Reporter inappropriately smacked on live television during marathon has the best come back

A reporter had the best response for a a gross guy after he smacked her butt during a live broadcast.

A reporter for WSAV, Alex Bozarjian, was covering a local charity running race in Savannah, Georgia, on December 7.

While nearby joggers photobomed her piece, one man overstepped his boundaries by slapping her butt.

The reporter was of course very affected by the slap as she was silent before carrying on.

Bozarjian later found a clip of the incident and posted it to Twitter. She retweeted the video with the caption:

“To the man who smacked my butt on live TV this morning: You violated, objectified, and embarrassed me. No woman should EVER have to put up with this at work or anywhere!! Do better.”

The posting since went viral with thousands offering their support to the reporter.

The Savannah Sports Council eventually responded to the clip with its director Robert Wells writing:

“This will not be tolerated at our events. Glad we have race bibs and photos for easy identification.”

The council continued, writing in a series of tweets the following:

“Yesterday at the Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run a reporter from WSAV was inappropriately touched by a registered participant of the event. Our title sponsor, Enmarket and the Savannah Sports Council take this matter extremely seriously and fully condemn this individual’s actions. Yesterday afternoon we identified him and shared his information with the reporter and her station. We will not tolerate behavior like this at a Savannah Sports Council event. We have made the decision to ban this individual from registering for all Savannah Sports Council owned races.”

In addition, the council also replied directly to Bozarjian, writing:

“Alex, please know that this behavior will not be tolerated and proper action will be taken once the individual has been identified.”
