Anthony Joshua faces feminist backlash over comments on the way he treats his niece


Popular British boxer and world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, has been dragged into a social media banter over a 2017 interview he granted on his relationship with his son and his niece.

According to Anthony Joshua, he is not strict with his son Joseph; but with his niece. He further said he is not strict with his son because he is a boy, he’s going to be a man’s man, he’ll want to spread his wings, be a Jack-the-lad and build his character.

The interview read in part;

Are you a strict dad?

I don’t think I’m that strict with Joseph, I don’t know why. But with my niece I’m strict. I think it is because she is older, but also he’s a boy – he’s going to be a man’s man, he’ll want to spread his wings, be a Jack-the-lad, build his character. But I am sure there are things I will be strict about. But with my niece, there is none of that Jack-the-lad nonsense for her! My view is you have to be a good woman, respectful, one day you will be someone’s wife, you have to learn family morals… what it is to be a good woman.

social media trolls had since reacted to his statement on the interview
