On Sunday, Dustin Johnson capped off a wild and controversial weekend by winning the 2016 U.S. Open, but the lasting images that Fox Sports seemed interested in involved his wife.

As Johnson, wife Paulina Gretzky, and their son Tatum made their way from the 18th hole to the clubhouse, cameras pulled focus away from Johnson and seemed to focus their attention strictly on Gretzky. Or more to the point, on Gretzky’s dress and behind.

As soon as it happened, plenty of people took to Twitter to wonder aloud if what they were noticing was what everyone else was noticing.

Perhaps aware of the trailing camera crew behind her, Gretzky even takes a moment to fix her dress on multiple occasions, most notably as she walks up stairs and the camera’s angle suddenly gets a little too risky for live network television.

Sporting News said Fox “should be embarassed for ogling” Gretzky while the New York Post notes that the move “divides the internet.” Regardless, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of official notice from Fox Sports about the incident and whether or not they deemed it inappropriate.
