'Drunk Girl' In Viral Hoax Video On Hollywood Blvd. Says She Was Duped, Too
It's been nearly a week since the video of a "drunk girl" asking for help on Hollywood Boulevard first went viral. After the poor men in the video who were portrayed as creeps revealed that they had all been tricked into thinking they were acting in a comedy skit, the 24-year-old actress released an apology video on Monday saying the same thing.
In Jennifer Box's YouTube video, she says, "I was hired as an actress in what was described to me as a light-hearted prank show. Had I known about the damaging outcome of this video, I would never have participated. And for the record, every man seen in this video were nothing but perfect gentlemen."
The viral video, which was first described as a social experiment and has since been taken down, shows Box pretending to be drunk and drinking out of a brown paper bag. She stumbles around the busy Hollywood Boulevard asking strangers for directions to the bus to get home to Culver City. Along the way, instead of trying to help her, different men act as if they're trying to take her home with them instead.
