#TBT: Viral sensation Rebecca Grant parlayed video into two new gigs

Riots rattle Baltimore homeowners, merchants key to urban revitalization

A year ago, Rebecca Grant became known across the country as “the boob grabber” after a clip of her adjusting her top at a Los Angeles Clippers playoff game on national television went viral.

Fast forward to 2015, and Grant’s beloved Clippers are back in the playoffs, fighting elimination in their series against defending champion San Antonio Spurs. Since the Clippers are on the road in San Antonio, Grant said she will be relegated to posting videos of support from home.

“I like to engage fans on social media,” she said. “I’ll do different kinds of Clippers videos, different pictures, get the team riled up.”

But Grant isn’t just a basketball superfan accidentally caught on camera anymore. Her viral video fame — the clip was seen by millions — led to a dream gig for her: starring in an action series.

“I’m doing an action series that I’m really excited about called ‘Gun Girls,’” she said. “It’s a little bit sadistic, it’s a little bit on the dark side…. She doesn’t necessarily use guns. She’ll use anything from staples to scissors.”

She also got the call to go back to the Game Show Network, where she got her first big break.
