Can you believe it? He threw her down on the ground and damn near raped her right on camera.

Complaint filed with RCMP after CBC reporter kissed by stranger on camera at Squamish festival | Globalnews.ca

Oh wait, no he didn't. He gave her a quick kiss on the cheek and took a selfie...... but I guess that's close enough.

CBC reporter 'rattled' after getting unwanted kiss live on air

SQUAMISH, B.C. -- Another television reporter doing a live report received a jarring distraction after a man kissed her on the cheek.
CBC reporter Megan Batchelor was covering a music festival in Squamish, B.C., north of Vancouver, on Friday when the incident happened.
She was doing a live hit for the network's 6 p.m. newscast when video the network aired shows the man came up from behind, kissed her on the cheek and took a selfie.
The CBC quotes Batchelor as saying she was "rattled" by the encounter and felt like the unidentified man was trying to interfere with her ability to do her job.
The broadcaster is reporting that Batchelor has made a complaint to the RCMP and the network is asking anyone who knows the identity of the man to contact police.
The CBC said in an emailed statement on Sunday that Friday's incident is another example of a disturbing trend and the network will do everything it can to ensure its journalists are safe when reporting from the field.
The RCMP says it has taken statements from Bachelor, a CBC cameraman and a witness, but the head of the Squamish RCMP detachment said tips from the public would be key in helping police to identify the man.
"We really have no other recourse than to seek the assistance of the public," said Staff Sgt. Brian Cumming.
It's unclear what charges might be laid in the case -- Cumming declined to speculate, noting that in British Columbia unlike other provinces, police must refer the case to the Crown and prosecutors decide on laying charges.
There have been a number of incidents recently where female television reporters have been the subject of abuse from people passing by.
An employee with the Ontario electrical utility Hydro One was let go earlier this year after he shouted crude remarks to a Toronto reporter who works for Citytv.

Generally, intentionally touching someone without that person's consent is a crime and a tort. Even when you don't think it's a big deal.

Any unwanted touching or advances toward a person known or unknown
are subject to charges if pressed. Kissing her with a selfie is the same
as groping her in the eyes of the law.
This is a situation where a person is doing their job and is is at a disadvantage
of not being able to defend themselves from an unwanted sexual advance.
I would think an adult would know this and this creep is an adult.
It does not matter what job you hold a reporter or a Doctor or a cop or anything
else. I think she should press charges.
Some people now a days seem to think any kind of behavior is acceptable and
its not. This is not about some prank its about respect and the law and the law
was violated because she did not want the sexual advance.
As for Trudeau I don't like the guy but the difference is most if not all these public
displays on a campaign trail when it comes to cheer leaders and staged scenes
they are pr-approved and if not he too could be charged

Teen apologizes to CBC reporter Megan Batchelor for unwanted kiss - British Columbia - CBC News

Think folks will let this go now?

Yeah, probably not.

But this crap has just got to stop. Really.

On the one side you've got idiotic, juvenile one-ups-manship (really, never a good combination of words). And on the other side.....My Gawd, the drama and the angst.

People don't need to loose their jobs, or suffer over blown internet public shaming. They don't need to share their suffering. They just need to grow the fuk up.
