Striker demands public apology after being called ‘Fat As A Pig’ on live TV
Charleroi striker Harlem Gnohere has sued a Belgian television commentator after he told viewers that the French forward was "fat as a pig" while analyzing the Jupiler Pro League side’s 2-1 defeat against KV Kortrijk last weekend.
Speaking live on air, Belgacom TV’s Stephane Pauwels claimed that Gnohere was "Fat as a pig," and that "He is 15 kilograms too heavy and going nowhere."
Gnohere - a stocky striker known as "Bison" to the Charleroi fans - wasn’t best pleased with Pauwels’ comments and decided to take legal action against the commentator, seeking a public apology but he also stated that he’d be perfectly willing to drop all the charges if Pauwels agreed to make a charitable donation.
