Everything Is Terrible: Woman In Catcalling Video Gets Rape Threats On YouTube

Misogyny just doesn’t exist! Catcalls are compliments! SMILE SWEETHEART. Tell that to Shoshanna B. Roberts, the New York City-based actress who starred in yesterday’s viral street harassment video (posting it again, above, because it’s worth watching multiple times), who then received rape threats in the comments section on YouTube. Hollaback, the anti-street harassment org. that made the video, tweeted about the harassment yesterday, asking followers to report/flag the comments with threats and they have, thankfully, since been deleted. Unfortunately, there are still plenty of dudes (and, yes, some women too) excusing the 100+ comments from strangers Roberts received as no biggie. So, you know, fuck everything. [Jezebel]
