A TIKTOK star has described the moment two creepy men tried to spike her friend’s drink and take her home.
TikTok star @Aili.likes.adventures told of her “scary experience” to “stop this from happening to someone else”.
The young American had been out for drinks with friends at a bar when the men first approached, asking if they wanted a round.
When the girls said no, the men sat right next to their table and waited for them to hit the dancefloor and followed them.
“It wasn’t really a bid deal because we just told everyone who asked to dance with us that we’re gay and we’re just trying to dance with each other,” Aili says in the video.
“But these men were kind of persistent.
“So by the end of the night, it’s just me and my friend dancing together. And the two guys from earlier come up to us and shove beers in our hands.
“They didn’t say we bought you these drinks. They didn’t say, did you want to drink? They just put them in our hands”.
Aili said she had “a voice drop in my head” pleading for her not to down the free beverage.
“So instead of drinking it, I put it back in his hand and I said, ‘you drink it’.
“He was stunned. He literally back away and all he could say was ‘no’.
“So I pushed it out again and I said, ‘take a drink,’ and he said, ‘no, I got it for you.'”
The two fought over the drink until Aili ” stopped my friend from drinking, grabbed her by the arm” and left, with the TikTok sensation pushing one of the creeps off her.
“Thank God, I’m a strong a*s b**ch,” she said.
“As my friend went from being able to dance with me and talk to me to stumbling around, barely able to form a sentence, just like that.”
Urging her followers to be more cautious, she said: “If something doesn’t feel right it’s because it is not right.”
Her story garnered an almost instant reaction online.
One user wrote: “I don’t know a woman who doesn’t have a story like this.”
“We shouldn’t have to live in fear of strangers but until this stops being so common we have to be vigilant,” said another.
