For Pete's Sake

Men read hateful, ugly tweets to female reporters in powerful PSA

Part of the joy of writing this blog is scouring social media for the fun, strange, odd, gotta-watch posts that people share.

Unfortunately, it’s one of the downsides, too.

There is all sorts of ugliness on social media channels. The website Just Not Sports had reporters Sarah Spain and Julie DiCaro sit down and have men read some of the ugly tweets that have been sent to them. The men didn’t write the tweets and they had not seen them before.

The result is a public-service announcement video that everyone needs to see.
