When Did Men In Media Fail Famous Women?

Here's looking at you, David Letterman.

Last week, FX/Hulu dropped The New York Times Presents: Framing Britney Spears. It sparked a big conversation around the media's effect on her career, especially the inappropriate behavior from men.

The toxic behavior by men in media has unfortunately been a common thread in how famous women have been perceived in the public eye for years.

This made me want to ask you, dear reader: When did men in media fail a female celebrity?

From horrific interviews to tweets to award show moments.

For example, David Letterman has been known to make problematic jokes at the expense of famous women, like Lindsay Lohan.

And Piers Morgan is notorious for mistreating famous women on Twitter, like Chrissy Teigen, Jameela Jamil, and Ariana Grande.

And Mike Wallace was famously horrible to his female guests, like Barbra Streisand and Tina Turner, and disregarded their boundaries.
