Though viral videos are a dime a dozen, there are few that are quite as dumfounding as the footage captured in Santa Monica, CA Friday night. The video in question features an enraged woman having an obscenely disturbing freakout over a couple’s innocent display of affection. Fortunately, the couple caught this entire encounter on camera and thanks to Reddit, it’s spreading through the internet like wildfire.
This video of a woman having a disturbing freakout and slut-shaming a woman over minor PDA is infuriating the internet.
Warning: This video may induce fits of rage.
SERIOUSLY!? Do people like this really exist? I’m still waiting for John Quiñones to waltz out and tell us all it was another episode of What Would You Do. Alas, this is not the case.
The boyfriend of the couple that fell victim to this insane heckler posted the footage on Reddit with this caption:
Last night my girlfriend of four years and I were waiting patiently for a lady to order her food at this restaurant in Santa Monica, and I had my arms around her from behind and maybe kissed her on the top of the head once or twice, but that was the extent of it.
Out of nowhere, the lady (who was finalizing her transaction) looks at us and exclaims emphatically how inappropriate PDA was and how uncomfortable it was making her. I thought she was joking because of how little we were actually making contact. I turned and kissed my girlfriend on the cheek and made a loud smack, and that’s where she really lost it. I immediately knew I had to get this on camera, so that’s about where the video picks up.
We tried to stay as calm as possible. I was trying not to engage as I knew this lady was clearly nuts, but when she started calling my girlfriend a slut, whore, etc, and when she stepped closer to her, that’s when I started getting angry. In retrospect, I’m proud that we didn’t sink to her level or anything like that, but wish I would’ve said some more clever remarks. Oh also, I fucked up by not filming in portrait mode – Sorry about that.
