Woman Stands Up To A Man Sexually Harassing Another Woman On The Subway While 3 Other Men Just Watch

bored panda - 1 month ago

Of all the videos that go viral on TikTok, this one belongs to the most disturbing and empowering ones.

Caitlin, an art student from New York City, was taking the subway home from work late at night when another passenger — a man — started sexually harassing another woman.

Caitlin stared at the man, trying to stop him but it wasn’t enough so she eventually took out her phone and recorded herself calling him out.

Later, she uploaded the video on TikTok, where it has received 1.9 million views in just a few days.
