“Idiotic Question!” Journo Goes Viral For Asking French Open Winner Iga Swiatek About Make-Up

“Idiotic Question!” Journo Goes Viral For Asking French Open Winner Iga Swiatek About Make-Up

A Journalist is being roasted online for asking Polish Tennis player, Iga Swiatek about her makeup routine after she just won the French Open.

Swiatek won the French Open defeating her opponent Coco Gauff in two sets, however during her winning press conference a journalist took the moment not to ask about tennis but rather about her make-up routine. Huh?

Pedestrian reported the reporter said:  “One technical question and one which is not.

“The technical is: What is your best shot? Someone says it’s the forehand; someone says it’s the return down-the-line backhand. What do you think? This is the first question.”

“The second question is: Outside of the court: when you go to a party, do you use make-up? Do you like to go elegant and smart and so on?

“Because many players we have seen in the past, they were staying hours in front of the mirror before going on court and using the make-up and you seem very natural like this.”

Honestly, Swiatek politely answered the question, but the internet rightfully called out the journalist.

The truth is no one is asking Rafael Nadal about his skin routine after he wins an Open.
