  • Sportswriters Sarah Spain and Julie DiCaro invited several men to read some mean tweets to their face, but they didn't expect to see the cruelty these women have to face every day.

    From casual sexism to rape and death threats, both women had seen and read all of the tweets sent to them in the video. However, the men in the video had no idea what they were getting into. All of them were ashamed, and even apologized on behalf of the men who sent the abusive tweets.

    The whole video is to bring light to a Twitter campaign entitled "#Morethanmean" which confronts the issued faced by women who have suffered similar abuse.
