VIDEO CLIP: Monk vs. rude BTS passengers

By Coconuts BangkokJanuary 11, 2013 / 14:21 ICT

The internet commentariat has become sharply divided (as is its wont) over a video clip that shows a Buddhist monk arguing with a woman on the BTS Skytrain.

According to the Bangkok Post, the altercation began when the monk admonished a group of male passengers for not giving up their seats to women. This browbeating took so extreme a pitch that several other passengers stepped in to try and calm the monk down. Eventually, a female rider decided to beat the monk at his own game and launched into a diatribe remarkable for both its volume and intensity.

Profanity flew from both sides, awkwardness ensued and at least one YouTube commenter questioned whether or not the monk was actually a monk.

Form your own heated opinion by checking out the video clip below:
