Tourist faces backlash after dancing on Mayan Pyramid in Mexico

An angry mob in Mexico poured water on a clueless female tourist, hurled insults at her and demanded that she be locked up after she ascended the ancient Mayan pyramid and was filmed dancing on the stairs.

The unidentified woman, who is said to be a Spanish national, sparked an outrage Monday when she ignored the rules barring visitors from climbing Mayan Temple of Kukulcán in Chichén Itzá, which was named in 2007 one of the New 7 Wonders of the World by UNESCO.

After reaching the top, she gyrated her hips and waved her arms in celebration, drawing loud jeers from a large group of tourists observing her wild antics from the ground. Some of them were heard calling the disrespectful visitor an “a–hole” and an “idiot” in Spanish.

Chants of “jail, jail, jail” and “lock her up” in Spanish could be heard in the background.

The blonde woman, sporting bright-red tights and a blue T-shirt, ducked into the temple room, before descending the pyramid’s 365 steps. She was met at the base by officials with the Mexican Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), along with a furious crowd.

In viral videos that have been circulating on TikTok and Twitter, irate onlookers are seen dousing the insolent tourist, who has been dubbed “Lady Chichén Itzá,” with water from plastic bottles, and calling her “stupid.”
