A tourist who defied local laws and climbed up the pyramid at Mexico’s Chichen Itza archaeological site has been booed and mobbed by an angry crowd.

Footage went viral on TikTok and Twitter of the woman climbing up the ancient Mayan Temple of Kukulcan, also known as El Castillo, with a crowd of tourists and locals booing her, with some saying she was being disrespectful.

She then posed and danced on top of the pyramid, before she was removed by a security guard.  

When she came down, some in the crowd shoved her, threw things at her, drenched her with water and, in one case, pulled her hair.

The woman has been arrested, the Cancun Sun reports.
