So of course, Beckel delivered Wednesday on Fox’s “The Five” as the hosts discussed a viral anti-catcall video.
An anti-street harassment organization called Hollaback! posted a PSA this week that captures the catcalls one woman received while walking the streets of New York City for 10 hours in nothing fancier than jeans and a T-shirt. Rape threats against the woman in the video started appearing in the video’s YouTube comments soon after.
Co-hosts Eric Bolling and Greg Gutfeld said they thought the majority of the recorded catcalls weren’t disrespectful, but they agreed that one “terrible” man who followed around the woman in the video for several minutes was probably guilty of harassment.
Beckel’s contribution to the discussion, however, was less constructive.
“She got 100 catcalls, let me add 101,” he chimed in. “Damn, baby, you’re a piece of woman.”
