The 73-year-old British Nobel Prize-winning scientist Tim Hunt has resigned from his post at University College London over controversial comments he made about a female Colleague.

The professor has apologized and said that his comments were intended to be light-hearted but also “honest.”

Hunt said on Tuesday that scientists should work in gender-segregated labs. “The trouble with “girls” is that they cause men to fall in love with them and cry when criticized.”

Tim Hunt, who was awarded the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physiology for Medicine,  admitted that he has a reputation for being a “chauvinist”, said to the World Conference of Science Journalists in Seoul, South Korea: “Let me tell you about my trouble with girls … three things happen when they are in the lab … You fall in love with them, they fall in love with you and when you criticize them, they cry.”
