Bale has been booked twice in his last two games for diving, taking his total yellow card tally for diving to four so far this season.
Ginola, who played for Tottenham from 1997 to 2000, has called on referees to stop judging Bale on his reputation, citing from experience that it's difficult for players to keep their balance while running at full speed.
'This debate really annoys me,' said former Spurs star Ginola. 'The kid is doing so well. He shouldn't carry this on his shoulder.
'I don't understand why we put pressure on him with false ideas. It's unfair.
'It's really easy when you run that fast with that pace on the pitch at players - you don't need a big tackle to go down. A little push would be enough to lose the balance.'
Ginola believes that Bale's talent should be protected - a point highlighted by the fact that Bale was injured twice via tackles by Charlie Adam twice in his career.
'Football is about entertainment. When you have players like that who entertain you week in, week out, you have to protect that. It's so precious.' he added.
'You have to take care of them because they are little diamonds in a league like the English Premier League.
'I thought he was a diamond when I saw him play against Inter Milan and score three goals (in 2010). He is special.'
The former France international also earmarked Bale to go achieve great things and even surpass fellow Welshman Ryan Giggs.
'To be put alongside Ryan Giggs is a huge compliment for Gareth Bale, but one day Ryan Giggs will be very happy to be named alongside Gareth Bale,'
'He is the complete player and he is still very young. He has got everything.
'He is going to be a huge asset for the world of football in the next few years.'
