Video: reporter shocked as man hits her butt on live TV

A TV reporter has blasted a runner for smacking her bottom in the middle of a live broadcast. Alex Bozarjian was covering a charity running race in Savannah, Georgia, for a local TV station when a man slapped her backside.

She was unfazed by a handful of jokey attempts to photobomb her coverage but was shocked by the sickening stunt on Saturday.

Ms Bozarjian condemned him on Twitter, writing: ‘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.’

Fellow reporter Emily Block of The Florida Times-Union replied: ‘This is disgusting. Sending strength and solidarity your way. Now, let’s get this grimy dude and warn the women in his life.’

ABC News 13 journalist Caitlyn Penter wrote: ‘DO NOT TOUCH REPORTERS. Period.’

The director of race organisers Savannah Sports Council, Robert Wells, condemned the incident as ‘100% unacceptable’ and promised to identify the runner. He suggested photo evidence and race bib numbering would make it easy to trace him.

Some social media users appeared to have found the identity of a man with identical clothes and a matching race bib, although the authorities haven’t confirmed if it’s him.
