Courtney MacKay & Joe Wheeler
In December 2015, Wheeler became engaged to his girlfriend of six years Courtney MacKay, one of the contestants from season 5 of The Block NZ. They married in 2017 and had a daughter in 2019.
Joe Wheeler has been taken off air by Sky Sport after his comments mocking the Asian accent following the Highlanders’ win over the Crusaders on Friday, April 2nd. In an email to Stuff on Wednesday, a Sky spokesperson said: “Joe Wheeler has apologised for his comments and Sky has made it clear where we stand.
“Joe has acknowledged that he has some work to do and we’re supporting him through this. Joe is off air at this time.”
He asked Highlanders first five-eighth Mitchell Hunt about the performance of Japanese team-mate Kazuki Himeno, who starred in their 33-12 upset victory over the defending champions. “He was leally impressive, wasn’t he? He was really, really good,” Wheeler said to Hunt.
Shortly after, Wheeler apologised on Twitter. Other users described the comments as “disgraceful” and “disgusting”.
Tonight I stuffed up! I've spoken with @teikyo_8 (Kazuki Himeno) and apologised to him and the @Highlanders and our Sky crew.I absolutely accept this is not the standard expected of the sideline team.I've got some work to do obviously,but I'm absolutely committed to doing better.
