You may have heard the Erin Andrews story by now, but I’ll refresh your memory if you haven’t. Andrews is a very beautiful reporter for ESPN. Recently, some sick toad filmed her in various stages of undress through a peephole in her hotel room. Said toad then released the video across the ‘net. Insanity ensues, but not from the people you would think.
Erin Andrews is an ESPN reporter. Some sick person planted hidden cameras in her hotel room and splashed video of her while she was dressing all over the Internet.
Andrews happens to be young, beautiful, and a stylish dresser — prompting USA Today columnist Christine Brennan to write on Twitter that Andrews is essentially to blame for the appalling invasion of her privacy.
(Cue Moesha voice.) “Oh, no she didn’t!”
Yes, she did:
Women sports journalists need to be smart and not play to the frat house. There are tons of nuts out there.
Erin Andrews incident is bad, but to add perspective: there are 100s of women sports journalists who have never had this happen to them.
What the Hell is wrong with people? First, you have some sick bastard filming Andrews through a peephole and selling the video to anyone and everyone. That’s bad enough. Then, you have one of Andrews’ peers claiming that she brought this on herself because she’s attractive! Pretty ig’nant, if you ask me.
Stay classy, Ms. Brennan. I am sure you are the pride of the USA Today editorial staff.
