Angry Mob boos US tourist who climbed a protected Mayan pyramid in Mexico: 'lock her up'

Footage of a woman climbing the steps of a protected Mayan pyramid in Mexico as a crowd of people call her out has blown up online, with many viewers accusing her of being disrespectful.

One version of the clip, which was uploaded by TikTok user @angelalopeze on November 21 and has received 3.7 million views, shows an unidentified woman scaling the steps of the Chichén Itzá, also known as El Castillo, a historical Mayan site in Yucatán, Mexico, that's been declared a UNESCO world heritage site.

[quote] @angelalopeze this is so disrespectful… don’t mess with my Mexican people 🇲🇽 #chichenitza #disrespectful #mayanpyramid #vacation #crazy #viral ♬ original sound - ang

The woman can be seen walking up the pyramid and dancing on the steps. She is followed by what appears to be a member of security who gestures for her to come down.

A gathering crowd can be heard shouting at the woman as she makes her way down the steps. At the bottom, she's met by a throng of people who boo her and throw water in her direction as she's escorted away. The chants from the crowd, mostly in Spanish, include, "out," "lock her up," and "jail!"

The caption on the TikTok video reads, "this is so disrespectful… don't mess with my Mexican people." Many of the top comments appeared to agree, while others highlighted the safety risks involved in the climb.

One comment with over 8,000 likes said, "I don't understand why they want to climb it. It's so steep, and it's historical. I mean one mistake and they're tumbling to their death."

Another video of the incident posted on Twitter which has over 7.1 million views shows the woman being led through the crowd of people throwing bottles in her direction, and one person can be seen grabbing her hair.

While tourists used to be able to climb the pyramid, Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) has prohibited visitors from climbing the monuments since 2008. According to Mexico's federal law on archaeological, artistic, and historic monuments and areas, anyone who violates or desecrates such areas is subject to a sanction and a fine of up to 50,000 pesos ($2,572.97).

A statement provided to Insider by Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History confirmed the woman, identified as a tourist, "breached the ban to access the steps of El Castillo, affecting the operation of the site."

"The Ministry of Culture and the INAH call on the general public to respect the provisions established for public visits to archaeological zones and historical sites, which are determined to guarantee a safe and enjoyable experience," the statement continued. "As well as to guarantee the conservation of heritage sites."

It added that the incident had been transferred to the Yucatán public safety authorities.

Local law enforcement in Yucatán did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Not r3, I'm not defending that idiot tourist, but you really need to get a grip.

First, as others have pointed out, the ban on climbing is only from 2008, so it's not as if it's a sacred holy ground that shouldn't be desecrated.

Second, MANY similar World Heritage sites from Angkor Wat to Machu Picchu allow tourists to climb extensively through them, so asking how well it was marked is a legitimate question.

That person's behavior was terrible, but ignoring the restriction a legal violation, not moral one. Now, her behavior while climbing and dancing on the site was disrespectful, but the actual climbing itself wasn't some cultural transgression.

I also climbed it years ago. It has 91 steps and each one is about a foot high, so on a hot and humid day it's grueling.

Coming down was much more difficult. The guide recommended putting your feet diagonally because the depth of each step is shorter than a lot of people's feet. I stayed toward the edge away from people using the rope or going down 1 step at a time on their butts.

It's an amazing structure - the 91 steps per side plus the final shared step at the top = 365 for the days of the year. It makes you wonder how in the hell did they cut the stones so perfectly and build so high without modern tools and cranes.

It's simpler than all that. The rules are in place simply to protect an historic structure from the effects of 2.5M tourists who visit it annually.

In the 1840s trees grew out of the Temple of Kukulcán, and until recent years visitors could climb its steps. Both of those things have changed, both in the interests of preserving the structure.

I climbed it before they put a stop to that, sometime in the 00's, and coming down, as noted above, is 91 steps of slippery hell. Or maybe I had the wrong shoes. Anyway, those stones have been smoothed by the centuries. How she got down them staying upright let alone "danced," especially if she were high or whatever, is a small miracle.

I commented on the "mob" behaviour and stand by that comment, R84. You can feel the ugly energy in that video, how close that situation is to more serious violence. I'm not sure how that lets this dumbass off the hook at all, though. She can be a complete asshole (which it appears she is, although apparently not an American one), AND that crowd can be a mob. One being awful doesn't somehow make the other not-awful.

The "ban has only been in effect since 2008" comments are in response to the poster losing their shit earlier in the thread about great cultural offense and HOW DARE YOU etc. - they're countering that poster specifically, not trying to excuse what this woman did. She fucked up, no one is saying otherwise. But people were walking all over that pyramid as recently as ~14 years ago so there's obviously not some super-sensitivie cultural taboo about touching/walking on the stones in place. Which to be clear, and again: doesn't make what this woman did OK.

As for the artwork I was actually in those threads, 1 of 2 people commenting on the mob-like mentality of many of the posters there indulging themselves in exactly the kind of delicious/self-righteous outrage we see in the video and continually posting about great art being "destroyed" when those protestors are very obviously only chucking paint at works that are entirely protected from being damaged. Mob behaviour is shit, and I refuse to call it out only in some instances and not in others.

