After she uploaded the video on both her Instagram and TikTok accounts, this video quickly got viral and has amassed 559,000 views and nearly 10,000 likes due to Lovein Dubai repost.

But one user absolutely condemned this act saying, ‘This is inhuman. I’m sure her feet hurt like crazy and when we have regular dummies why do we even need this?’, Another user also echoed similar sentiments saying, ‘This is slavery.’

In contrast, some user were supporting this act, saying ‘Next level marketing. Nice one.’ and even humorously said, someone has a lot of money for marketing. Notably, the model also responded to this user with laughter emojis.

Another supporting this act, said, ‘I think it’s like ramp walk so what slavery, beautiful girl luring customers and girl getting paid for her work nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so have a life.’

However, one user gave another perspective on how to look at this incident and said,

‘Everyone saying this is slavery, inhuman, uncomfortable. Just like everyone else, we all have our own discomfort at work, we all get some pain whether it’s on foot, back, hands whatever. She’s getting paid just like we get, plus think about the security guards in the malls, they stand all the time too. We all are struggling and that’s what makes us strong.’
