Reporter Endured 'Disgusting' Comments From Men on Camera | 22 Words

A reporter has recently re-ignited the conversation around harassment after 2 men were caught on camera hurling crude remarks at her right before she was due to go live on air for Spectrum News 1.

Brianna Hamblin shared the incident which was caught on camera by her cameraman who also watched men harass her in Rochester, New York while she was out just trying to do her job.

In the minute-long clip, which she posted to Twitter, you can see Hamblin looking down at her cell phone before men's voices are audible in the background. The men start off by giving her compliments before the conversation starts to escalate into something scarier.

"You look nice by the way," a man says, to which Hamblin replies "thank you" before looking back down at her cellphone. He then walks away.

A second man presses on though, saying, "You're beautiful as hell, goddamn." Hamblin again thanks him politely before turning back to her screen, almost hoping they would leave her alone.

But the second man continues to talk to her, asking why she was on camera and what she was doing. Hamblin tells the men to "go find a TV and watch Spectrum News" to find out, even giving the name of the specific channel so they can watch.

However, that does not stop the man.

"See that's why I can't be left alone with a Black woman," the man replies, adding he can't be controlled around "M*****o" women, a racial phrase referring to people of mixed African and European genes. "Because I can't stand these f****** white girls."

"All right, we are done here," Hamblin tries to close the conversation, clearly uncomfortable. "Have a great rest of your day," but obviously the men don't leave after making one more comment about her appearance.

After the horrific ordeal, Hamblin took to Twitter to share her thoughts writing: "Being hit on and harassed as a woman, especially as a woman reporter out in the field, happens so often you learn how to roll with it or ignore it. This time it happened to be recorded only seconds before my hit. There are A LOT of things wrong with this."

She continues, listing the reasons: "1.If you don't want to be on camera, simply avoid it or ask nicely to not be on camera. Don't walk towards it or make a scene. Who said this was about you?

"2.'Oh, men these days just can't give compliments.' No. The first man's "you look nice" as he continued to walk away is fine. It's the 2nd man who took this to another disgusting level it didn't need to be."

And numbers 3 and 4 discussed why men think it's okay to talk to women in such demeaning and controlling ways.

"3.The audacity of the things men say to me never ceases to amaze me. What makes you think women want to be talked to that way? In no way is this endearing. It's uncomfortable. It's gross.

"Being a Black woman in this industry has its own headaches, but talking down on one group of women to "praise" another group is NEVER okay. It just shows you have a disgusting fetish based on stereotypes, which is just as racist."

Hamblin then wrote that she could go on about the rest of the issues with the interaction but she would rather enjoy her day.

I advise you all to watch the video and take some notes on how not to behave in public, or in private, for that matter.
