After the tourist scales an ancient Mayan pyramid, a furious mob "calls for her to be sacrificed."

 




When visiting places with historical and cultural significance, travelers are expected to show respect.


However, people can and frequently do venture outside of what is acceptable, and one woman who climbed a Mayan pyramid discovered the hard way that this can have negative effects:


The Castillo de Kukulcán, one of the new seven wonders of the contemporary world, was one of the ancient structures that the woman could be seen climbing in now-viral video released on TikTok, despite the jeers of bystanders.


Despite the fact that she should have stopped what she was doing right away, she continued to openly stand atop the pyramid at Chichén Itzá, southeast Mexico, and even paused to dance.


By the time she got to the bottom, a hostile throng was waiting for her and demanding that she be "sacrificed" as a form of retribution.


The Merco Press stated that the audience was screaming "prison, jail, jail," "lock her up," and "sacrifice, sacrifice," all in the name of "respecting the rules," rather than the law.

The film briefly mentions the crowd's enormous magnitude and emphasizes that this wasn't just any mob. In order to put it into perspective, there have been well-known rock performances with smaller crowds.


Then, as the boos continue, the woman is doused with water as she tries to exit the monument.


Since 2008, the National Institute of Anthropology and History has prohibited anybody from climbing the pyramid (INAH).


In an effort to discourage people from doing this, there is also a fine that varies from $2,558 to $5,115 USD and is determined on the degree of harm done to the pyramid.


The mob added to their chants of "if she is from overseas, she should leave Mexico" despite the fact that the woman's ethnicity remains unknown.


Naturally, social media users were very critical of the woman's conduct, with one user writing: "Please tell me she is not an American."


A second person remarked, "Imagine someone from Mexico doing anything anywhere near this disrespectful to an American monument." "The footage would be broadcast by every media channel nonstop for several weeks. It is hardly newsworthy, however, when Americans damage a monument in Mexico."


"The crowd chanting 'prison, jail, jail!' makes me feel better about society viewing these crimes as heinous rather than commendable," a third person commented.

Meanwhile, a fourth said that the woman was treated leniently in comparison to what the Myan people supposedly used to do to their adversaries.


They noted that the Mayans formerly chopped off the heads of their adversaries and rolled them down the same pyramids. I believe they are acting civilly.


Tourists are not permitted to climb these structures, for reasons that should be evident, so that they may be protected for the enjoyment of future generations.
