Airbnb Owner Allegedly Asks Renters to Shut Party Down, They Push Him into His Own Pool
In a viral video posted this month, an alleged Airbnb Owner is pushed into his own pool. The people being blamed for these actions are purportedly the home's renters.
Reddit threads often turn into major debates, and when users saw footage of a man being thrown into a pool, they were outraged and called out the people in the video and those recording.
While many details surrounding the incident are unclear, the group of partygoers could be seen as they roughly shoved a man into the water.
THE HEATED ENCOUNTER
The clip's caption alleged that the party was happening at an Airbnb, which appeared to be in a residential area. The video showed a man as he argued with several partygoers, purportedly about their noise levels.
Much of the conversation is distorted because of the loud noise, but users could faintly hear the man mention the fire department. The encounter quickly escalated out of control.
CAN'T GET OUT OF THE POOL
As the man spoke, someone cut him off and pushed him into the pool. He fell in, and the partygoers laughed and cheered. The man did not stay in the pool for long. He appeared to be unharmed and tried to get out of the water.
The partygoers high-fived each other, and when the man was almost fully out of the water, two people pushed him in again. The video recorder noted that these two guys were "bullies" but did not help the man.
SHOVED INTO THE WATER AGAIN
The crowd surrounding the pool got bigger, and then the purported Airbnb owner made another attempt to get out of the pool. The same two people acted quickly and jumped into the pool before the man could get out.
They shoved him around in the water. This led the video recorder to state that they “felt bad for recording.” The man then realized that his efforts to get out of the pool were futile.
CLIP GOES VIRAL
Instead of trying to get out again, the video showed as he swam to the shallow end of the pool. One of the men guilty of throwing him into the water was seen throwing something at him.
The clip quickly went viral and gained thousands of comments and upvotes on the Reddit platform. People were appalled by the incident, and one user said: “These people have no redeeming qualities.”
COMMENTS FROM AIRBNB
The video ended as the crowd continuously mocked and verbally assaulted the man who could not get out. An Airbnb representative stated that they were unsure if the incident actually occurred at one of their listings.
According to the Daily Dot, they said:
“If we receive information indicating it was an Airbnb listing or reservation, we will, of course, investigate immediately.”
CALLING OUT THE VIDEO RECORDER
A netizen called out the person recording the video. The user said: "If he felt bad, he would've zoomed in on the face of the assaulting parties so that the video could be given to the police."
The user continued by pointing out that the video recorder could have contacted the police to assist the man who was mocked and pushed around. It is unclear if this incident was reported.
