WASHINGTON, D.C. -- If 40-year-old Washington Tharpe doesn’t look familiar, maybe this will jog your memory.

He’s the man in the now-viral surveillance video being harassed and twerked upon by two women a gas station.

It was back on Oct. 7 when the local middle school teacher stopped for gas at a Washington, D.C. area Shell gas station.

When he attempted to pay the clerk, that’s when it all began.

Tharpe said he’s breaking his silence now to tell his side of the story.

The video itself clocked in over a million views online and sparked a hot button issue on whether men can really be sexual abuse victims at the hands of women.

It’s clear they can, according to Tharpe.
