Ah, Instagram fame. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any lamer, its finds new and fresh ways to surprise you.
Exhibit A: This video of a Taiwanese model having her breasts squeezed in various public areas around Hong Kong, which is fast closing in on 700,000 views and predictably drawing the ire (and pervy comments) of netizens.
In the video, a scantily dressed woman can be seen in various public settings, including a bus, an underground walkway, and even the platform of a train station. Each “scene” ends the same way though, with the person holding the camera — presumably a male — beckoning her over, then reaching out and squeezing her breasts. Tee hee!
According to Apple Daily, the woman in the video is a Taiwanese model known as Yui Yui, who has attracted a following by posting photos and videos of her showing off her, um, “assets” to her 30,000 Facebook followers and 19,200 Instagram followers.
The video causing the current stir was posted online on Wednesday, and has since been shared more than 5,600 times.
Alongside the expected commentary on whether or not she’s had breast enhancement surgery, multiple netizens have described the video as “shameful” while others called the model a prostitute. Some hit a bit below the belt (literally) saying, “this is clearly a man who had a sex change.”
Wherever you stand on this nonsense, we can all agree that our celebrated public transportation system deserves better.
According to a lawyer who spoke to Apple Daily, the model, if pursued by police for the videos, could be charged with outraging public decency, which carries a maximum penalty of seven years in prison.
