Golf sensation Paige Spiranac shot back at her critics after her cheeky comment on Greg Norman’s beach photo caused a stir

The 27-year-old former golfer, now hosting a popular podcast, suggested that Norman’s new nickname should be “hammerhead” after the 65-year-old uploaded the viral photo of himself

It was just one of the thousands of responses to the photo that brought the internet down, but Spiranac has lost far more than its share of criticism on her comment

“Complaining about men commenting on their bodies, about a man’s body I can’t have it both ways, Paige,” one of her followers wrote on Twitter

At that moment, the Instagram sensation drew a line in the sand, telling her followers that there was a difference between the joke she was making and the hideous comments she regularly receives from male followers

“I keep getting this comment. I want to set the record straight,” Spiranac tweeted

“I have never and never will complain about it, just don’t call me a slut or a whore just based on the tops I like to wear. It’s not that hard to understand”

“When someone jokes my tits I laugh I know my brand But there’s a line and people cross it more than not

“This is the only time I stand up for myself and say it’s not okay because it isn’t“That’s the whole point of my original tweet”

The Twitter message from Spiranac received a wide positive response from its followers In response, they sent messages of support and appreciation

The internet has been collapsing ever since The Shark uploaded an X-rated picture of himself on a Florida beach wearing board shorts and not much else

“I don’t know what you mean Kochie, what are you looking at?” News anchor Edwina Bartholomew replied

“It’s just a photo of Greg Norman and his dog walking on the beach”
