International Olympic Committee On Tokyo 2020 President Sexist Remarks
IOC CALLS TOKYO 2020 PRESIDENT SEXIST REMARKS “ABSOLUTELY INAPPROPRIATE”
(CNN) – The International Olympic Committee released a statement on Tuesday saying that sexist remarks about women made by Tokyo 2020 president Yoshiro Mori were “absolutely inappropriate.”
Mori has come under pressure to resign after some comments were leaked to Japanese media last week.
He said that “women talk too much during meetings.”
The 83-year-old has since apologized but maintains that he won’t be standing down from his post.
The International Olympic Committee also said that Mori’s comments are in contradiction to the organization’s commitments.
