A video showing an old man flicking his pubic hair at a sleeping train passenger was uploaded on social media and has been receiving negative feedback among Japanese netizens.
According to Japanese news outlet Jin via SoraNews24, the video was uploaded by Twitter user @momo773716.
Momo described the passenger as a high school girl or “joshi kosei,” (JK): “Oh no! The JK is getting sprinkled with pubic hair.”
When noted by one commenter at how well he shot the video, @momo773716 said he found it in YouTube first, then shared it on his account.
One artist quickly adapted the “salt bae” meme to match the circumstances.
But while a few netizens managed to poke fun, majority were still disgusted by the act and did not mince words in expressing their thoughts.
One commenter aired her concern because she rides the train everyday.
“Wait, what’s with this guy? I ride the morning train a lot, he opened his trousers and fiddled with his thing. The bastard,” said @TSUBASA66322061.
Some asked about whether the man’s act should be punishable by law.
“Isn’t this a crime? That’s creepy,” asked @mikanmama94.
“Let’s hope these kinds of things can be dealt with legally. It might go unnoticed and I feel sorry for high school girls,” said @eitobiito.
The Twitter post featuring the video has already received over 50,000 retweets, as of this writing.
