As CTV Kitchener journalist Krista Sharpe filmed a stand-up on a sidewalk on Jan. 18, 2021, someone driving by screamed a sexist obscenity at her.
“This still happens to female reporters everywhere and it needs to stop,” she said in a tweet.
The incident is one of many similar instances of sexual harassment targeting women journalists.
“The harassment that was directed at Krista Sharpe is clearly offensive and not to be tolerated,” said CTV owner Bell Media in a statement.
Waterloo Regional Police opened an investigation into the incident, reported CBC.
