AFL: Abbie Chatfield blasts players’ TikTok video rating women’s looks


Abbie Chatfield tears apart two AFL players for their ‘extremely sexist’ TikTok video rating women on their looks: ‘They see nothing wrong with it’

Abbie Chatfield has weighed in on a now-deleted TikTok video of Collingwood stars Jack Ginnivan and Isaac Quaynor rating women based on their looks.

The outspoken former Bachelor contestant, 27, described the AFL players’ behaviour as ‘locker room chat’ as they rated women out of 10.

‘They’ve been extremely sexist, misogynistic and have objectified women quite heavily,’ she said on her Hot Nights radio show on Thursday.

Chatfield, who finds the TikTok trend of rating people based on their appearance ‘gross’, suggested Ginnivan and Quaynor’s behaviour would be standard ‘locker room chat’ in the AFL and reflective of ‘how they speak in everyday life’.

‘They see nothing wrong with it, and all the boys would laugh at it,’ she said.

‘This is their sense of humour, this is what they think is funny and this is how locker room chat and this boys’ club thing is so pervasive because they just think it’s funny and they think it’s so normal because they are in the echo chamber.’

Chatfield went on to describe their actions as ‘sexist, classless and derogatory’.  

A TikTok video this week saw Ginnivan, 19, and Quaynor, 22, lying in bed together shirtless as they laughed and rated various women and their physical features.

It’s understood to have been part of a viral TikTok rating game in which participants re-rate a score out of 10 based on new information.

The clip captioned ‘3 mins of hell’ was posted on Ginnivan’s TikTok account but was swiftly deleted on Tuesday after Collingwood became aware of the video.

‘She’s a two, but she smells really nice,’ Ginnivan said in the video.

Quaynor disagreed and gave her a three before moving on to the next woman.

‘She’s a 10, but got some broccoli teeth, like them teeth are going every which way, diagonal, everything,’ Quaynor said.

‘F**king hell. Four,’ Ginnivan responded while laughing.

‘She’s a nine and a half, but is homeless,’ Quaynor said. ‘Two and a half,’ Ginnivan replied.

‘When she’s a four, but she’s rich,’ Quaynor laughed. Ginnivan disagreed with the rating. ‘12.5,’ he replied.

Ginnivan and Quaynor apologised in a separate video on Twitter on Tuesday. 'We've since realised that it's just not acceptable and it doesn't align with [our] values,' Quaynor said

‘Hey guys, just wanted to jump on here and apologise for the TikTok video,’ Quaynor said.

‘We did a trend that we did not think about before posting and we’re really sorry for making the mistake of participating in it and then posting it.

‘We’ve since realised that it’s just not acceptable and it doesn’t align with the values that both of us hold. We’ll keep learning about what we should and shouldn’t post as there’s a lot to learn from.’

Ginnivan added: ‘We’re sorry to everyone at the club, across all platforms, our members, supporters for any impact we’ve caused. Thanks guys and we’re so sorry again.’

Collingwood became aware of the video on Monday and ordered the players to take it down
