We're still in shock over the Fox and Friends TV segment that aired, featuring host Steve Doocy and three other adult men staring at grown women in workout clothes and deciding if their outfits were appropriate to wear in public. Fox probably thought it was being cute by using the dad angle and asking if the men would let their daughters wear similar outfits, but the end result? Some straight-up objectification of the female figure, and the internet was NOT having it.A day later, Fox must have realized how seriously problematic this clip is and aired another video, which you can watch here. It appears to be an attempt to actually cover the news story by interviewing the creator of the viral "leggings ain't pants" video, Tennessee resident Jamie Higdon Randolph, which was the catalyst for the creepy staring dads segment. This time, a female TV personality - Kimberly Guilfoyle - spoke to Jamie to ask her about the story behind the infamous leggings rant. Why they thought the all-male leggings panel was a better option the first go-round, the world may never know. They didn't think to get a fashion expert or even Jamie to weigh in the first time?

Ugh...we're still shuddering from Arthur Aidala's audible "oof" when the last girl, Paige, walked out.

Literally everyone there seems to be uncomfortable. At one point Arthur says "Dangerous territory here, folks," even voicing the fact that he knows what's going on really isn't cool. Andrew Sansone is visibly uncomfortable as he's asked to look at and comment on Paige's outfit. Duck Dynasty's Willie Robertson talks about his own camo leggings which at that point all we are thinking is WTF...why is he even here?

When asked if she's comfortable in what she's wearing, Paige says, "I am," because duh. It's literally something we would just wear to the gym. But was she comfortable with those dudes ogling her like that? We seriously doubt it.
