Most would dream to be rich enough to “make it rain”. With all that money in your bank account, why would you not want to give it away to people who are in need of some extra cash to survive? It’s always good to donate whenever you can afford to and you may never know much someone’s life could change from your generous donation.
Although you’re free to donate however much you want and to whoever or whatever charity you want, you have to be considerate in the method you’re using to give away that money. You can’t simply throw them to the ground for people to fight over the money. Unfortunately, this TikToker was caught doing just that.
A TikTok video from an unknown source was reported to have gone viral on social media where we can see a mysterious individual throwing away RM1000 in cash to the ground from an upper floor of Suria KLCC Mall. The unnamed TikToker was seen holding RM100 notes in their hands before “making it rain” for the people on the ground floor to catch.
According to mStar, the original video managed to gain over 1 million views before possibly being removed from TikTok. The 6-second video, unfortunately, did not show the shoppers’ reactions after noticing RM100 notes were falling from the upper floor. There is currently no information nor link to a follow-up video that shows what happened next.
It is also currently unknown if the individual has been questioned by authorities for their content. The viral TikTok video was then reposted on Instagram where netizens, including actress-singer Tash Yong and musician Erul Samah condemned the mysterynTikToker’s actions; wasting money for the sake of content.
At the time of writing, Suria KLCC Mall has yet to release a statement regarding the video. While we may not know the original creator’s intention, it is possible that they were inspired to drop their money because of a trend on TikTok last year where content creators filmed mall shoppers’ reactions to money falling from above.
Below is an example of the TikTok trend:
