Last night’s broadcast of the 2018 ESPY’s honored more than 140 ‘Sister Survivors’ of Larry Nassar abuse during the presentation of a prize awarded to athletes whose bravery “transcends sports,” as the audience rose in a standing ovation.

Sarah Klein, a former gymnast who said she was among Nassar’s earliest victims three decades ago, was the first to address the audience.

“Speaking up and speaking out is not easy,” she said. “Telling our stories of abuse, over and over and over again, in graphic detail, is not easy. We’re sacrificing privacy, we’re being judged and scrutinized, and it’s grueling and it’s painful, but it is time.”

Klein added, “we must start caring about children’s safety more than we care about adults’ reputations.”

WIBC host Tony Katz discussed the moving tribute in today’s Popcorn Moment. Click the link below to check it out:
