Australian cricketer David Warner’s wife Candice went through a horrible incident at the Adelaide Oval where she was attending the second Test between Australia and the West Indies.

Candice revealed that she was subjected to ‘vile abuse’ by a group of men and which caused her to fear for herself and her three daughters, who wanted to see their father in action.

Candice, who was hosting ‘Triple M’s Summer Breakfast’ along with Harley Breen and Tom Tilley narrated the whole incident, which she had to go through on Saturday, December 10, which was Day 3 of the Test.

“Saturday afternoon at Adelaide Oval, just before the lunch break, the girls wanted to see their dad. So we went from one area of Adelaide Oval to the other. It was probably about 200m.”

“In that time, I had two of my three daughters, my eight-year-old and my three-year-old, we were walking hand-in-hand, and as we’re walking past a huge group of people, it was a group of five or six men who just started throwing vile abuse at me,” she added.

“I confronted them” – Candice Warner shares horrific experience

Candice Warner said that she continued to walk before she had enough and stopped and looked around at those men and one person, in particular, they started laughing and pointing towards them. Candice then felt that she had to confront them even though she didn’t need to.

“So I decided to confront them. I didn’t have to, but with my girls in my hands, I thought it was really important to confront them because for us, my actions need to mirror the messages I give to my kids.”

“So I confronted them and like any group of men who have been drinking, they were weak, they were gutless, they didn’t own up to what they did and the man who was actual yelling this abuse was hiding behind his friend,” she further said.

Tilley then pressed Candice to explain what she said to those men, who called themselves fans of the game.

“I said ‘Do you feel good about yourself, trying to intimidate me, to belittle me, embarrass me in front of my kids? You clearly don’t have kids yourself, it’s not okay. It’s not okay to bully someone, it’s not okay to make fun of other people’,” Candice added.

The most disappointing thing was that no one came to her assistance in a packed stadium and the ones doing it thought what they were doing was funny. Candice Warner said that in a day and age when more and more women and girls are encouraged to take part in the sport whether as a player or spectators, this incident doesn’t give a good look and also raises the severe question of safety.

“The thing that disappointed me was, one, the fact they thought it was funny, two, that they couldn’t own up to their mistake, but the fact that in a packed stadium, when they could see a mother with two kids clearly in distress, my girls were upset, not one single person came to my assistance. Not one.”

“The sad thing is that in a time when we’re trying to encourage more women, more girls to participate in sport, to attend sport, that I’m now starting to feel like it’s not safe for me and my kids to attend sport and support their father,” she further added.
