WATCH: Young Woman Fights Back Ingeniously Against Man She Says Groped Her

Endless kudos and a million high fives to the woman who perv-shamed a man who she says shamelessly groped her on a plane. Instead of silently dealing with the creep’s unwanted touching, the woman filmed him as she loudly and publicly berated him. The video that emerged, uploaded to YouTube a week ago, shows the alleged harasser hiding his face in shame as the woman gives him what for. The incident took place on an IndiGo Airlines flight to Bhubaneswar, India.

Here’s an excerpt of the exchange that appears in the video:

Girl: “You’re asking for forgiveness. Why? Because I’m a girl? And you have the right to touch me anytime, anywhere you want to?”

Man: “I’m asking for forgiveness.”

Girl: “What forgiveness are you asking for? Did you do it only once? Was it by mistake? Look at how old you are. Old moron. Halfway into your grave and still not wise enough. Say more? Say more, come on. I’m videotaping you, mister! If you ever do this again, you’ll remember this episode. You think us girls stay silent and you can do anything, right? Look here. Why are you so bashful now? I will call security. I’ll make sure I make a complaint.”

According to the user who uploaded the video, Shreyas Rao, the woman shared the footage along with a note: 

“This man on the seat behind mine, put his fingers in the seat gap to touch me!!! I was very shocked for sometime to react. By then the flight went to landing mode. Then the moment flight touched down, i got up. Saw his hand was again on the side ready to take up any opportunity to touch me!!! I created such a scene, humiliated him in front of the whole flight! He thought like usual girls will keep quiet and he can get away with this! I have lodged an FIR now! He is a very rich man of bhubaneswar and is now very humiliated in front of the people who know him. Cant believe the ordeal i had to go thru but being silent is a crime! The police officer was very helpful and the Indigo staff remained with me throughout.”

Watch the video in its entirety:


Astonishingly, a second video purportedly shows the man post-flight, attempting to talk his way out of the situation by promising to give the woman a “written apology.” As you can hear from the conversation, she’s having none of it. That video is here.
