A young woman has been left extremely shaken after a strange encounter with a strange man led to him following her home.
TikTok user Kenny ( @buzzcutkenny ) had no idea she was being followed until she pulled into her apartment building’s parking lot, only to be blocked in by a random car driven by a strange man.
Kenny began explaining on the app: “At this point, I’m sorry, but men should not have rights.”
“I’m sorry but listen to what happened. I’m adding this to my series of out-of-pocket s*** that men have done. It’s been a minute since I’ve done one of these.”
“So I just got home and there was a car who pulled up behind me, right, which is fine because I live in an apartment complex and that’s normal,” she continued.
“But this car wedges itself between me and the parking garage, and there’s a man in it. He motions for me to roll my window down, so I did and I was like ‘Can I help you?’”
The man then asked Kenny if she lived in the apartment building, to which she lied and said, ‘no.’ He then asked if she was from Austin, prompting her to tell another lie and say she was there to visit a friend for her safety.
She added: “He says ‘I’ve been following you for five miles’ because he saw me at a stoplight and wanted to tell me I was pretty. In what f***ing world is that appropriate?”
Unfortunately, while many people were horrified by the details of Kenny’s experience, many others shared stories of similarly disturbing experiences they’d had.
“I had a man stop in the lane in front of my bicycle at 10 pm. He rolls down his window and asked if I ride this way every night. I said no,” one TikTok commented.
Another added: “Not sure how I stumbled on this side of TikTok but this is the sixth story that has similarly disturbing details.”
“This is like straight-up stalking,” a third wrote. Yep, we couldn’t agree more – this is not okay.
