This week, a WOMAN was seen struggling with a gas pump on TikTok that went viral because it quickly spewed out gas.
As gas prices across the country soar, people are criticizing the original poster for not doing anything to help.
Video was posted on February 16th and has gained over 5.5 million views and almost 150,000 likes.
In the video, a distressed woman can be seen screaming and seeking help as the gas pump she was using spews gasoline all over the floor.
“Better someone save her but it’s not me,” reads the video’s overlay text but user @big_beardd.
Since then, some commenters have believed that the woman’s decision to film and not help her was malicious by the TikToker.
“Why don’t you at least try to help her?” wrote a user. “This makes me really sad. She looks embarrassed and helpful, but at least you got the likes on social media, right?”
“Is helping each other a dying art?” wrote otherwise.
Another said if they were in the woman’s shoes, they would point the hose at the person filming the video.
However, @big_beard said the video was “a joke” while responding to comments.

Another topic of discussion is how expensive all that wasted gas must be. Prices are at record highs, partly because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
One user said: “She will never recover financially from this.
However, another said the gas station probably wouldn’t charge her because the owners would be more worried about a lawsuit.
