A video (shown below) posted on Facebook showing how a woman from Boston confronted a man has gone viral.
Jase Dillan spotted the unidentified man while she was out running errands, and claims he was secretly filming several women, according to her Oct. 29 Facebook post.
“Just another day on Newbury St. Please help me find and identify this creep,” Dillan captioned her video.
“Not only did he film my crotch and backside, along with the same of at least eight other women that I personally witnessed in less than 10 minutes, but I decided to confront him after watching him do the same to two girls who could not have been more than 14 years old. DISGUSTING,” she added.
Dillan followed the man so he wouldn't get away before confronting him.
“What the f**k are you doing?” he asks in the video after realizing Dillan is filming him.
“I am videotaping you the way you were videotaping me,” she answers.
Dillan demands to see the man’s camera.
“You're not seeing my camera,” he responds.
“You don't like being filmed without your own permission? Is that what you are telling me?” Dillan asks him.
“You don't like it?” she adds. “Maybe you'll think twice next time you want to be a creepy f***ing dirtbag.”
At one point, the man starts to argue with her about the legality of his filming.
“Why do you think I would need your permission first of all?” he says.
“If he felt it was OK to film girls' private areas, i thought it would be OK to film his face,” Dillan told Cosmopolitan in an interview.
She spoke to a police officer after the incident, who took her statement and agreed with her that the man’s behavior was inappropriate, even though filming clothed women is technically not illegal.
“I'm sticking up for all of the girls who were videotaped that day, and other days, who don't even know they were taped,” Dillan said.
The man also was reportedly wearing a wedding ring at the time of the incident.
The video has been viewed nearly 3 million times on Facebook.
