Harassment at the mall isn't actually funny, group says6/18/2012
A company doing construction on a Princeton, N.J. mall may have gotten too cute for its own good with a sign that apologizes to customers for the mess created as builders renovate. The sign, from E. Allen Reeves Construction Company, says, "We apologize for the whistling construction workers, but man you look good!" and Holly Kearl of Stop Street Harassment has launched an online petition seeking to have it taken down, claiming the sign misconstrues sexual harassment as a joke and even a compliment. Her group calls the sign especially offensive given the number of teenage girls who frequent the mall, and so far, the petition has received more than 1,000 signatures.
Do you think the sign promotes harassment?
