Donald Trump has repeatedly defended his lewd remarks about women as “locker room talk,” an excuse he doubled down on during Sunday night’s second presidential debate.

The offensive comments were made in a 2005 conversation with Billy Bush, which was exposed in a leaked “Access Hollywood” tape on Friday. Trump faced heavy criticism from the public and his own party through the weekend leading up to the debate. 

“Certainly I’m not proud of it, but this was locker room talk,” Trump told moderator Anderson Cooper.

But his comments have professional athletes wondering what locker rooms Donald Trump has been in.

The hashtag #NotInMyLockerRoom has also surfaced among other social media users as a way to speak out against Trump and sexual assault.
