“You can see the fence she hopped over in the video. Also, you may have noticed that she was the only one climbing – that should be a big hint that climbing isn’t allowed,” said one user.
A second user said, “The crowd yelling “jail, jail, jail!” makes me feel better about society seeing these acts as egregious rather than applaudable.”
“And then she had to dance once at the top. Smh. There are human remains inside there. It’s like dancing on top of a grave. The disrespect,” said another user.
“Obviously she was wrong to jump the fence and disrespect the monument, but it’s also kind of terrifying how quickly mobs can form. It looked some people were physically trying to get at her. This is a phenomenon of group behavior that shouldn’t be treated lightly,” commented another user.
