When one plans to buy groceries, a trip to the supermarket should not be troublesome. Shopping for yourself or for your family should be a relaxing and enjoyable experience but then again, you’ll never know what you might witness once you’re there.
You might see an angry male “Karen” throwing a tantrum for being told to wear a facemask. If you’re a woman, it’s best to stay alert as perverts might be secretly recording you in order to sell those videos on suspicious group chats. Then, there are the troubled youngsters who thought it would be a good idea to drink from unopened bottles at the supermarket.
A video showing a group of young adults in a supermarket is currently going viral. We currently have no info on the original source of the video but TikTok user @encikcb reposted the video on his channel a few days ago which has now gained 539.1k views, 7.9k likes, and over 700 comments.
The video first showed a man drinking from an unopened bottle at a supermarket without paying before putting it back on the shelf. His action was then followed by a young girl who did the exact same thing before taking out new bottles and putting them into the shopping cart, leaving the one she drank from behind.
The caption in the video reads, “If you were to see (people) like these, what would you do?”. The unsanitary act caught netizens’ attention with many condemning the group in the video and hoping that appropriate actions will be taken against them. In addition, the viral video has now caused people to be wary about buying drinks in supermarkets.
According to netizens as well as the Borneo Bulletin, the incident took place at Soon Lee Megamart in Kuala Belait, Brunei late last month, and the individuals involved have been arrested. The viral “prank” was investigated under Section 35, Chapter 148 of the Public Order Act, relating to broadcasting false information resulting in public anxiety and disorder.
Soon Lee Megamart also issued a statement to reassure customers that they have done all necessary checks to make sure that the products are sealed properly and are safe for consumption and use. Read the full statement below:
