This Is What Walking Through NYC As A White Man Is Like
Street harassment via Funny Or Die.
According to Funny Or Die's new video — capturing one day's worth of footage — the average white guy experiences over 100 instances of privilege while walking through Manhattan. The film's creators even had to edit out many instances of fist bumps. Made in response to the recent Hollaback! campaign video (which captured 100 examples of street harassment aimed at a woman), the film was dropped overnight, amist a whole bunch of people both supporting and criticising the original film.
SNL cast member Michael Che told Instagram, "I wanna apologise to all the women that I've harrassed with statements like 'hi' or 'have a nice day' or 'you're beautiful'. I can't imagine what that must feel like." He later apologised for the remarks on Twitter.
Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh didn't find the original video problematic at all, telling his radio show listeners, "I was expecting some real boorish, sexist, dangerous — I was expecting some real, real rotten conduct by guys. I didn't see that. I saw, 'Hey baby,' 'Looking good today, girl,' 'Have a good day.'"
Meanwhile, the plight of this guy goes unnoticed. Watch!
