She was a model dressed up in tight jeans and a snug top then sent down seedier streets just to make a video to fake outrage.

I don't know what video you were watching. In this one, the woman wasn't wearing revealing or otherwise sexy clothes. She was dressed like a normal young woman walking around NYC.

And, in any case, people can wear what they want. There is nothing this woman could wear that would justify harassment.

I like how women are saying "oh, so should I be forced to wear a burlap sack??" as if those are the only two options. "Hm, I could wear these form-fitting jeans that are so tight that you can see my panty lines through the denim so I have to create thong panties to combat that ...or a burlap sack." And then they wonder why we make fun of them.

She wasn't a model, wasn't wearing any of these things, and wasn't walking in seedy areas. Wrong on all counts.

I didn't notice anything unusual with her mode of dressing. A T-shirt and jeans are normal. And again, your theory doesn't explain anything, because if she'd walked through better neighborhoods, nothing would have happened. I'd like to see parts of the video where she did that. Out of 10 hours, she must've gone through some nice neighborhoods. My take on it is more along the lines that most students or young women her age wouldn't have gone into those neighborhoods we saw, and for exactly the reason the film showed.

She's an actress and they deliberately picked someone with a large rack and a large butt who wore tight clothes. I'm going to estimate she has a C cup at least. Anyone else have any guesses?

Where did it say she's an actress? I didn't find her attractive, frankly. She's plain in the face. And how do you know what kind of butt she has? And in those black clothes, it's hard to discern much of anything. She has an average rack. She looks like an average, generic, university student. There's nothing unusual about her at all. Send her on a walk through any of the universities in NYC, and no one would approach her. She'd blend into the crowd. Even if they reshoot the film in the same neighborhoods with her wearing looser jeans, that wouldn't change anything.

Just curious are you a man or woman?

You can look her up on Google. She's identified as a "bubbly and bold actress," LOL. She's got a huge ass and her rack is bigger than average.

That's no joke. True story--and it is still hard for me to believe. I was walking home from work--6 pm, still daylight on 2nd Ave, upper east side. A regular looking guy just stopped right in front of me and in a perfectly normal tone of voice said "you wanna give me a bl*w job?" I was so shocked that my first reaction was to look around for a cop and there weren't any, so I just walked around him--but I was shaking all the way home.

I also had a perfectly respectable looking guy try to pick me up on the street and follow me home, so of course then you can't go home as he will know where you live, so I had to walk around until I knew he was gone. He started off with "I'm a photographer--are you a model?" (again in my business clothes and obviously not). They think if they come at you with ridiculous flattery it will work-- I'm ok, but I am well aware I do not look like a model. Harassment on the street is real and it is not "welcomed."
