Women in revealing swimsuits are hardly a novel sight on Bali’s beaches, yet one man appeared to be so aroused by seeing a foreign woman in a bikini that he allegedly filmed her without consent. 

Luckily, the alleged perv got his comeuppance.

A viral video has spread depicting a feud between the man and the woman. Witnesses said that the man in the black and red jacket had been secretly taking pictures and videos of the woman.

After realizing what was happening, the woman snatched what looked to be the man’s phone from the sand. Throughout the rest of the video, the man attempts, and fails, to grab his phone back from the visibly angry woman. 

This video has since sparked condemnation and shame towards the man, with netizens worried that his perverted act may taint Bali’s reputation as a safe space for tourists.

Bali’s Tourism Agency also condemned the alleged perv.

“This kind of thing infringes on the privacy and comfort of others,” agency head Tjok Bagus Pemayun said today.

He added that the agency is trying to determine where the video was taken. Once that information is obtained, the agency will work with local officials to raise awareness about acts that could taint tourism in Bali.

It’s unclear at this point whether or not the man got his phone back. Police have not issued any statements yet regarding the viral video, and the people involved have not yet been identified.

This story has been updated to include the tourism agency statement.
