Young men yell FHRITP at CBC reporter in Montebello, Que.
Two young men yell vulgar phrase during on-camera interview
Two young men shouted a vulgar comment at a CBC Ottawa reporter doing an on-camera interview in Montebello, Que., on Thursday.
Ashley Burke was in the western Quebec community to report on a music festival being held there this weekend when someone ran behind her and the woman she was talking to and yelled "f—k her right in the p---y," an trend also known online as FHRITP.
That young man eventually apologized to both after being spoken to, only to have another young man yell FHRITP again.
The FHRITP meme was born from a comedy skit and adapted by people around the world, mostly men.
A Hydro One employee was fired after being involved in such an incident involving a CityNews reporter while she was working at a Toronto FC soccer game last month.
Police departments and lawyers have said mischief or disturbance charges could come for people who yell FHRITP.
Local police are aware of the incident in Montebello.
