The Huffington Post has reported on a video showing a man sexually harassing a woman and then getting beat up by her: http://m.huffpost.com/au/entry/9792076

It looks fake. For example the harasser tries to grab her breast by reaching over her shoulder rather than reaching around her, which doesn't seem practical, and it seems strange for an incident to have been noticed by the owner of the closed circuit TV footage (not to mention being leaked to the internet, and also reaching English-language media in a couple of days), unless one of the two reported the incident.

Is this video genuine, or is it staged?

  • I don't know. Looks real enough to me. That initial slap is pretty convincing. The other blows as well, upon review. – fredsbend Apr 29 '16 at 11:38
  • Would there be any way to prove authenticity? The way I see it, this question can be answered only in one case — there is evidence that this is staged. – vartec Apr 29 '16 at 20:11
  • @vartec the media contacting those involved or the owner of the footage I guess. – Andrew Grimm Apr 29 '16 at 22:45
  • Right, but what I'm saying is that media not confirming that with the involved is not enough to say that it's staged. – vartec Apr 29 '16 at 22:48
  • @vartec checking if it's staged could involve finding out who posted the video and seeing if they had form for staged videos. – Andrew Grimm Apr 29 '16 at 22:54
