The video lasts 53 seconds and has been viewed over 112,000 views in just a day.
It shows a woman in a white Toyota Camry with a Kuala Lumpur number plate attacked by a group of men in Uptown Bazaar in Kelantan.

Twitterjaya is 50/50 on this issue, as some are saying that she was the cause of the commotion whilst others say bystanders shouldn’t have interfered.

Aku rasa kalau betul salah perempuan ni sekali pun tak patut sampai rosak kan kereta dia wehh agak2 arr kalau kena dekat kita macam mana rasa? Kalau nak bertekak nak maki hamun hah buat jaa tak perlu nak hancur rosak kan kereta dia. Pendapat aku laa 🙃— ماريني يوسف ♡ (@meynimarini) May 24, 2019
Though because alot of the tweets were in Kelantanese slang, some took the liberty explaining the tweet in plain Malay.
Explaining how that the lady was driving through the Uptown Parkson area in Kota Bahru was honking because she wanted people to make way for her
like a queen.
On top of that, whilst driving, she had ran over people’s toes, but she should have stayed in the car as advised by some.
1. Awek driver tu lalu celah Uptown Parkson KB kemudian dok hon suruh orang bagi jalan.— Asrul Muzaffar (@asrulmm) May 23, 2019
2. Dia drive sampai terlanggar barang jualan dan kaki pengunjung.
3. Waktu orang dok kerumun, ada yang nasihat awek tu dok diam2 dalam kereta tapi dia keluar dan jerit2
Yes guys, she supposedly ran over people’s feet!
😠 siapa suruh pijak kaki org— Ӈilman (@HilmanxD) May 24, 2019
Kota Bharu police have said that it was all a big mistake as reported by Berita Harian.
She hadn’t intentionally meant to be rude and she got out of her car because she was unable to continue driving because the road was obstructed.
Unfortunately, when she got down, she was assaulted by the men.
Thankfully she was saved by some other men, and later, a patrolling police officer had also stepped in to break up the commotion.
A 26 year-old hawker has been arrested for further questioning and police are seeking out more of the men involved in the commotion.
This video was somewhat of a deja-vu for some, remembering a recent incident in Keramat.
teringat kes viral haritu pasal laki tampar perempuan sbb perempuan tu tak bagi signal + kurang ajar. tapi bukan jadi kat kelantan, kat tempat lain. so of course la semua marah kat orang2 tu je. ni tunggu lah nanti dah viral mesti semua duk “kel kel” hahahahaha lol— 🤫 (@dihahmfrds) May 23, 2019
Women are also standing up for each other.
