A video recently went viral on Saudi Twitter which showed a woman verbally catcalling a group of men in Jeddah.
The video received a lot of backlash and people demanded action from authorities
The woman was filmed sitting in the backseat of a car, smoking what appears to be an electronic cigarette, and catcalling men through an open window of the car.
