He was in the face of the lady asking for throw in. Later he just tired to show friendly gesture just to make sure the lady is not offended. That’s all there was to it. What is the big deal?

This “outrage” is actually sexism and they don’t even realise it. Player puts hand on official. They see male puts hands on female! It wasn’t aggressive or belittling..wouldn’t even be discussed if she was male..there’s absolutely nothing to see here!
