Television journalist Maggie Raworth was just doing her job, presenting a piece to camera for Nine News outside Victoria’s Ballarat Court, when a random stranger began harassing her.
He started in on journalists in general…
“You chose to be a journalist, there’s a million and one jobs in this world and you chose to be a lying piece of sh*t for a living,” the unshaven man in a beanie and dark sunglasses began, as recorded by Nine and shared on Raworth’s Facebook page.
“I make 10 times the f*cking money you do, get a real job,” the random man continued, walking up to Raworth and giving her the finger.
(First up: It’s mid-morning on a Monday and this man has nothing better to do than abuse people doing their jobs. So… there’s that.)
But he wasn’t done. No where near done.
Not only had this man shouted at Raworth from his car. Parked his car. Got out of his car for the sole purpose of telling Raworth how “dishonourable” her job is… He still went on to comment on the 24-year-old television journalist’s appearance.
