"Creepy S--t"

Sophia Bush writes note to ‘random dude’ who harassed her on a plane

September 19, 2016

Sophia Bush, the actress and star of Chicago PD, took to Twitter on Friday to share a troubling experience she had with a “random dude” who harassed her on a plane. In her note, she addressed the man directly telling him he has no right to keep accosting a woman once she’s made it clear that the attention is unwanted. “When you make a woman so visibly uncomfortable, that after you’ve ignored all visual cues to please leave her alone (one word answers, she pulls out a book, puts on a hat, she actually asks you not to speak to her with the tone and words you’re choosing to use) that she finally GETS UP and MOVES SEATS, leave her alone,” she wrote. “Do not continue trying to make conversation.” She continued to point out that her fame does not entitle him to any special access to her, writing, “And in my case, stop believing that you are entitled to make me uncomfortable because you ‘watch my TV show’ so I owe you some magical debt,” she wrote. “I make it, you watch it. After that, the ‘exchange’ is done. You do not get to harass me, or any woman, because you think you pay our bills. You don’t bro, I DO.” Showing that she’s aware that the experience of being bothered by oblivious men who don’t know when to stop is a universal one, she signed off with “Signed, Every Woman On The Planet Who Is Sick of Your Creepy S–t.”
