“Bachelor” alum Bekah Martinez said that she was recently sexually assaulted while walking her children on Friday. Martinez identified the culprit as a teenage boy, detailing her painful experience on Instagram.
“I was just out taking a walk, looking like this, pushing my sleeping baby and holding hands with my toddler, when a teenager skateboarded by and grabbed my a**.”
In the photo Martinez was wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt and brown shorts. She admitetd that she felt helpess and wanted to “do something” to show him his wrong.
“I felt totally powerless as I screamed at him ‘THAT IS NOT OKAY. WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU?’ I wanted to chase him down and pull him off his skateboard. Punch him in the back. Do something, anything to get through to him that what he did was so wrong.”
Martinez’s daughter also was worried about her mother.
“Ruth was so shaken. She kept repeating in her 2-year-old voice, ‘you otay, mommy?’ I’m not okay. I’m mad.”
Martinez also detailed her disgust at the perps behavior, as he had the audacity to pull the move in broad daylight while she was with her family. She also spoke about a similar experience when she was just 21 years old.
“I remember being alone on the beach at 21 when a man walked up to me with his d–k in his hand. I felt helpless then, too. I hate this. I hate that this is the world my daughter will grow up in.”
“I don’t care what you have to do to teach your sons to respect the people around them. Threaten to chop their b***s off, I don’t give a f–k,But I hate knowing that there are predators around every turn, every corner. And the world will always be unsafe for women.”
We are disheartened by this horrifying experience that Bekah had to go through. We laud her for speaking up against sexual harassment that is still rampant even in 2021.
