The unpleasant footage understandably sparked outrage among netizens, with some calling the man a “degenerate.”
It’s unclear who the streamer is, but copies of the footage have been reposted on multiple sites this week.
In the video, the man is seen carefully approaching before touching the woman from behind, clearly without her consent.
“No, don’t do that!” the streamer yells as the man launches his hand. “Don’t do that, dude.”
The woman, who stands with a man believed to be her boyfriend, then turns around in horror.
A confrontation ensues as the woman’s boyfriend responds in apparent anger.
The drunk man audaciously paces to fight even after his actions.
The man’s two companions are seen breaking the tension and pulling him away from the couple.
“What was that dude?” the streamer asks. “What was that move?”
The man then yells at the couple in Japanese, while his companion relieves the streamer with an “OK” sign.
The confrontation eventually breaks and the streamer goes on his own way.
“He tried to f***in’ … What?!” the streamer says in shock. “Bro, that dude’s tried to grab that girl. What the f*** was that? What the hell was that?”
The video, which landed on Reddit, drew scathing reactions and various interpretations from users.
