Going viral on Feb. 3, 2015, is this interesting footage of a young girl shaming a man who alledgedly tried to grope her on an airplane. The description on the YouTube page reads, in part:

“This is a forward by this brave girl of what happened in the Indigo flight yesterday with her... ‘This man on the seat behind mine, put his fingers in the seat gap to touch me!!! I was very shocked for sometime to react... Then the moment flight touched down, I got up. Saw his hand was again on the side ready to take up any opportunity to touch me!!! I created such a scene, humiliated him in front of the whole flight!’”

The description goes on to say that the man is currently in police custody, although that has yet to be confirmed. 

Video here: 

Transcript (from BuzzFeed India): 

Girl: “You’re asking for forgiveness. Why? Because I’m a girl? And you have the right to touch me any time, anywhere you want to?”
Man: “I’m asking for forgiveness.”
Girl: “What forgiveness are you asking for? Did you do it only once? Was it by mistake? Look at how old you are. Old moron. Half way into your grave and still not wise enough. Say more? Say more, come on. I’m videotaping you, mister! If you ever do this again, you’ll remember this episode. You think us girls stay silent and you can do anything, right? Look here. Why are you so bashful now? I will call security. I’ll make sure I make a complaint.”
Man: “I’m sorry about it. Please, stop it.”
Girl: “Why? Why, please? I’m sorry, please. I’m sorry that I’m a girl! Please, forgive me, for I dare to travel alone as a woman. I’m so sorry for that! I will not leave you. Don’t think [sic].”
Man: [unintelligible]
Girl: “Yes, I have purposefully done that. You thought you could do it again, right? You were touching me here again the second time. You thought I didn’t know what was going on and I would stay quiet, right? Only us girls are expected to have shame. You have a right to be shameless.”
