Paige Spiranac has had enough of this double standard.
In her latest video, Paige Spiranac called out male sporting icons like Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Tom Brady, and Lebron James in an attempt to expose the hypocrisy of men being able to over sexualize themselves, but not women.
In a video titled, “I said what I said,” the golf influencer showed photos of shirtless male sports stars, including Tom Brady and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“There has been a ton of discussion around female athletes and showing off their bodies,” she said. “People are saying, ‘Stop over sexualizing yourself. You’re taking women back. No one is going to take you seriously,’ and I think that is a big stinkin’ pile of s–t.”
She also went on to name Forbes’ top four highest-paid female athletes, including Naomi Osaka, Serena and Venus Williams and Simone Biles.
“These women have a lot in common. First, they’re all athletic badasses, two of them being considered the greats of all time. They have business ventures outside of their sport, and lastly, they have all posed for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit. Women, they can actually do it all,” she said.
“Oh I know what you’re thinking, ‘Paige, a man would never ever show off his body for attention or over-sexualize himself or do it for a monetary gain. Hmm, are you sure about that?”
Last month, the 2022 Maxim Hot 100 cover star took to her YouTube channel to address body-shaming comments and acknowledged that “getting criticized” is part of her job.
“I know my body is a big part of my brand and that comes with a territory, but it’s hard to maintain my ideal weight all the time for year after year,” she said in part. “I have to work very hard in the gym and with diet. It doesn’t come naturally to me. It can be defeating when people call out my body insecurities.”
Despite how many people hate she gets money, she isn’t going anywhere anytime soon with the type of following she has across different social media channels.
