Digital content creators are going to any extent to follow weird social media trends even if that means causing inconvenience to the public.
Recently, an Instagram user and content creator posted a video of her dancing at a traffic signal in Indore as a part of some dare - following an Instagram trend in a public place.
Identified as Shreya Kalraa, the woman ran to the signal as the traffic lights turned red and danced to the song Woman by Doja Cat while the commuters waited in their vehicles. She kept dancing at the zebra crossing.
It is believed that she updated the caption of her Instagram post after being called out on social media.
Please do not break the rules - red sign means you have to stop at the signal not because I’m dancing and wear your masks guys.
Her action has irked people and the state Home Minister Narottam Mishra has said that action will be taken against the woman under the Motor Vehicles Acts.
This is how netizens reacted to the video.
Shreya has 252k followers on Instagram and she is being slammed for her insensitivity. Following this, she released a statement saying her intention was to educate people about traffic rules and COVID protocols.
I have been receiving a lot of positive responses on the video and negative responses as well. My only motive was to make people aware about the rules and the COVID protocols that people are breaking like they are not wearing masks and they are not waiting for people to cross the road. This is dangerous.
What do you think about her action and the clarification issued by her later?
