The real story behind Victoria Justice’s ‘Footy Footy’ video – The New York Times
Posted On June 21, 2021
Posted November 13, 2018 06:59:20Victoria Justice’s footy footy video, filmed during a court appearance last year in her native Melbourne, has been hailed as a “wake-up call” for young Australians who are afraid to go out for sport.
In the video, which has gone viral on YouTube and other platforms, Ms Justice is seen with her head in her hands as she sits in a police van outside the High Court.
The video was shot in March this year, the month before Ms Justice was due to appear in the Supreme Court.
In it, Ms Huntley appears to mock the police and says “if they don’t shoot me, I will run into the police station”.
The video went viral in March and has been viewed more than 30 million times.
In a statement, Ms Hunter said the video was “very personal” and that she had been “overwhelmed by the reaction” to it.
“I want to apologise to those who have watched it and those who were watching it.
I was overwhelmed,” Ms Hunter told the ABC.
“I was shocked by the reactions to it and I understand the anger and frustration that it has caused.”
Victoria Justice has taken an important stance on bullying and the bullying culture, and that is something that we want to stand up against.
But the truth is the video has been shared widely, including on social media and the media, and the response has been great.
It has also been shared by a number of the media.
“She said the public had been given the opportunity to speak out about bullying, and she would continue to do so.”
There is a community that is struggling with bullying and I would urge them to speak up,” Ms Huntleys statement said.”
The response to the video will be what it will be in the long term.
“It has been a wake-up for me to know that people are so engaged with the video that they can get to the truth of it.
This video is a wake up call.”
Ms Justice has also received support from Victoria Police, who released a statement saying she was “taken aback” by the response.
“We have always stood for the equal treatment of all Australians, including those who may be the victim of bullying, harassment or intimidation, and we stand in full support of Victoria’s position on bullying,” a Victoria Police spokesperson said.
Mr Justice told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation he was shocked at the response of the community to the footage.
“That’s not how the community should respond to something like this, so I’m quite shocked that it was accepted so easily, and I’m disappointed that so many people thought that way,” he said.
“I have been told by a lot of people that I have been a hero for standing up for those who are being bullied.”
And I think the fact that it’s a positive response to something that may have been so shocking and traumatic, is something I have learnt from and will always learn from.
“So I will always stand up for them.”
Ms Hunter has been contacted for comment.