FFS, it's not about deferring to the sensitivities of a lost society of child sacrifice and advanced early writing systems, it's about preserving the physical monuments of our collective history and artistic heritage.

In England in the past a person in decent clothes could present himself at the door of any great country house and give the housekeeper a few coins for a tour when the owners were not in residence. There photos of people having meals in Egyptian tombs in the 1920s. People used to smoke on the London Tube, in airplanes, in some museums. The White House used to be open for one and all to wander in, have a look around, admire the artifacts of the Lewis & Clarke expedition, or to try to pigeonhole the president or his staff.

Rules change. The pyramid is recognized as an historic and artistic monument visited not by a few thousands of people each year but by 2.8M people. Safety of the visitors and protection of the very resource they have come to visit sometimes mean that rules change.

"Well they let people climb to the top 14 years ago" doesn't give license to do it today.

FFS it's a 1000 - 1500 year old world heritage site of the highest significance crawling with 2.8M tourists a year. The protections are in place to preserve the monument.

I took a dump in Abe Lincoln's lap 14 years ago. Everyone was doing it in 2008.

I think her dancing pushed the crowd over the edge.

It was horrible!

[quote] Are there any Mexicans here? Is this an organic reaction or is this a crowd of other tourists getting their mob on? Don't come for me, I'm not excusing this dumbass, but there's something tempting about being a part of that kind of juicy collective condemnation that I think some of us love a little too much. Would also like to know how clear it was that climbing this structure was not OK. Is this just a moron we're dealing with, or a consciously malicious moron?

Every time some stupid person blonde woman pulls these stunts a DLer comes out to white knight for her, tutting at people condemning her, wanting to “hear the whole story” and assuming there is a lack of signage.

For fuck’s sake r3.

Did she spit on a God? Jesus fucking Christ. Was it blasphemy? Sacrilege? Some ugly looks and ppinting/whispering would suffice. She didn't deserve mass condemnation for dancing on a thing that was hidden by forest for centuries before it was discovered in the 19th or 20th century. How important could it be if y'all FORGOT IT WAS THERE for centuries?

I hope her next move is to a climb on the roof of a former slave plantation and film a tik tok video there.

Or maybe to the driveway in front of Kate Middleton’s house at Windsor Park and film a sex tape there.

This whole thing is so bizarre it looks staged. Who becomes so enraged over something like this that they mob and pull the woman’s hair? She climbed some steps. Calm down. Fine her, publish her image, but physically attacking her?

People are out of fucking OUT OF CONTROL right now. Human society needs to pull its shit together.

You were literally shown R19 in MULTIPLE posts before your ridiculous self righteous anger embarrassingly manifested, that people used to climb it ALL THE TIME, that there were ropes in place to assist people in climbing until just a few years ago.

CALM DOWN.

I was there in the 90s. I wanted to climb the stairs; inspired by the beginning of Gin Miller’s Reebok Step workout (remember her?) I got a quarter way up and turned around so my Mom could take a picture. That was a mistake as it made me a little dizzy so I crawled back down. I do remember being able to see some graffiti in the temple at the top.

The climbing ban probably arose from wanting to protect the site as well as a safety to the visitors. If she was there as part of a tour, I’m sure the guide expressly told them NOT to climb the stairs and mentioned the barriers. She was stupid enough to do it anyway.

The difference is that if a similar mob had formed in America, this woman would have been shot to death.

What that woman did was ugly. Watching that mob grow nasty was ugly. There was ugly all around.

[quote]Quote any racism you have read in this thread.

Oh, please. Anyone who has been on DL for years like myself, sees the difference in reaction to behavior by white people vs. others. It's like a fucking dinnerbell going off for hyenas if it's a crime or something said by a non-white person. Had the killer in Colorado been black or Hispanic or Muslim, the racist gay white hyenas on here would've gone off on the millions of blacks, Hispanic and Muslims who had nothing to do with that *individual* had done. Do you see people blaming all white people in those threads?

I've been on platforms where it was predominantly white heteros. Many gay white men are far more hateful and prejudice than them. I mean the idiotic obsession with whether someone is "white" enough alone, is pathetic.

So a Mexican woman with a sad blonde wig is publicly shamed trying for climbing and dancing on a ruin, and r125 puts the blame on a black Walmart killer.

R125 is a shithead, popping in to validate all the "anyone who mentions the mob is a RACIST" trolls in one racist post. Well done, R125.

Also this woman being a Mexican herself now makes it awkward for the racists *and* the virtue signalers in this thread. Yay.

Agreed that the mob's rage was creepy and out there. It was anti-American/anti-white animosity. One suspects that like some posters on this thread, the mob mistook her for a blonde whitey American or other tourist of Northern European ethnicity. Had she been dark-haired and dark-skinned of apparent Latin ethnicity the disapproval would have been present but notched down.

[Quote]Officials said that Abigail Villalobos had attempted to pass herself off as a Spaniard after she was arrested for her viral stunt, but it has since been determined that she is actually from Mexico.

She sounds (and looks) off. She received a fine of only about $250 so, boys, if you want to climb Mayan pyramids that's the meager entry fee.
