College football fans were back in the stands this weekend to watch their favorite teams open their 2021 season.
With thousands of fans back in stadiums and the beer flowing, the excitement was evident, but it clearly became way too much for one reporter.
Lyndsey Gough, the sports director for WTOC11 in Georgia, shared a disturbing video of her live shot from the Georgia vs. Clemson game as male fans could be seen not only touching her but invading her space as well.
She was clearly uncomfortable.
“After the first guy touched me I started rolling… this isn’t even all of it. So uncomfortable. Can we please respect people’s space,” she tweeted.
“Many times reporters are expected to do these live shots alone (often at night) with no photographer and no crowd control assistance. Please folks…we get that you’re excited about the game, but as she said…respect her space. She cannot see you coming up behind her,” ESPN’s Jenna Laine tweeted.
Georgia defeated the Tigers 10-3.
