Watch Jessica Williams Prove a Point by Reporting in a Bikini and Body Armor

Jun 09, 2015

On Monday's episode of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart discussed a recent incident in McKinney, Texas, where a police officer slammed a black teenage girl to the ground during a pool party. He was also caught on camera pointing his gun at several other unarmed teens who tried to help her.

Stewart tapped correspondent Jessica Williams to help him address the incident, so she "reported live" from McKinney, wearing a full suit of body armor beneath a bright pink bikini. (A "McKinney bikini," or, as Stewart calls it, a "McKini.")

"This week's incident has taught black people here something valuable," Williams said. "When you go to a pool party, even in your own neighborhood that you live in, you have to know pool etiquette, which is no running, no splashing, no talking back, and, if at all possible, get your ass even further to the ground than it already is."

Then Williams added: "But either way, this incident is progress. It's progress because a cop pulled a gun on a group of black kids, and nobody is dead."
