WATCH: CNN Host Debate To Catcalling Video – Male Contributor's Response Offends EVERYONE
Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past week, a recent video highlighting one woman’s attempts to walk through New York while being catcalled has been doing the rounds online. Amongst issues of respect and etiquette, the video has sparked anger over women’s safety and rights.
So when a male guest contributor on CNN, who was brought on to debate the message behind the viral video, started sharing some of his views there was some definite tension in the studio.
Steve Santagti and Amanda Seales were invited onto the show to discuss the catcalling video, when Santagi suggested that women wouldn’t be upset if the men calling out to them were attractive.
The author later advises women upset by catcalling to be “strong” and “carry a gun”. He also added that women “love nothing more than being told how pretty they are”.
Needless to say, his co-contributors were less than impressed with his opinion.
The eight minute clip is now on its way to being a viral sensation all of its own accord.
