US woman Rovi Wade says her neighbour called the police on her for dressing “inappropriately” and dancing in the street, according to a TikTok video that has now gone viral with more than 10 million views.
Wade recorded the brief encounter with police before uploading it to TikTok.
“I am fully dressed,” she told the officer.
“She just doesn’t like my style.
“And I told her, ‘My body offends you. That’s what the issue is.’
“And I’m allowed to exist and be hot, and I’m going to continue to do so.
“I don’t know what she expects you to do.”
Wade later shared an “outfit reveal” video to show exactly what her neighbour thought required police intervention.
She wore denim shorts, a silver bandeau top, a choker and black knee-high boots.
She went on to explain she had been outside filming and dancing in the street when her neighbour had confronted her.
“I was just having a good time, doing my thing, me and my roommate we were being very respectful, we weren’t in anybody’s way, there wasn’t really anyone outside to see us,” she said.
“We were standing on the curb, watching some footage that we had just filmed and then my neighbour comes out.”
Wade claims the woman told them: “I know you guys are probably doing this for your business, but this is inappropriate, I have children”.
She says she “politely told her to close her blinds” as it was public property and she had “every right to be there”.
“She was basically telling me that I had to listen to her and I said no,” Ravi said, before adding that her children “would see more at the beach”.
‘I didn’t believe her’
The woman then threatened to call the police.
“I don’t believe her so I finish filming what I need to film and then I go back inside my house and then I see the cops outside,” Wade said.
She explained the officer spoke to her as a formality after the woman had complained she was filming on her property without a permit.
“I just asked him to relay the message to my neighbour that I was going to continue to do what I want because I didn’t break any laws and I was well within my rights,” she said.
