A sports reporter has been captured on camera hitting a male football fan with her microphone after he acted inappropriately live on air.
Fox Sports Mexico journalist Maria Fernanda Mora was reporting live outside the Guadalajara stadium when the incident took place. The local team had just beaten Toronto, the Daily Mail reports, meaning that spirits were high and the area was extremely crowded.
But one fan took his celebrations too far, with Mora claiming he touched her inappropriately while everyone was jumping around – leading her to turn around and thwack him with her microphone, much to the football fan’s surprise.
In a statement on Twitter, Mora said that she didn’t regret her reaction ‘at all’, adding that women ‘will not be quiet’ about sexual harassment.
Some Twitter users have blasted Mora for apparently wanting her five minutes of fame. However, several other high profile Mexican presenters have come out in support of Mora, while many other Twitter users have also written messages to Mora in solidarity.
