[WATCH] Where is the condemnation over Warren Buffett's sexists comments?

Why has there been silence over billionaire philanthropist Warren Buffett's outrageous comments on CNBC last week?

That's the question posed by 702 breakfast host Bongani Bingwa on Monday morning following Buffet's comment to a female reporter last week.

Buffett asked her if she knew the difference between a lady and a diplomat. He said if a diplomat says maybe, he means no. But if a lady says no, she means maybe. And if she says maybe, she means yes. And if she says yes - and at this point Buffet was practically gasping at his own wit - she's no lady!

There have been no calls for his resignation. Not a whisper of condemnation. He was just an old man who made an awkward statement.

Was it just a joke that is not funny? Can you say, "c'mon he's 90 - he didn't grope anyone, maybe a light chastisement is all that's needed here?" Is this a little faux pas?

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast show host

If Warren Buffett, one of the most powerful and richest men in the world... relates to the idea that a woman doesn't necessarily mean no when she says no - imagine what has happened to women, in his 90 years, who said no to him when he thought they actually meant yes. Imagine that.
