Jamaican batsman, Chris Gayle has slammed former players who criticized him for propositioning a reporter during a live TV interview.

Gayle, the self-styled ‘Universe Boss’ of T20 cricket launched an Instagram tirade against players who failed to stand up for him but also thanked Australian fans for their support following a record big bash innings.

He chided some for defending him privately but remaining silent in the public domain.

He has faced widespread backlash for his ‘inappropriate’ remarks to Mel McLaughlin, telling her she has beautiful eyes and famously quipping ‘don’t blush, baby’.
