BBC apologises for reporter’s LGBT question to Morocco’s football captain

After one of its correspondents asked Ghizlane Chebbak, the captain of the Moroccan women’s national football team, a “inappropriate” question, the BBC apologized. The question of whether the Moroccan team has “any gay players” was posed to Chebbak during a press conference following the Moroccan team’s World Cup match against Germany on Monday.

“In Morocco, it’s illegal to have a gay relationship. Do you have any gay players in your squad and what’s life like for them in Morocco?” the BBC reporter asked Chebbak.
