic.twitter.com/pnZX8qvl4R
