Collingwood youngsters Jack Ginnivan and Isaac Quaynor have apologised after posting a video on social media platform TikTok where they appeared to rate girls.
Footage emerged on Monday night of the Magpies pair lying in bed, playing a TikTok game where both hypothetical men and women can be rated out of 10 based on a series of stereotypes.
Both Ginnivan and Quaynor appeared on Instagram on Tuesday afternoon, apologising for their actions and pledging to continue to learn.
Hey guys, just wanted to jump on here and apologise for the TikTok video, Quaynor said.
We did a trend that we did not think about before posting, and we are really sorry for making the mistake of participating in it and then posting it.
We have since realised that it’s just not acceptable. It doesn’t align with the values that both of us hold.
We’ll keep learning about what we should and shouldn’t post.
We are sorry to everyone at the club across all platforms, members and supporters for any impact caused, Ginnivan said.
Thanks guys and we are so sorry again.
With the club’s star utility Jordan De Goey still in hot water for his controversial Bali video, the club was further embarrassed by the video emerging of two young players rating women.
The video, which has since been taken down, featured Ginnivan and Quaynor lying on a bed together and speaking direct to camera taking part in a trend that has recently emerged on TikTok.
It saw the footballers giving imaginary women a rating out of 10 based on their looks. The game then requires participants to re-rate the imaginary person based on new and specific information that is created about them, such as if they are homeless or rich, or have bad teeth.
The juvenile game is popular among teenagers. Sources said the pair did not initially realise the offence it would cause when they posted the video online.
The players took the video down on Monday night, but it had already been viewed by hundreds of people and shared.
The intention is to test how much looks matter to a person when presented with new information and how that extra information changes a person’s attitude for better or worse.
The timing of the video for Collingwood and the players could not be worse, coming after
