The vice president called himself “the least qualified man” in the room and introduced Lady Gaga before she sang her song ‘Til It Happens to You,” which is featured on the documentary “The Hunting Ground.”

“Too many men and women around the country are still victims of sexual abuse,” Biden said. “We must and we can change the culture so that no sexual abuse survivor thinks they did anything wrong.”

He urged the crowd to pledge to “intervene in situations where consent cannot or has not been given.”

Biden received a standing ovation. (RELATED: Joe Biden Is Going To Make A Surprise Appearance At The Oscars)
