Kogan may be a self-made multi-millionaire, but he has certainly put his foot in it this time.

Ruslan Kogan, who is a self-described “smart-arse”, made the ultimate faux-pas on March 31st, International Day of Transgender Visibility. Tweeting from his personal account to his 17.5 thousand followers, Kogan posted a transphobic joke, comparing the recent ball tampering scandal and its interest over time, with that of Caitlyn Jenner’s transition from male to female in 2015.

The tweet was captioned, “Numbers don’t lie. On a global scale of ball tampering scandals, the current one doesn’t even register.” Along with this caption was this graph:

In a society that is becoming more and more politically correct, his joke was met with outrage. Many twitter users called him out on his derogatory joke,  demanding an apology.

 

Kogan has since deleted the post but is yet to apologise.
