The video went viral on Reddit, where it garnered mixed reactions. Some users found the incident inappropriate and called for the woman to face consequences, stating that if the roles were reversed, the reaction would be different. Others described the woman’s behavior as cringe-worthy and emphasized the importance of personal space and consent.
