Really bad, the fact it's ancient history and has nothing to do with Stokes himself makes it even worse.

I've always held Stokes in the worst regard on a personal level, but leveraging his profile for publicity at the expense of his family is shocking.

It’s such a considered move by the editorial team.

To investigate the lead find the ‘scoop’ and then decide that it is worth following up and then publishing without consent is totally immoral. Particularly when it is a story that is clearly going to be very traumatic. How in any way can they see this blatant invasion of privacy as newsworthy?

After the phone hacking scandal it is clear evidence that ultimately nothing has changed.

And to use it as a timed distraction from political events they don't like.

Correct, I just remember a couple of interviews with a few different players of colour in South African teams have had run ins with him.

It's not for no reason that Rabada told him to 'fuck off' after getting him out in that test which didn't have much needle. When he was asked in the interview what had happened, Rabada said something like 'Stokes knows what he's done and this isn't the first time', referring to an incident in an England Lions vs South Africa A game. Bavuma said he walked up to him and said 'are you lost, what the fuck are you doing here'? I can't prove that he's a racist or has made racist comments but I suspect as much.

Obviously him pummelling that guys face in didn't do wonders for my opinion of him either.

I don't get why anyone still buys the rag, they continually do shit like this that just hurts people, and the only reason for doing it is to sell newspapers.

They are absolute scum
