BBC journalist Sarah Teale was filming a report about the horrifying statistics on public harassment when she became a statistic herself!
Teale was reporting outside a sexual harassment conference in Nottingham, England, saying:
"An online study showed that a shocking 95% of people said they had been harassed, jeered at, or had obscenities shouted at them in the street and a large proportion said they'd also been groped or grabbed inappropriately in public."
Just then, a man walks by, yelling what sounds like the super trite and totally gross, "f**k her right in the p***y!" Teale then motioned to the offender and quipped, "like that."

The perfectly timed catcall raised suspicions, prompting viewers to question if the exchange was staged. But Teale quickly but the speculation to bed, commenting on the video:
"It's not banter, it's not funny and no-one should have to put up with it. It's fairly obvious from my reaction that it wasn't staged. If [cat calling] is a craze it doesn't make it any less offensive."
We totally agree! Check out the clip (below) to take in the offensive irony.
