Makbule Özgün Kılıç, who stated that they had a hard time after the video spread on social media and media, said. “When we woke up in the morning, we saw the videos we took on television and social media, and we were all insulted. We have received harassment and threatening messages. Because we were 3 women, sexist insults were made. Those who watched the video and news recognized us when they saw us, ‘Aren’t you firefighter girls?’ they ask. We had problems at our workplace. We were told that we published this video to become famous. If we had such a purpose, we would not have closed our accounts after the incident. We are going through very difficult days and we are receiving psychological support” said.
Dilay Güngör also expressed her sadness about what happened, “As my friend fulfilled his childhood dream, we also shared his happiness. We’ve never been in traffic anyway. Then the reactions and insults began to come. Stones were thrown on us by people. We’re sorry because we didn’t know things would come here. It was a very childish affair.” said.
Lawyer Asil Kocaçınar stated that they complained about threatening and insulting messages, “We started the legal process as a result of being exposed to insults and other messages with criminal elements, which were shared on different channels on social media. We will fight to the end legally so that those who commit these crimes receive the necessary punishments.” said.
