Influencer sparks debate after sharing her frustration with people walking in front of camera as she films

An influencer on TikTok has people questioning whether or not it’s rude to walk in front of someone taking a photo or video in public.

Antonia Freya Lydia, who goes by the username @turnttoni on the platform, posted a video with text across the screen that read, “Taking an aesthetic video in the London underground be like.” In the video, the influencer is seen standing in front of a train passing behind her with her hair blowing in the wind. In the middle of filming, a man walked then in front of Antonia as she is seen looking frustrated that someone blocked her shot.

Multiple times throughout the TikTok people proceeded to walk in front of her as she once again appeared frustrated and seemed to start the filming process over again.


“Like can you wait just one sec, sir?” she captioned her TikTok. Since being posted a little over a year ago, the video has been viewed over eight million times. The TikTok has over 9,000 comments, with most people questioning the influencer’s frustration. “Who do you think you are?” one person commented on the video.

Many commenters pointed out the fact that she was in public and should’ve expected other people to cut into the video. “It’s almost like…you’re in public,” one person commented. Another person agreed, writing, “How dare the public use the public transportation in public?”
