Neighbour calls police because she doesn’t like woman’s ‘inappropriate’ outfit

News

When it comes to fashion, everyone’s taste is different.

Some people love to keep up with the latest trends, others prefer a more classic style, while there are those who simply throw on whatever they like.

One woman from the US has recently claimed that her choice of outfits have caused issues where she lives.

TikTok user @rovi_wade shared a video on the social media platform showing the moment police came to speak with her at her home, after a neighbour reported her for ‘dressing inappropriately’

In the clip, Rovi suggests her neighbour reported her because she didn’t like how much skin her clothing revealed and found her body to be ‘offensive’.

The footage shows the young woman, wearing a black choker with spikes and a sparkly top, speaking to a man off-camera who she claims is a police officer.

She tells him: “I am fully dressed, she just doesn’t like my style.

“I told her, my body offends you, that’s what the issue is and I’m allowed to exist and be hot and I’m gonna continue to do so.

“I don’t know what she expects you to do.”

The video quickly went viral, being watched more than 11million times and garnering over two million likes.

Thousands of people also took the time to comment, with many sharing messages of support for Rovi and begging her to release merchandise featuring the phrase ‘I’m allowed to exist and be hot’.

One person said: “The way you advocate for yourself unapologetically chefs kiss.”

Another wrote: “YES QUEEN.”

“I love you omg,” proclaimed a third.

Someone else added: “OMG the cops were called for your outfit? WTF was she thinking?”

Rovi went on to make several follow-up videos, sharing the full story about the incident with the police.

She explained: “Basically what happened was I was outside, filming, I was dancing in the street and I was just having a good time doing my thing. We were being very respectful, we weren’t in anybody’s way, there wasn’t really anyone outside to see us.

“And then we were kind of standing on the curb, watching some footage we had just filmed and then my neighbour comes out and she’s like, ‘I know you guys are probably doing this for your business, but this is inappropriate, I have children’.

“And I was like ‘your children aren’t even out here’ and she’s like ‘I have windows and they can see you’.

“So I politely told her to close her blinds because I had every right to be there, it was public property and she was basically telling me that I had to listen to her and I said no.”

She continued: “I asked her what she found so offensive about my body because her children would see more at the beach honestly and she was adamant that she did not find my body offensive, she just didn’t want her children seeing it, which doesn’t really make sense to me, but okay.

“Then she said you can go and film in front of your own house and I was like, ‘I am in front of my own house’, she didn’t think I lived in that neighbourhood. And then she was like ‘Well I own my house and you only rent’.

“So she tells me she’s gonna call the cops and I don’t believe her, so I finish filming then I go back inside my house and see the cops outside.

“I walk outside to meet the officer and what he told me was that she told him I was filming on her property without a permit, and that is a bald-faced lie, I was not filming on her property. The only places I was filming was in my driveway, on the sidewalk and in the street. That’s it.”

“He basically just talked to me as a formality, he was pretty blasé about the whole thing,” Rovi added.
