What you all did is totally corret!” and “Hats off to you girls!!!”.
Recalling the incident on her Facebook page, the woman, targeted by the lady for wearing the short dress, wrote: “Hey guys. Today my friends and I were harassed by a woman at a restaurant for me wearing a short dress. This middle aged woman you’ll see in the video addressed seven men at the restaurant to rape us because she felt we deserved it for wearing short clothes and bashing her unsolicited opinion…we took her on at a shopping centre, nearby. We gave her the chance to apologise, to no avail, of course [sic]”.
In the video, a woman can be seen supporting the victim and her friends and asking the woman to apologise. Another woman can be seen arguing that if short dress had been the reason for rapes, then why were the toddlers and elderly women raped. But the lady, in no mood to relent, justified her comments and also threatened to call the police.
Nukkadwala CEO and co-founder, Nitika Kapur said, “Yes, we are aware of the incident. The girls who came in are regulars at the outlet. The lady had a certain kind of mindset. We don’t know what triggered her outburst. The manager did request her to kindly calm down since they could not ask her to leave out of respect. Following the outburst, they allowed the group of women to take their food to the upper floor. The restaurant has also extended their support to the girls who had been shamed.”
