The scary altercation happened as Tallulah walked alone next to a busy road.
She was talking to her camera before the man rushes up behind her.
She screams and tells him to “stop it”.
He then walks off and Tallulah can be seen crying and saying “I’m okay, I’m okay”.

The famous streamer then tweeted about the incident.
She said: “Hey Awkwards I’m not streaming tomorrow. Going to police to report the incident that happened this afternoon.
“It’s gonna be traumatic but I must to make sure this doesn’t happen to any other girls. Or anyone else! Thanks for all your support today and your love!”
She also responded to some replies in which people said she shouldn’t have been travelling alone in Thailand.
Tallulah tweeted: “Just to make this clear. This did not happen today because:
- I’m in a developing country (btw Thailand isn’t ‘developing’…)
- I am white/European/foreigner
- I am a woman/solo female traveller in Asia
“THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED ANYWHERE! And in fact it DOES!!!”
