When I finished [the interview], I turned my mic off…and he reached over and he put his hand on my chest and squeezed. And I’m like, excuse me? And so I just packed my bag and left his office. And he came out to apologize….He grabbed my shoulder and I put my bag down and I decked him. I’m in my late teens/early twenties, and I have just decked the French ambassador to Canada, in the French embassy, in front of his staff. I walked down the stairs and said, don’t ever touch me again.”— Veronica Low
