A man lost the urge to relieve himself at a mall toilet in Johor Bahru when he found a CCTV pointed at one of the toilet stalls. He uploaded a video on TikTok as proof, with a light-hearted remark, “Thankfully I’m not naked yet”.
According to the video uploaded by @ekalorange, the far-end toilet stall apparently is not appropriately partitioned. The wall separating the toilet from the mall is built with part window glass in the upper part of the wall where it meets the ceiling. A voice belonging to the man can also be heard exclaiming sarcastically, “Can this scum (CCTV) spy on me? Am I a stump?”
As of now, the video has accumulated more than 7000 views. The uploader, who has pinned the exact location of the mall (Johor Bahru City Square) also cheekily invites other netizens to guess the location of the toilet, and gave a clue that it is located at a shopping mall in Johor Bahru.
TikTok users took their concerns to the comment section, which has risen to more than 700 comments since the video was published. “This is dangerous. Please take action. It could compromise others as well,” a netizen wrote. There are a few netizens who also urge those who are aware of the faulty placement of the CCTV to report it straight to the management of the mall.
Other netizens even joked around and sent comments such as, “(People) can get caught in 4k”, “Why are they spying on people pooping”, and “Maybe they want to monitor those who do not flush after using the toilet.” This teaches us to be aware of our surroundings. You never know who is watching you.
