On International Women’s Day, news of Kyle Walker’s alleged indecent exposure incident at a bar in Wilmslow, Cheshire has caused quite a stir, with many people, including Women’s Aid, condemning such behaviour. The footballer’s wife, Annie Kilner, has now spoken up with a clear message for her husband, seemingly alluding to his actions;
“I think it’s important to remember that no matter how good you are to people, it won’t make them good to you.”
The incident is currently under investigation by Cheshire Police, with enquiries in their early stages. Meanwhile, Manchester City has stated that Kyle Walker has not broken any club rules and that they consider it to be a private matter. The footballer continues to train ahead of his team’s match against Crystal Palace this weekend.
Kyle Walker and Kilner, who first met when they were both in their teens, have three children together. Reports suggest that the woman he appears to touch on the breasts and kiss is not his wife, who has brown hair, while the woman in the CCTV footage has blonde hair.
The incident has raised concerns about the long-term effects of indecent exposure, which can cause upset and trauma for those affected by it. It is an issue that is particularly pertinent on International Women’s Day, as women around the world strive for equality and respect.
