Indian Wells CEO Raymond Moore assuaged the anger over his offensive comments about the Women’s Tennis Association by giving a friendly slap on the behind to several female tennis reporters.

“There ya go,” Moore said as he planted a firm slap on several more tennis reporters. “That should explain my stance quite nicely. Wah-pssh!”

Moore went on to describe how he loves “ladies tennis” during the “two or three weeks per month when the players aren’t menstruating.” He further clarified that wholly inaccurate and offensive remark by simply stating, “It’s science.”

Moore concluded his media session by complimenting the reporters’ “firmness” and encouraging them to “think about wearing something tighter next time.”
