The video was captioned, “God help us from to Jay..! 🤐“
The video begins with panicked men seen running around everywhere. Then the clip goes on to show the ‘unnamed woman’ swinging a wooden stick all around at the onlookers as the crowd around her scatters away.
Some people have called her a ‘Saudi Wonder Woman’ while others are bashing her for ‘provoking’ men.
Reportedly, she is a popular social media personality and men were just following her to take pictures when she went into an outburst.
Recently, a member of the Council of Senior Scholars in Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdullah al-Mutlaq had stated, as long as they are dressed modestly, women in Saudia Arabia do not have to dress themselves in a long black robe.
