Tiger Woods is facing backlash after giving his friend a tampon during the PGA tour and he’s issuing an apology to those he may have offended.

Tiger is back on the scene after his brutal car wreck in 2021. Many thought that the golf legend would never play again, but of course, Tiger wasn’t going to let anything keep him off the greens and he’s back to dominating the sport again. Recently during the PGA tour, Tiger was triumphant against Justin Thomas. Both are good friends and tease each other with inside jokes. Tiger’s latest joke however has him in hot water and he’s being labeled by some as a misogynist.

Tiger Woods Faces Backlash For Sliding Justin Thomas A Tampon In Prank Gone Wrong

While on the golf course, Tiger slid Justin Thomas a tampon to essentially call him a girl for his performance. It was a small inside joke but it’s 2023 and cameras are everywhere. Once the picture surfaced online, Tiger immediately faced backlash and according to TMZ, women’s empowerment groups aren’t pleased by Tiger’s joke. One of the groups called it “sad” since Tiger has a daughter and said that the joke distracts from serious women’s issues. Tige has now apologized, sort of.

“It was supposed to be all fun and games. Obviously, it hasn’t turned out that way. If I offended anybody in any way, shape, or form, I’m sorry.”


Let this be a lesson for Tiger that cameras are everywhere.
