Ashraf added that asking sexist and abusive questions is not actually part of his job. “He should be banned from reporting anything other than his actual job, covering their sports and football tournaments,” Ashraf said, adding that “ignorance is bliss” and “a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.” Ended up with hashtags.
