Video of the incident goes viral November 24 and strucked various responses from those who already watched. A parody of the original video also hits online exagerrating the incident.

Many says that the video does not tell the whole story but the girl should have handled it correctly, not that scandalous act.

In an interview by GMA News, Salvosa said she is willing to resolve the issue with the security guard, though it was the lady guard who raised her voice initially. She would not have reacted that way if the guard had treated her well.

Salvosa also said she is a victim of cyberbullying. She also denied that she owns the Twitter account name @paulaharlow, as she has already deactivated her Twitter and Facebook accounts.

"I want to be an example na may karapatan naman tayo. Cyberbullying ito," she said.
