The harassment starts with sentences like, "You look nice by the way,"

Hamblin responds with a thank you but the men escalate the scenario and continue harassing her.

You're beautiful as hell, goddamn."

They then continue to question her and ask what she was doing. The man then says, “See that's why I can't be left alone with a Black woman. Because I can't stand these f****** white girls."

Hamblin tries to shut down the conversation, “Alright we’re done here. Have a great rest of your day.”

When Hamblin uploaded the video to Twitter, she said, “Being hit on and harassed as a woman, especially as a woman reporter out in the field, happens so often you learn how to roll with it or ignore it. This time it happened to be recorded only seconds before my hit. There are A LOT of things wrong with this."

She further adds,

"1.If you don't want to be on camera, simply avoid it or ask nicely to not be on camera. Don't walk towards it or make a scene. Who said this was about you?"

"2.'Oh, men these days just can't give compliments.' No. The first man's "you look nice" as he continued to walk away is fine. It's the 2nd man who took this to another disgusting level it didn't need to be."

"3. The audacity of the things men say to me never ceases to amaze me. What makes you think women want to be talked to that way? In no way is this endearing. It's uncomfortable. It's gross.

"Being a Black woman in this industry has its own headaches, but talking down on one group of women to "praise" another group is NEVER okay. It just shows you have a disgusting fetish based on stereotypes, which is just as racist."
