The next ‘Hawk Tuah’ girl? Woman slams ESPN after TV cameras filmed her eating ice cream at College World Series – leading to ‘disgusting, sexualized’ comments on TikTok

A TikTok user has taken ESPN to task for giving “creeps” the opportunity to sexualize them by eating ice cream during the College World Series in Omaha.

During a game between Texas A&M and Tennessee earlier this week, ESPN had “Annie” and her friend eating ice cream behind the dugout to combat the high temperatures in the ballpark.

However, things took a nasty turn when the clip went viral and a barrage of inappropriate comments were made on the video – including comparisons to the now infamous ‘Hawk Tuah’ meme.

“It was a 20-second segment of just us licking our ice cream,” Annie says in the video of her slamming the channel. ‘Twenty seconds dedicated to – with commentary – just us eating our ice cream. We all knew which way the video would go.

“Lo and behold, the creeps of TikTok got a handle on it because we woke up and were compared to the Hawk Tuah girl. There’s no shade for her, girl, do whatever.”

Hailey Welch gained virality thanks to an infamous street interview that earned her the nickname “Hawk Tuah girl.”

In an interview with creators Tim & Dee TV, Welch was asked, “What’s one move in bed that drives a man crazy every time?” Her reaction, which resembled the spitting part of a sex act, spawned the X-rated phrase.

“When I tell you, the comments section of that video is absolutely disgusting,” Annie continued. ‘To know that there are people who have families in their profiles and in their profile pictures they are just smiling with the children they are raising. I feel sorry for them and their father.’

“I don’t know about you guys,” user lil_wolf wrote. “But double duty is better than one hawktoeah, in my opinion.”

“That’s hawk-ona-a and hawk-twee-a,” wrote user xpressomedic.

User Corey Cadell suggested: ‘What we all want to know is why they’re not in the kitchen! Making that delicious ice cream!’

Other comments in a sea of ​​plenty included the phrases “lick and slurp” and one user who asked, “Do they sell frozen bananas?”

“It’s so obvious that women are not welcome in the sports world,” Annie continued after pointing out that she isn’t one to rant in videos.

She also explained that she doesn’t feel the need to justify going to a baseball game. Annie talked about how she grew up playing softball, her father played baseball and her friend’s brother also played America’s favorite pastime.

“We just wanted to enjoy a baseball game,” she said. “And it was 100 degrees, so God forbid we eat ice cream. It’s like we can’t sit down and eat our food.’

Annie also claimed that she had to be careful when eating a hot dog during the competition. Sitting near the dugout, she knew how vulnerable she was to the broadcast cameras and the possibility of being sexualized for the food.

“I had just eaten a hot dog ten minutes before,” she said.

“And I made sure I ate it in front of the row of people sitting in front of us. I was shocked that if a single camera captured that, this would happen.”

“But no, instead we literally let down our security for five seconds and the ice melted comically quickly. We hadn’t even been in our seats for fifteen seconds when they started filming us.’

“I don’t have Taylor Swift’s relevance at all. But what is proven time and time again is that women simply cannot exist in these spaces without being commented on or drawn to.”

“Like I was doing something wrong, trying to avoid heat exhaustion.”

“Within minutes we saw our faces on the phones of people sitting around us laughing about it,” Annie revealed. “I can only imagine what was in those texts.”

Additionally, Annie commented on how ESPN routinely surveils women during sporting events. She also posted a comment that read, “No, ESPN needs to be called out because we know exactly why they did that.”

“What’s funnier than a woman licking an ice cream cone or eating a hot dog or anything that can be overly sexualized? But ESPN can keep it vague enough and it’s that ambiguity that protects them. If they just open the door and creeps like that come in and do whatever they want with them.”

“So maybe we’re just doing a better job and not knowingly making videos of women in the crowd at sporting events doing this.”

“So to ESPN,” she said before pausing and turning off the camera. “Just stop contributing to the issue. And stop making sports a place where women don’t feel safe and welcome.”

Concluding her five-minute video, Annie said the broadcast could have been panned to them at any point during the nine innings. She suggested that ESPN should have been on screen as they fanned themselves and cheered. Furthermore, she emphasized how the focus should have been on the game in the first place.

‘We cannot eat in peace. We cannot wear clothes in peace,” she claimed. “We literally can’t do anything without it being sexualized or absolutely taken out of context.”

“When I say I’m making a big deal out of it and there are more important things to focus on, I agree,” Annie continued. “Namely the national championship game we came to watch.”

“So don’t say we’re making it about ourselves, when you’re doing it for us. Be better at your job ESPN.”
