Sometimes violence is the answer... It certainly was for soccer reporter Maria Fernanda Mora. During a live shot outside a Guadalajara stadium, following a match between Chivas Guadalajara and Toronto FC, the reporter was grouped by a fan, not once, but twice. Realizing the unwanted physical contact was intentional and not an awkward byproduct of the rowdy crowd behind her, Mora takes action on live TV. She spun around and smacked the guy upside the face with her microphone. Very reasonable reaction considering all things.
Mora took to Twitter to explain herself (not that she needed to in our opinion) and said, “The difference is that it happened to me during a live link on television and I decided to defend myself. My reaction is what turned the fact into something viral. I thought, It could be an accidental rubbing because of people’s pushing and I kept talking to the camera. This guy, emboldened because I did not react and kept doing my job, put his hand between my buttocks twice more. I decided to defend myself.”
Hopefully this starts a trend amongst female reporters cause this video is hilarious.
