Reaction to Rudy Giuliani’s ‘unsettling’ comments on Michelle Wie WestFebruary 21, 2021
The comments blew up Friday night. On Saturday, angry reactions rang across the internet.
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani told a story about LPGA star Michelle Wie West on Steve Bannon’s “War Room” podcast Thursday which made headlines.
The story, which recounts a round Giuliani played with the late Rush Limbaugh at a charity fundraiser seven years ago, made Wie West “shudder,” the five-time LPGA winner said in a statement released on Twitter late Friday night.
“I shudder thinking that he was smiling to my face and complimenting me on my game while objectifying me,” Wie West wrote in part.
Giuliani called the story “funny.” The story instead drew the ire of many.
