Comedian Tracey Ullman tackled the double standard women face when reporting sexual assault in the latest episode of her BBC One show, taking aim at the ludicrous way responsibility is shifted onto the victims of such crimes.
When a well-dressed man tells Ullman, who plays a detective, that he was mugged at knifepoint, the comedian begins investigating his outfit.
“You look quite provocatively wealthy … Just a bit of an invitation, isn’t it? Like you’re advertising,” she says with little sympathy.
Ullman has even less empathy for a man who went to the station to report he’s been receiving threatening emails for months.
The video was posted to Facebook on Sunday and clearly resonated with audiences. At the time of this posting, the video had already gained more than 9 million views and more than 215,000 shares.
“Guys, is dressing provocatively in expensive suits whilst having too much much to drink causing you to get mugged?” the caption of the video asks.
