Gold Coast Titans player Jarrod Wallace has contacted police after receiving backlash on social media over a controversial post. Wallace shared a photo of himself and his pregnant fiancée at an event, with a caption that created heated discussion.
The 31-year-old rugby league star wrote, “You look real good cooking our little boy, but even better when you’re washing my clothes”.
After receiving criticism, Wallace deleted the post and uploaded a new version with a less controversial caption. However, social media users continued to berate him, with some threatening his family. Wallace has since apologised and claimed that the comment was meant as an inside joke between him and his fiancée.
He also emphasised that he does not hold sexist views and that he loves and respects his fiancée. Wallace has reported the threats to police, who are investigating the matter.
