In my culture, it’s the woman’s job to cook and clean: Amir Khan

Pakistani-British boxer Amir Khan definitely had a very happening year – or should we say intriguing – and the year hasn’t ended yet!

Amid the family drama, cheating rumors, Faryal’s pregnancy and their breakthrough reconciliation, Amir never fails to surprise, or should we say knock us off our game – and its negatively, we’re taking about.

The latest statements from Khan, are not only in the midst of stirring toxic controversy but in fact, are appalling and a half.

Khan is currently on a reality show, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!. In a recent interview with BBC Asian Network, the 30-year-old clarified that once he comes home from work, it’s his wife’s job to cook for him.

“I would never cook,” said Khan as he chatted with another man who cooked for his wife if she’d be at work. “In my culture, women, that’s their job to do the cooking. They’re best at cooking.”

But that’s not it! He went on to add, “It’s a man’s job to actually do other jobs like the hard work, the hard labour jobs around the house.”

“Doing housework is harder,” the other man argued, “I would not get as tired on my job as I do when I work at home. Until you don’t do it for yourself, you won’t realise how hard that is.”

To which Khan replied, “I’ve got a dishwasher, washing machine, I’ve never actually known how to use these things. I would never touch those machinery, ever. You would turn into a woman. I’m a man. If I started dishwashing —”

To this, a woman interrupted him and asked, “If you use the machine, you would turn into a woman?”

Amir then said, “Yeah.”

And Twitter can’t handle it!

nd Twitter can’t handle it!

We wonder if Khan really thought such statements through before muttering them out in public. It’s quite shocking to witness anyone in this day and age to pass such sexist remarks – let alone a famous personality who is a role model to countless. (PTK)
