This Hilarious Sketch Flips The Script On Blaming Women For Being Victims Of Violent Crimes

"Just a bit of an invitation, isn’t it? Like you’re advertising."

A recent sketch from Tracey Ullman's Show is no laughing matter.

The British comedian and women's rights activist tackled the topic of victim-blaming often associated with women reporting violent crimes and harassment. But instead of grilling a woman about her clothing, appearance and alcohol consumption, Ullman puts a man in the hot seat.

"You look quite provocatively wealthy," said Ullman, who played the character of a detective interviewing the man who's reporting being robbed. "Just a bit of an invitation, isn't it? Like you're advertising."

She goes on to indicate that depending on how much he'd had to drink, "it could send confusing signals."

The skit, entitled "Mugged," was shared on BBC Comedy's Facebook page and has since garnered more than 30 million views.

"Guys, is dressing provocatively in expensive suits whilst having too much to drink causing you to get mugged?" the video was captioned.
