‘Dancing With The Stars’ Host Erin Andrews Calls Out Taxi Driver Filming Her [Video]

Cabbies, take note: if you use your cell phone camera to film Erin Andrews, you might lose out on a fare. That’s what happened to one taxi driver who was taking pictures of the Dancing With the Stars host as she was interviewed by a TMZ crew at Los Angeles International Airport on Friday. While the reporter asked Andrews about Von Miller’s relationship with his DWTS pro partner, Andrews walked along a row of cabs. She declined to take a ride with the man filming her movements.

Last month, Erin Andrews was awarded $55 million after a man filmed her changing in a hotel room. The Washington Post reported that, in 2008, the man asked staff at the Nashville Marriott for Andrews’ room number, and then booked the suite next to hers. He later uploaded the video to the internet. The man, Michael David Barrett, was convicted in 2009 of stalking Andrews in Nashville and Columbus. He served 20 months in prison.

The court found Barrett liable to pay $28 million of the judgment and the hotel nearly $27 million. Fox News reported that Barrett is most likely financially unable to pay the amount.

In Friday’s video, embedded below, Andrews seems generally good-natured and answers questions of the TMZ crew. She jokingly asks if they are paying the cab driver, presumably for his footage. At the end of the clip, the reporter explains to the cabbie that she objected to the filming.
