A viral TikTok video shows Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney being catcalled during her Met Gala 2022 performance. The 24-year-old actress was allegedly harassed by a male photographer or reporter at the Metropolitan Museum of Art while posing for shots.
A TikToker shared a video from the New York Times Fashion & Style account showing Sweeney being sexually accosted on the red carpet. In the now-viral TikTok, someone asks Sydney, “Does anyone have boobs like you?” “Come on, show us those boobs!” says another subsequent comment. Sweeney seemed to react briefly to the remark before laughing it off.
In the viral video, angry netizens argue that the person who made the statements should have been asked to leave. Several internet users stated that Sweeney did not deserve to be harassed at a major event like the Met Gala.
During the second season of Euphoria, Sweeney, who plays Cassie Howard, claimed that her nude scenes in the series prevent people from recognising her performance. “I’m quite happy of my work in ‘Euphoria,'” Sweeney told The Independent in January. I thought it was fantastic. Because I got naked.”
