Channel 10 Melbourne Cup presenter Michael Felgate has been widely criticized for pushing the winning trainer's daughter to talk to his son instead.
Felgate spoke with Danny O & # 39; Brien – the trainer of Vow and Declare – when he put his hand on the shoulder of O & Brien's daughter and took her away to interview her brother.
O & # 39; Brien had drawn his children in the interview, delighted with the remarkable victory of his horse in the race that holds back a nation.

After talking to the trainer, the reporter turned his attention to the children – when he set the young girl aside.
& # 39; How good is porridge? How good was that moment for you, & he asked the boy.
The little girl seemed saddened by the movement when the interview ended and her father pulled her into his arms.
Viewers were less than impressed with the interview and smothered it as & # 39; sexist & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Your reporter pushing the girl out of the way? What the hell, & # 39; tweeted a woman's network.
Another said: & # 39; The implicit message that the young girl received: "Your vote is less important". & # 39;

Viewers were less than impressed with the move – slamming like & # 39; sexist & # 39 ;. Some users have defended Felgate's actions
Felgate has people defending him online.
& # 39; He was trying to talk to the son and the girl was blocking his body in front of the camera, and it's not that he wanted to ask her to go on live TV, & # 39; said a person.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Network Ten for comments.
