Qatar World Cup controversy

There have been some controversies surrounding the hosting of the World Cup in Qatar, particularly in terms of LGBTQ+ representation as Qatar is a country that deems homosexuality illegal, reports BBC.

As a result of that, Scott is known to be an ardent ally of the LGBTQ+ movement, and she was criticized for covering the World Cup in Qatar. The broadcaster Sophie Corcoran noted that Alex did a '180 degree turn' by choosing to cover the World Cup.

Corcoran tweeted:

Not too long ago Alex Scott was trying to accuse the England women's team of structural racism and downplayed their victory due to there being too many white players. Now she's in Qatar - a country where gays, women and migrants have no rights. Talk about doing a 180.

However, Scott retorted through a Tweet:

You are getting boring now with your tweets about me... my documentary 'the future of the woman's game' touches on so many subjects ranging from media rights, diversity, maternity rights and highlights the growth of the game. So stop with the lies and do one.

Furthermore, The Daily Mail's Oliver Holt praised Scott, noting that:

The BBC's Alex Scott is in Qatar on merit, defying a regime that treats women as second-class citizens and gay women as criminals. She deserves praise... not scorn, cynicism or censure.
