AFLW player apologizes for offensive messages written on her recording

AFLW player Jess Hosking has been forced to apologize for writing offensive words on her recording during a game.

Ahead of Richmond’s semi-final clash with North Melbourne this weekend, Hosking had “kill female dogs” scrawled across his shoulder tape.

As he was clearly visible whenever the cameras zoomed in, it didn’t take long for eagle-eyed viewers watching from home to figure out what the words read.

After the match, the sport’s governing body acted quickly, sending Hosking a “please explain” before slapping her with an official warning.

“Hosking was extremely remorseful and deeply disappointed in her actions,” read an AFL statement.

“The AFL has since accepted a letter of apology from Jess and issued an official warning to the club and Jess regarding the offensive language.”

When screenshots of Hosking’s recording appeared on social media, Aussie rules fans started to weigh in.

“It was these unsavory comments that drew the ire of the league, with Hosking receiving a formal warning from the AFL,” said reporter Mitch Cleary.

“It was at the game at Punt Road at the weekend and it was visible during the broadcast, clearly written by someone else.

“Hosking however took full ownership.”

His stunt bears some serious similarities to that of former NRL player Kane Evans.

Club CEO Cameron George said: “We don’t accept this, we don’t condone it, or think it’s appropriate and I’m waiting to see if there’s anything to come of it. NRL I guess it’s gonna be today and I told Kane this morning to be ready for something so we’ll wait and see what happens but from the club’s point of view we’ll work with the NRL and see where we land with everything.

The NRL launched an investigation into the matter and Evans was fined $5,000.
