16 Years Old Wozniacki Described as a Sex Symbol

Disgusting behaviour by an interviewer. He said: "Despite her young age she always act very professional ... a special questian is needed to break down her professionalisem. You have a role as a sex object in Denmark. How do you feel about that, do you do that on purpose?"

Someone posted this video in another thread and I was truly taken aback by this disgusting statement. (It happened at 9:10.)

Ah yes, being a sex object is a major component of her professionalism Poor 16 year old Woz was laughing incredulously at the question

Poor Caro. Seriously this is disgusting even for an adult woman let alone kid. Was she really 16 at the time?

Re: 16 Years Old Wozniacki Described as a Sex Object

Watching that vid, you can see that the translation isn't perfect, with some poor phrasing and mispellings here and there. I suspect the interviewer probably used the term "sex symbol", or some Danish equivalent, and it was translated to "sex object."
Perun and Luca Van Diesel like this.

Either way, highly inappropriate knowing her age.

He did say sex symbol. Still inappropriate.

Good reaction by Woz.

Re: 16 Years Old Wozniacki Described as a Sex Object

Interviewer says sex symbol, not sex object, the subtitle is wrong. Who the hell says sex object outside of porn? Now sex symbol is a term used, granted it's kind of weird when talking about a 16yo, but she's certainly not the first one to be considered that. Basically media will attribute those words to any attractive women, yes, even to one that is underage.

So it's silly, her response is adequate (she laughs), but nowhere near as bad as some here might think. But yeah, if it really was sex object, well that would be pretty awful, but it's not.

Being referred to as a sex symbol at 16 is still ridiculously inappropriate.

Are there any moderators on duty?
