Backlash to Tiger Woods’ tampon ‘prank’ prompts apology

Fifteen-time major champion Tiger Woods apologized after handing fellow golfer Justin Thomas a tampon during the first round of the Genesis Invitational on Thursday.
Following the second round at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, Woods said he didn’t mean to offend anyone.
“It was supposed to be all fun and games and obviously it hasn’t turned out that way,” Woods told reporters. “If I offended anybody, it was not the case, it was just friends having fun. As I said, if I offended anybody in any way, shape or form, I’m sorry. It was not intended to be that way. It was just we play pranks on one another all the time and virally I think this did not come across that way, but between us it was – it’s different.” #SaraSidner #CNN #tigerwoods


    1. But it’s not a recreational event. He’s the host of the event, he’s the most famous golfer in the world, he has all this attention when he plays.

      This isn’t recreation. If he did it on a private round or just in practice, no one would even notice.

      You’re more outraged than the people upset about it.

      Pathetic widdle ❄️ victim

  1. Come on CNN! Soooooo much other things going on and you give this energy. Clearly, you have stooped to FoxNews levels!!!!!

  2. This prank sounds silly, the kind of thing competitors might do to loosen the tension. These women don’t get it.

    1. I’m a woman and I get it. I think it’s funny and people need to lighten up. Please don’t generalize all women tho….just sayin

  3. It was funny, stop being so sensitive my wife and daughter both play golf and thought it was funny, and No golf has been trying for years to get women to play, it’s a lie to say it’s hostile

  4. I haven’t slept since!!!!!!! I am so angry and offended! I’m just kidding, I’m glad people are butt hurt😂

  5. When will people realize that being a father to a girl or having sisters or even being a product of a mother has no influence whatsoever on male chauvinism?

  6. What if its not a joke. Shame on CNN you need sensitivity training. Havent you heard guys have periods now isnt that what the left says? Maybe Justin isnt just a PGA star maybe he’s a menstruating person too. i think an apology is in order

  7. This is hilarious 😆
    It’s really just a joke.
    But maybe next time, just make sure the cameras dont get you 🤣

  8. Lol 😆 🤣 😂 OMG. This sh*t is funny!! The million dollar question is??🤔🤔🤔 where did he get it from🤔🤔 can’t imagine Tiger going to the store for that or even asking somebody for it.

  9. The Karen response to his joke is almost as funny as the gag itself… good to see tiger on the return…👍

  10. Jesus it was a JOKE! So because he’s 47 he can’t have a sense of humor?! Why is everything so triggering for so many people? Lighten up already life is too short!
