guys in the van were harassing her at a red light, reaching out the drivers window and trying to grab her azz , she pushed back at them and every time she moved ahead they moved with her then the light changed he they took off, she sped up and caught them and ripped off their passenger mirror.....they didn't chase her.......the whole sequence of events is posted somewhere on you tube

I think I just fell in love.


The one time a mirror incident happened to me (the mirror part -- all I did was smack it flat via the hinge) was in England. Drivers there get way too close for comfort.

Yeah, that's what several YouTube comments claimed. But virtually every one of 'em also resorted to alt-white tropes and trolls, so who knows.

Don't care. It's still hilarious.

Ah, the Jungle Creations logo and credit indicates it's probably a homebrewed forced viral video.

Of course it was staged, truck mirrors don't just pull off like that.

Many newer vehicles are equipped with knock-off mirrors. They're designed to minimize impact damage. Some work too well and fall off without any help. Take my late 1990s GMC truck... please.

JUNGLE CREATIONS
PRESS RELEASE
It's come to our attention that a video distributed on our Facebook channel Viral Thread on 21st February 2017 may be factually incorrect. Contrary to reports, we want to make clear that Jungle Creations was in no way involved in the making or production of this video. The video was received from a third-party content provider and was distributed on Viral Thread by Jungle Creations under the impression that it portrayed real-life events. We rigorously vet all content received from third parties to ascertain its credibility, but unfortunately our usual high standards were not met on this video. Jungle Creations is committed to ensuring and protecting the integrity of content on its channels and we take matters of this nature extremely seriously. We have since commenced an internal investigation to ensure that it does not happen again. The video has now been removed from all Jungle Creations social media channels and we wholeheartedly apologise for confusion caused.
This was posted on the Jungle Creations website.

The behavior of both parties is disgusting.

The girl's behavior is just as bad as the guys. She should have called the police, or pepper sprayed the guy who tried to touch her and then call the police. She was well within her rights to do so.

He has a right to defend herself but instead she opened herself up to being arrested. Going back after the guys to retaliate shows very poor judgement.

You obviously didn't read the whole thread. IT'S FAKE!!!!!
Here is is link to just one of many news stations that reported the fake video. Jungle Creations is also admitting it is fake as they were the ones that posted the video.

I read the thread.

My response was to all the people who condone the behavior in the video, fake or not, as if it was somehow virtuous.
