Harassed by a street performer

I was harassed by a “Street Performer” on London’s South Bank. In between his magic act he thinks it’s funny to shout at lone females who are unfortunate enough to be passing. I don’t know why bullying and harassing women is entertainment for tourists. It makes me sad and angry on the inside.
