A video of a woman receiving lots of unwanted attention while walking through the streets of New York City went viral earlier this week, and the Fox News hosts at The Five decided to weigh in.
“Look I’m not going to condone it,” said Eric Bolling, “But I will tell you nothing was disrespectful there.” Bolling went on to add that many of the catcalls were “very complimentary.”
Greg Gutfield wondered whether the video was “classist,” He said, “She’s finding fault with men on the street saying hello to her, which may in fact be their only way of contacting women. It’s their bar and she’s walking through it.”
The hosts did agree that the man who followed her around for five minutes was “terrible.”
As the conversation came to an end Bob Beckel added his two cents. “She got 100 catcalls. Let me add 101,” said Beckel. “Damn, baby, you’re a piece of woman.” He then laughed as Kimberly Guilfoyle talked about men speaking to her on the street, especially when she doesn’t wear a jacket. “You should wear a jacket,” said Beckel.
Hollaback!, an anti-street harassment organization, posted the video as a PSA, recording a woman in jeans a T-shirt walking around New York for 10 hours. Hollaback! said that after the video was posted, the actress featured started receiving rape and death threats in the YouTube comments. The video has been viewed more than 16 million times, as of this writing.
Watch below to see The Five hosts discuss whether or not the video depicted street harassment, as well as the original PSA.
