Tahan Lew-Fatt Defends Reynolds Over Misogyny Claims

Gorgeous model Tahan Lew-Fatt is standing by her beleaguered boyfriend David Reynolds.

This week Reynolds was fined $25,000 for making ‘inappropriate’ remarks concerning fellow Bathurst 1000 entrants Renee Gracie and Simone de Silvestra.

Tahan Lew-Fatt is outraged at the suggestion her beau is sexist.

“Ok, so whoever has seen the news, re my gorgeous ‘apparently sexist’ boyfriend, David Reynolds, knows he made an off-handed comment, that wasn’t even mean!

Lew-Fatt took to Facebook to paint a very different picture of the man who has been the centre of V8 racing this week (for all the wrong reasons).

“My boyfriend is the furthest from sexist … He makes me breakfast every morning and cooks me dinner every night; and (I’m) pretty sure he is the only one who cleans.”

Lew-Fatt then went on to call for support to help her boyfriend pay the $25,000 fine.

“If anyone can donate towards the 25k fine that would be greatly appreciated; he has requested that the V8’s donate the money towards some sort of woman empowerment charity!”

Sledging has been a part of Australian sport since the First Fleet set up stumps.

In the past it was no-holds barred, but gradually norms of acceptability have crept in: Rules against attacking people’s race and family, character assassinations and bullying.

The fight against gender-based sledging is now part of the political correctness governing sport.

Who knows, the V8s may have to drive at the speed limit next year too?
