One tourist thought climbing a sacred pyramid in Mexico built by the ancient Mayans thousands of years ago would be a good idea. To make things worse, she even danced when she reached the top, only to be hurled with water and trash on her way back down by furious tourists.
“Jail, Jail, Jail,” “Lock Her Up,” and Even “Sacrifice, Sacrifice”
A tourist faced a furious backlash on TikTok after she was filmed climbing an ancient Mayan pyramid in Mexico without permission.
The video shows the female tourist boldly ascending the sacred pyramid in Mexico. The scene unfolded at an archaeological site, where a crowd had gathered below.
An angry chorus erupted as the tourist ignored the rules and climbed the steps.
The crowd shouted “jail, jail, jail,” “lock her up,” and even “sacrifice, sacrifice,” expressing their disdain for her disrespectful act.
No Regard for the Sanctity of the Historical Site
Clearly, this woman had no regard for the sanctity of the historical site.
It has been forbidden to climb the site since 2008, with hefty fines ranging from $2500 to $5115 for any damage tourists may cause.
Despite these clear restrictions, the tourist ascended the pyramid as if it were an amusement park attraction.
To make matters worse, as she reached the top, she decided to flaunt her disrespect further by performing a little dance on the sacred site.
“This Is So Disrespectful… Don’t Mess With My Mexican People.”
This added disrespect only made things worse. They responded by whistling, chanting, and booing louder, making their disapproval known.
When the tourist finally descended to the ground and attempted to navigate the crowd, she faced water and trash being hurled at her.
The video’s caption, posted by user @angelalopeze, summed up the sentiments of many, stating, “This is so disrespectful… don’t mess with my Mexican people.”
Unsurprisingly, the video’s comments section criticized the unnamed tourist for her outrageous behavior.
She Stirred up a Storm!
“I’ve been there, and it’s so surreal seeing it after learning the history. So sad to see people with no respect for the Mayans,” expressed one TikTok user.
Another user shared, “how can they casually go to Chichenitza and think doing something like this is ok.”
The incident has stirred up a storm online, with many eagerly awaiting the woman’s identification.
Do you agree with TikTok that the woman crossed a line? We want to hear your thoughts in the comments.
