Reporter posts video of abuse at Pacquaio v Horn bout
A BRISBANE TV journalist has called out a fan from the Jeff Horn vs. Manny Pacquiao fight for his vulgar treatment of her and her friends during the fight at Suncorp Stadium.
State political reporter for Ten, Tegan George, posted a video on Twitter of the abuse hurled at the three women.
She tweeted: "Never have I or my sports loving girl friends been so badly abused & sexually harassed. Went on for hours."
The video shows a man sitting behind the girls, holding his middle finger up as she filmed him.
"Come on B**ch, f*** off away from me, will ya?" he says to her.
Ms George replies: "Is that how you speak to all women?"
The man replies: "No, only c***s like you."
Ms George's friend Sally told Fairfax the video was "probably the tamest" of what was said to the three women over several hours, with the heckling starting as soon as the women sat down.
She described the behaviour of the group of men sitting behind them as racist, vulgar and sexually explicit.
She said they tried to ignore the group but the "relentless" behaviour only intensified, so she turned to say something to them but was abused.
In the end, the women found police at the stadium, and some of the men were removed from the stadium.
