Men Read Mean Tweets to Women Journalists' Faces


If you don't feel disgusted after reading this video, I really don't know what to tell you. As part of its #MoreThanMean campaign, the Just Not Sports network had men come in and read insulting, harassing, and typically vile tweets to female sports reporters Julie DiCaro and Sarah Spain.

Oh yes, the tweets are about DiCaro and Spain.

The men reading these didn't write the tweets, and you can tell, as some get choked up having to share someone's horrible thoughts directly to the reporters' faces.

Perhaps even more outrageous are the comments on the video itself, which are equally as terrible as what's in the video, if not worse. It's almost enough to make you give up on humanity completely, but then you see the guys in this video expressing remorse, and you feel a little bit better.

Remember, everyone: regardless of your gender or the gender of the person you're talking to, it's still a real human being on the other end of your post. Just because you're typing it into a computer, don't think it won't have any effect.

Before we all get too bummed out, here's a video of puppies and babies playing together.
