In a video titled “online classes gone wrong india – trolling teacher during lockdown,” the unknown individual crashed a Zoom class and said, “Do you remember me? I was the one who was farting in your class.”

The individual pointed the camera at a can of gasoline and said, “Do you remember my farts?” The host immediately removed the individual from the meeting, and they entered another Zoom class.

Most of the videos include minors, and in some videos, the list of first and last names of attendees is visible.

Some people featured in Sun Bae’s videos have had to delete their social media accounts due to the harassment they faced after the video was posted, according to CNN-News 18. “It was very traumatizing,” one student said. “My friends and I received messages about the video from unknown people on our social media accounts.”

Parents expressed concerns regarding the safety and educational issues these Zoom crashes cause. Multiple parents filed complaints to the country’s cyber crime department, CNN-News 18 reported.

“Such kind of actions creates disruption while an online class is in progress and upset the classroom environment,” a parent told CNN-News 18. “The government should urgently take necessary steps to strengthen the online safety and security and make these acts a clear criminal offence to protect students across the country.”
