In India, it is not unusual for women to experience eve teasing. While this issue exists in various countries, the deeply ingrained sexism in India cannot be denied. Such offensive conduct is also commonly witnessed during IPL matches, where incidents of individuals harassing cricketers’ wives on social media and cameramen excessively focusing on women’s faces rather than the game are frequently observed. It is distressing to see how women are subjected to such reprehensible treatment in society, while others continue with their lives without showing concern.
A man records himself while harassing IPL cheerleaders and posts it online.
A video capturing the harassment of IPL cheerleaders has gained tremendous traction on the internet in recent times. In the video, a man can be seen recording himself making derogatory remarks towards the cheerleaders and shamelessly sharing it online. The original origin of the video remains unclear, but numerous cricket and meme pages have shared it, strongly denouncing this despicable behavior.
In the video, the man can be observed shouting to gain the attention of the cheerleaders who are standing in a queue. He repeatedly addresses them with greetings, which catches the interest of a foreigner who smiles and waves back at him. However, the situation takes an unpleasant turn when the man starts speaking in Hindi.
“Aap ko dekhne aye hai hum. Match toh kabhi bhi dekh sakte hai TV pe”
Despite the girls engaging in their own conversation, the man persistently records them without their consent and proceeds to make further inappropriate comments. Displaying a sense of entitlement, he loudly exclaims, indicating a disregard for the privacy and dignity of the individuals involved.

Not only did he brazenly record the incident, but he also shamelessly yelled in the video, questioning whether the cheerleaders had never encountered a “handsome” man before. Since the video was shared, it has garnered significant attention from people who strongly condemn this repugnant behavior.

Here is what netizens had to say about the video,
Despite the widespread condemnation, there are unfortunately still individuals who attempt to justify such incidents by dismissing them as “jokes” or resorting to the phrase “Not All Men.” However, it is important to recognize that it does not require the actions of every single man to cause harm. The actions of a significant number of men are more than sufficient to perpetuate such damage..
