ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews has been an internet sensation for several years. She's put up with a lot of leering, and was even lustily embraced by Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl, the sweatiest man in sports. Since she puts herself in the public eye and presumably makes a nice salary, a lot of this is just part of the natural price of being a celebrity.
But now it's gone too far. Last week, someone took videotape of Erin completely naked and posted it on the internet. Was this an act of betrayal from some ex-boyfriend? No, it seems a stranger took the video through a keyhole on her hotel room door!
Erin Andrews is a juicy little tomato, but this was a criminal and immoral invasion of her privacy. She can't even undress in her hotel room without worrying about someone filming her? That's just really sad.
I rarely take the high ground when it comes to female nudity, but in this case I definitely will. Although lawyers have made sure the video is off of the site that "broke" the news, it's most likely still out there; but I'm not looking at it. There are plenty of willingly nude ladies on the internet, some so willing it's almost tragic.
