Will Liberals Slam Liberal Icon For Being Sexist?

From Fox News:
The Dalai Lama said in a BBC interview Tuesday that if a woman succeeds him, “that female must be attractive, otherwise it is not much use.” He did not elaborate.
The Tibetan spiritual leader, 80, a self-declared feminist, made the remarks while on a nine-day visit to London, where he is promoting the concepts of compassionate and considerate behavior, The Telegraph reports.
The Dalai Lama made the comment, which he says was not a joke, in response to BBC journalist Clive Myrie’s question about whether it was possible a woman could take over for him.
He confirmed it was, mentioning a statement he made in a 2013 interview that a female Dalai Lama would have "biologically more potential to show affection and compassion."
The comment has been met with widespread criticism from women’s rights groups and social media. In the past, the Dalai Lama has said he does not like backlashes of this sort, saying some feminist activists are too emotional, according to the Telegraph.
The Lama is a liberal icon, so will he be slammed like if Donald Trump or Rush Limbaugh say such a thing?
Or will they give the Lama a pass like they do for Teddy Kennedy, Bill Clinton and other liberal perverts?
