A video surfaced online showing an elderly lady trying to climb an escalator, which is going down- and social media users gave their 10 cents on the clip.
A tweep, who goes by the handle @ItsTheRealBizZ, shared the video on his Twitter page and it sparked a debate on the social media platform.
He simply captioned the video, “She ain't Giving up.”
Needless to say, the video gathered a lot of comments, one tweep suggested the gogo was hungry and she was on her way to get herself a KFC bucket.
Briefly.co.za saw although some people found the footage funny, many felt people should have helped her instead of taking a video of her struggle against the escalator.
Rethabile Kobe slammed the person who filmed the video, adding: “She’s old and has a child on her back. So no one had the decency to help her but has the nerve to record this? Society is messed up.”
However, some tweeps pointed out she might not have wanted other people’s help. At one point in the video it did appear strangers wanted to help her, but the gogo just ignored them and kept on going.
