Andrew Bogut Criticised For 'Slut-Shaming' Kendall Jenner During NBA Draft

Andrew Bogut has been slammed for making 'misogynistic' remarks about Kendall Jenner with fans accusing him of 'slut-shaming' her.

But the Australian ex-NBA player is refusing to apologise.

In fact, he's taken aim at her for a second time.

Shortly after the 2022 NBA Draft had wrapped up, the former number one overall draft pick took to social media to aim a dig at the supermodel.

"With the 2022 @NBA draft completion yesterday, one big name has yet to find a home," Bogut tweeted.

"Which team will snap up @KendallJenner?

"Solid talent, versatile? Marks around team culture and habit of endless self promotion. Doctors will need to do medical as body has been banged up."

The comments, clearly referring to Jenner's past relationships with NBA players, didn't sit well with people online.

But instead of withdrawing after the backlash his statements, Bogut doubled down.

"I would like to formally apologise for this tweet," he added.

"My scout take forgot to include the elite level of rebounding. I will do better in the future."

This was met with anger from fans on social media.

One tweeted: "This is an awful way to speak about a woman."

While another added: "Such a gross remark... disgusting."

As a third commented: "Bogut being full on misogynist."

And one user explained: "Men who applaud men like Bogut. It’s the link to speaking about women as if they are worth nothing. The slut shaming. The sex shaming. The objectification. The women as a means to gratification. Applauding that is the reason men rape women and why men let them off."

Jenner is currently in a relationship with Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker, but has dated fellow basketball players D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Kyle Kuzma, Blake Griffin and Ben Simmons as well as musician Harry Styles.

Throughout her time in the spotlight, she has chosen to keep her relationships away from the television screen.

But in a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashian's, Jenner opened up on about her 'type'.

"No, I don't actually only date basketball players, if anyone's ever done their research," she said.

"I'm not ashamed that I have a type, and I'm also a genuine basketball fan. So, that just kind of has happened."

She added: "No offence to my older sisters at all, but i think that Kylie [Jenner] and I specifically have had the opportunity to watch our older sisters go through marriages and relationships and break-ups and do them pretty publicly. It was personal preference from a really young age.

"I think it makes my life a lot easier and our relationship a lot better, to be honest...I just feel like it's a private matter and not for anybody else to judge or know."
