Ines Sainz, a sports reporter with Mexico’s TV Azteca, is making the media rounds Stateside this week in the wake of a brewing controversy over some inappropriate comments she says she received while conducting interviews in the New York Jets locker room last Saturday afternoon.
Sainz, who represented Mexico in the Miss Universe Contest once upon a time, entered the locker room to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez — clad in form-fitting attire — when she overheard some of the other players making sexually suggestive remarks about her. She explained that in the past there have been similar reactions when she’s entered a men’s locker room — but “the vocabulary was never so rude.”
“I’m so uncomfortable! I’m in the Jets locker room waiting for Mark Sanchez and trying not to look around me,” Sainz Tweeted in Spainish. She later wrote: “I want to cover my ears.”
While Ines ignored the comments, a number of her colleagues were grossly offended by the players’ conduct and promptly reported the situation.
Sainz does not want to press any charges and trusts the NFL will handle the situation, but tole HLN’s Joy Behar Monday that she is taken aback by the assertion that her unofficial daiy uniform of skirt/jeans and tank top may have provoked the alleged sexual harassment.
“I don’t believe that my dress is the point of the discussion here. I don’t do anything to provoke the teams or the players. I believe that I only go to work my job, and if the jeans are or aren’t in a way that they like, that’s not my problem,” Ines remarked in heavily-accented English.
On Monday, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson issued Sainz an apology.
