An Australian Tennis tv commentator infuriated tennis fans and offended African Americans around the world with his sexist remarks about Venus Williams derrière. Roger Rasheed, a former coach of Lleyton Hewitt, made the comments during a slow-motion replay of a match between Venus Williams and China’s Yan Zi at the Australian Open this past weekend.

“Take a look at this now,” said Rasheed to his co-commentators Tracy Austin and Nicole Bradtke. “Make or think as you will, ladies, but for me, that’s a pretty good sight.”

Former tennis champ Austin pointed out that Williams had more going for her than just her booty, “she’s got her own clothing line.. and she brings more than just her tennis game to the court.”

Fans around the country lit up the tv station’s switchboard with complaints. Some felt the remarks were inappropriate during a live tennis broadcast.

NBC said there would be no action taken against Rasheed.
