A TikTok user went viral when she posted a video capturing the moment she and her friend confronted a middle-aged man in an airport who tried to secretly take photos of them.
The TikToker, known as @bailzherb on the video-sharing site, included a caption that outlined her frustration about the all-too-common occurrence.
"I know some people won't understand why we are so upset/mad but this happens WAY too often and it's violating and creepy."
The video went on to show that @bailzherb turned her camera on after someone apparently told her the man was snapping pics of her and her friend.
With the camera rolling, she approached the man and asked him flat out.
"Are you taking photos of us? We were just told you were taking photos of us."
As she asked, he quickly put his phone into his pocket and denied he was taking photos.
So she pressed him, asking:
"Can we just see your camera roll real quick?"
When he said no to that, she again pressed him:
"If you weren't taking photos of us why can't we see your camera roll?"
He then tried to walk away, saying he'd get rid of it.
@bailzherb then got real:
"Sir, it's really weird to take pictures of females in public without their permission, so you should never do that again. Imagine if we were your daughter or someone related to you?"
"It's not okay just delete them...I want to see you delete them in front of me."
Then, with his hands trembling, he pulled up his photos to reveal four pictures he took of the women.
He deleted them, @bailzherb reiterated how creepy his behavior was and he walked away.
People who saw the clip on TikTok commended the women for their actions.

A few thought his behavior might have been far worse than just creepy.
The response was similar when the clip made its way over to the PublicFreakout subReddit.
"Dude completely panicked. Did he really never plan for something like this?" -- weightyahem
"Damn impressive on her part. Unfortunate she has to do this but good on her." -- Aceritus
"Now I question if it even was his son he had a picture of!" -- Benj52993
"Did I hear a 'sshhh' from him. The nerve of him trying to stop her spitting the truth and calling him out." -- WinterNight299
Unfortunately, we know he's far from the last guy to try and pull this kind of thing.
But it's nice to know thanks to these two women's courage, at least one guy out there will be thinking twice.
