ENLISTING TWITTER'S HELP
The bystander named Gina was so concerned she took her video to Twitter to ask for help in finding Delgado and determining what prompted her to leave.
“TWITTER please find this girl I have to know what that guy said to her.”
FIRST CAME THE JOKES...
Her tweet led users to form their own opinions on what actually transpired and what the man said to her. The jokes came pouring in. One said Delgado must have been told that “Pokemon is better than Dragonball” and another said she reacted to the man telling her that the McDonald’s McFlurry machine was broken.
Others requested for a lip reader while there were those who simply wanted to hang around to find out the truth.
