Instead of hauling ass, the crab made the heroic decision to casually sit on the same spot where it landed, accidentally turning off the electric stove used to cook its three remaining friends inside the wok.
Netizens, however, were not amused by the video clip that’s been circulating online. Many are calling out the inhumane treatment of the crabs, as they struggle to get out of the wok while being boiled alive.
It makes you wonder that even crabs have feelings and you cant blame them, and we don’t stop and think that all creatures have the ability to feel pain and distress,” one user wrote on its comment in Daily Mail.
