Woman divides opinion after kicking sand at 'old man' who sat too close on beach

A WOMAN filmed herself kicking sand at an 'old man' who sat close to her on an empty beach, but her actions have left people divided.

Tiktok user @korynnec shared a video of herself lying on the beach and sunbathing.

She panned the camera round to show the beach was completely empty, except for one man who was sat about 10-ft in front of her – leaving her feeling uncomfortable.

She claimed that the man had come and sat down there while she was taking a nap.

On the video, she wrote: "When an old man parks himself 10-ft in front of your towel on a completely empty beach while you were napping and you know what needs to be done."

After putting her phone down on the sand, she ran past the man and kicked sand at him – which she made look like an accident – before continuing to run into the sea.

Her plan clearly worked as she then filmed the man walking away carrying all of his stuff.

The video has been watched 4.3m times and received more than 4,600 comments.

Viewers were divided, with some thinking the girl was perfectly within her rights to kick sand at the man as he was making her uncomfortable by sitting so close to her.

One person wrote: "He chose right by her out of a whole beach. Any cautious person wouldn't like it."

Another put: "All the people who think he did nothing wrong have never been made to feel uncomfortable or unsafe by someone's presence."

Someone else put: "How is anyone defending the man when you can clearly SEE him creeping on her from his towel?"

A fourth person wrote: "He's obviously older than she is, not giving her space on an empty beach. She has a right to be uncomfortable."

However, others believed it was unacceptable for her to kick sand at the man and that she was making a fuss over nothing.

One person said: "Looks more like you're harassing him", and another wrote: "She doesn't own the beach, he can pick whatever spot he likes and if she's that uncomfortable then she should stay home".

Someone else added: "That was wrong. Just be graceful and leave", and a fourth added: "He has done nothing wrong. Public beach. If you don't like it, you move".
