"Gotta protect yourself on the streets of NY," she captioned the video.

But people in the comments were pretty divided over the clip.

While some found the response hilarious and vowed to use it themselves in the future, others were not in agreement. Meanwhile, some said they would have been terrified to do the same if they faced a similar situation while walking alone.

A third added: "This is iconic ngl."

Others disagreed, with another person commenting on the video: "All he said was have a good day at work…," with another writing: "He was being nice though."

But others quickly rushed to the comments to clapback, with one responding: "All the ppl saying he was just being nice. u think he was saying that to every man who passed by? men know what theyre doing, just leave us alone."

Another added: "Everyone read the room, he wouldn’t be saying that to an old man walking by. it’s cat calling cause he’s tryin to get the attention of a young lady."

Some said they would be 'too scared' to say something in a similar situation, with another woman admitting: "Yikes I’m too scared to ever talk back like that."

How would you feel in this situation?
