A powerful new video going viral across the internet is exposing the hateful and derogatory messages female sports reporters receive online on a regular basis.
In the video, which was shared to YouTube on Monday and has already collected over a million views, sports journalists Julie DiCaro and Sarah Spain ask men sitting across from them to read some of the comments they have received online.
The segment starts out as a lighthearted, Jimmy Kimmel-esque “Mean Tweets” sketch, but the messages quickly become much more disturbing. The men don’t feel comfortable reading what’s in front of them, and they regularly apologize for what they’ve just said.
“You wouldn’t say it to their faces,” the video reads. “So let’s not type it.”
