On Sunday, Canadian reporter Shauna Hunt crossed paths with Toronto FC fans after falling victim to a vulgar prank on live television. She was humiliated by a group of males while she was interviewing fans after a soccer match. The CityNews reporter said she is tired of being harassed on duty.
The man involved in the prank was identified as Shawn Simoes, a Toronto engineer. He was soon fired from his job for laughing after a stranger said “f*ck her right in the p*ssy” on live TV.
The unpleasant exchange was caught on camera, and the video of the prank went viral online. Social media also slammed the incident.
“It’s a disgusting thing to say, it’s degrading to women,” Hunt said to one of the men who described the incident as entertaining and harmless.
“You would humiliate me on live television?” she asked.
The now out-of-work engineer seemed totally unfazed with the incident and instead, continued to say disgraceful comments.
As seen in the video, he said, “I don’t care, it’s… hilarious.”
“My mom would die laughing,” Simoes snapped back after Hunt asked him what his mother would say.
In an interview, Hunt said that facing humiliation at work has become a routine, and it’s time to take a stand.
“Every single day, people are yelling this at us. Men drive by and roll down their car windows and just yell it at you on the street,” she said.
