Woman strips to avoid paying for meal
KUALA LUMPUR — An unidentified woman stripped off her clothes to avoid paying for a meal worth around 18 Malaysian ringgit in Petaling Street here.
The woman went to a chicken rice restaurant with a man around 3 p.m. on Thursday.
A nearby stall owner identified only as Wong said the woman had two plates of chicken rice before trying to leave without paying.
“When the restaurant operator tried to stop her, she denied having eaten there.
“However, she was shown a CCTV recording of her eating in the restaurant, so she started stripping to avoid paying,” said Wong, who runs a jewelry stall beside the restaurant.
The almost two-minute-long video of the woman taking off her top was uploaded on YouTube a few hours after the incident but has since been taken down.
Witnesses said the woman’s companion, described as a Caucasian, got into a scuffle off camera with the restaurant operator when she was not allowed to leave.
The duo reportedly fled when policemen arrived at the scene.
The video caused a stir on social media.
While it is unclear as to the reason of her argument, she shouts, “don’t do this to me,” and “what is your problem, I pay you” at the restaurant operator as she takes off her clothes.
