A bouncer in Portland, Oregon, was accused of breaking the "bro code" by allowing two women in search of their boyfriends inside the club he was working at.
But he was also lauded for being a "good man" for helping the ladies.
Bruce Bear–TikToker @fatbouncer–posted a video captioning the video of his encounter with, "In all my years of bouncing, I've never seen anything like this," adding, "it gets BETTER in the next 2 videos!"
In the first of three videos, we are introduced to "Dakota" and "Todd," who entered the strip club.
"Dakota and Todd are in for one helluva surprise tonight," said the bouncer.
Moments later, two women approached the bouncer and one of them told him they'd been looking for their missing boyfriends for "three hours."
"Can you tell me if someone's entered the building if I showed you a picture of them?" asked the long blond-haired woman, to which Bruch said in voiceover, "At first I wasn't sure if I should divulge any information."
The next clip showed their continued conversation before the bouncer granted access to the two ladies.
After seeing a photo of Dakota on the woman's cellphone, the bouncer said in the voiceover:
“But after thinking about it for a little, while I figured these ladies have been through enough drama and deserved some answers."
When another patron said of Dakota, “I swear I just saw him," the woman responded:
“Don’t f'k with me right now."
The guy continued throwing Dakota under the bus and confirmed he was inside the club, upstairs.
When the bouncer asked if their boyfriends were in trouble, the girlfriend said, "Oh he's in big f'ng trouble."
The woman with the dark hair who is presumably Todd's girlfriend added:
"We've been on a wild goose chase to four different strip clubs looking for them."
The bouncer said in a voiceover that he was always a "sucker for a big fireworks display."
"This is gonna be epic!" said the bouncer, as the two ladies handed over their IDs.
Dakota's girlfriend commented, “I’m shaking with anger right now," before entering the club.
People admonished the men who supposedly ditched their girlfriends for the night, and they praised the bouncer for enabling the ladies' mission.
However, many TikTokers who had their concerns were disappointed the bouncer was in violation of the "bro code."
In the final clip, the bouncer said he wished he was inside "to see the righteous anger those ladies were dropping on Dakota and Todd."
One of the women was heard yelling at her man at the top of the stairs inside the club:
"You do everything that I say I hate. Everything!"
The clip ended with the unhappy couple leaving the premises, and Dakota's maybe soon-to-be ex-girlfriend commenting, "no."
In the caption, the bouncer told viewers:
"I mean, they deserve what they get for disrespecting their partners, but I'd hate to be in their boots. DON'T BE LIKE DAKOTA & TODD."
