If you haven’t seen the viral video of a woman walking through the streets of New York for 10 hours and being cat-called or worse at least 100 times, you’re bound to view it sooner or later. It’s been all over the web this week, and now, Funny or Die gives a spin on it featuring a white man. The result is funny–not because it mimics the other video (making fun of harassment would not be funny)–because it demonstrates that stereotypes and white privilege exist in a major way. Which is not as funny as it is sad, but sometimes, all we can do is find something funny…or die.
