Woman From Viral Catcalling Video Is Suing for Compensation

Shoshana Roberts, the subject of last October’s viral video about catcalling in New York City, is allegedly suing its director for more than 500k. The footage, which got more than 40 million views on YouTube, shows Roberts walking around New York for 10 hours while men harass her more than 100 times.

TMZ reports that Roberts did not have a written agreement with Rob Bliss, the film’s director. Her attorney would not disclose whether she was paid for her part in the video–just that she believes she didn’t get everything she was promised.

According to TMZ, Roberts also filed suit against Hollaback!, the anti-street harassment group associated with the video, for using her likeness to promote their agenda. She is also reportedly suing Google, YouTube and T.G.I. Friday’s, which used the video in a tone-deaf ad this March.
