We've seen plenty of the humorous "mean tweets" segments on late night talk shows, but it isn't always so funny.

Chicago female sports reporters Sarah Spain and Julie DiCaro have been outspoken about some of the horrible comments they've received over the years. They teamed up with a group called Just Not Sports to create a video of ordinary men reading some of the actual tweets to their faces. In 24 hours, the video was viewed on Facebook over 1 million times.

DiCaro joined WGN Morning News by phone to discuss the response the video has received.

"For every horrible comment that we've gotten about it, we've probably gotten about 100 positive comments, so that was really good to see," she said.
