A man has been caught out for taking pictures of women at an airport, in a now-viral video shared to TikTok.

The video was uploaded earlier this week by TikTok user, @bailzherb and has since been viewed over four million times.

In the video, the two women are seen approaching the man at the airport, explaining in the caption he was following them and taking pictures of them.

They asked the man if he was taking photos of them.

"No, why?" the man asks.

"We were just told you were taking photos of us," one of the girls says in response.

The girls ask to see the man's camera roll and he declines and tries to walk off, the girl's question why they can't see his camera roll if he wasn't taking photos of them.

He continues to deny taking photos of them and starts walking off again.

"I'll get rid of it," he says.

"Sir, it's really weird to take pictures of females in public without permission, so you should never do that again," one of the women said.

"Imagine if we were your daughter or someone related to you."

The man again tries to walk off, saying he will deleted them, but the women insists he deletes them in front of them.

He deletes the photos from his camera roll and the women tell him to go to his recently deleted folder.

When he declines, @bailzherb pans the camera up, so the man's face is in the shot and she questions whether anybody knows the man.

"Is this someone's dad who takes pictures of females in public?'" she asks.

He tries to hush the woman, but they say they will call him out, because what he did was "f**king weird".

"I know some people won’t understand why we are so upset/mad but this happens WAY too often and it’s violating and creepy," @bailzherb wrote on TikTok.

Viewers quick to praise women in video comments

People were quick to point out the man is wearing a wedding band and he does mention his son in his interaction with the women — many hoped the TikTok video would get back to his family.

In the comments, people were supportive of @bailzherb and her friend and applauded them for how they handled the situation.

People said they handled the situation "perfectly" and said the man's actions were "sick".

"I'm glad you embarrassed him," one person said on TikTok.

"You handled this perfectly."

"I'm so proud of you," another person said.

"I could never, I would be too scared but that was amazing."
