In the past few years, India has witnessed a drastic increase in eve-teasing cases where the accused ended up learning a lesson after the victim took matters into their own hands to bring ‘instant justice’. Social media is full of videos where victims, mostly women, were seen retaliating after getting eve-teased. Doing something similar, a woman ended up slapping a man quite a few times after he allegedly ‘passed vulgar comments’ on her. A video of the same was shared on social media, which went viral. But keeping in mind several fake similar accusations, the clip received a mixed reaction.
The video was shared on the microblogging site X (formerly Twitter) by the handle ‘Arhant Shelby’. The post was later reshared by another X handle ‘Ghar ke kalesh’, with the caption, “Kalesh b/w a Guy and a Woman on Road over that guy was passing some vulgar comments on her.”

As soon as the video was shared on the internet, it received a mixed reaction and went viral. Some people asked to share the previous context of the matter and spoke about the possibility of the woman playing a ‘fake victim card’, while others sided with the lady and pointed out that the man did not retaliate, which seemed as if he was in the wrong.

Taking to the comment section, people shared their take. “Don’t give comments on one-sided video, other side clarification required, many times we go with the video and start blaming one person, and then something else comes out,” a user pointed out. “Sabasshhh aunty or Maro, shakal se lafandar lag rha (Good, he should be beaten up more. He is already looking like a miscreant),” added a second. “When my mom caught me playing tekken 3 in the gaming section,” added a fourth. “You cannot be sure if the lady was actually commented on, but then the man is not even retaliating,” said another.
“A regular huda city centre thing,” added a sixth netizen. “This has been very common now post stories of both sides, the past version of such videos shows the ladies are misusing their powers to promote fake feminism,” added a next.
