In this clip from a Ukrainian TV’s raw feed, a Ukranian news anchor tries to do a field piece story during a Dutch pride parade at Eurocup 2012, but for nearly three minutes she is continually interrupted by people in the parade.
While most of the people are just hamming it up for the video camera in front of her, around minute 2:25, a group of men surround her, rub against her, and make her uncomfortable to the point that she runs away. Very clearly harassment.
Would the passersby have treated a male anchor the same way? Perhaps some of the joking around for the camera would have been the same, but I doubt they’d engage in the kind of behavior that happens at 2:24.
Jockular.com, where I found this video, dubbed it “The funniest mass street harassment of a sports reporter in European history.”
AAHH. Yes, some of the people’s antics for the camera were funny, but when they focused their antics on the news anchor and when the group of men surrounded her and made her run away, it was NOT funny.
Street harassment is NOT a joke.
