James Haskell slammed for 'disgusting' joke about Jacqueline Jossa bikini snap
James Haskell made a cruel joke about people with disabilities on a photo of Jacqueline Jossa, and he's received a massive backlashby Irishmirror.ie
James Haskell has been slammed for a comment he left on a photo of Jacqueline Jossa on her Instagram.
The I'm a Celeb winner posted a photo of herself on the beach with a football, and her camp mate left a comment which has seen him branded "disgusting".
Jaqueline captioned the photo:"So @danosborneofficial took this photo of me and I was certain I was going to look like a full on Instagram model in my cute dungarees on the beach. FUMING!!
"Look at me ... BUT still I look at this with fond memories of playing football on a beach with my hubby, racing and just being so silly. I can’t help but smile.
"Fair to say I will never be that girl".
James, who starred in I'm a Celeb with Jacqueline last year, commented: "You look like you are waiting for the sunshine bus and if anyone touches your football you will go mad."
He appears to have deleted the comment after Jacqueline's angry followers slated the cruel comment, which alludes to special transport used by people with disabilities.
"I’m sorry such an ill judged comment..." wrote one.
"As a parent of a child with a disability these types of comments are often said to mock a person’s disability and are hugely offensive, experience first hand the struggles and pain of a disabled person or be a family member who hears comments relating to a person they love it’s heartbreaking.
"So I will happily be on the pc brigade, defending my child and others with disability," fumed another.
Another added: "Wow James, excelled yourself here, this certainly isn’t ‘banter central’ and no I’m not a snowflake, just think this is a horrible comment."
MirrorOnline has reached out to a rep for James for comment.
The rugby star has caught heat before after his behaviour in the celebrity jungle saw him branded a "bully".
He defended his actions, arguing he was "being a leader" and that he was a victim of bad editing.
