    Over the weekend, American stand-up comedian Whitney Cummings visited London, where she came across "an open-air product" that she was seemingly surprised to see in the middle of the street - and her reaction has sent social media into a frenzy.

    London is experiencing a "crisis" that involves "dicks being literally everywhere", actress and comedian Whitney Cummings warned in a tweet, as she filmed herself near a man relieving himself in a public urinal in the middle of the day.

    "I made it to London and there are these new products where they just have urinals outside. I don't like this. Is this a Brexit thing? I disapprove. No thanks", she said.

    In a series of tweets, Cummings later clarified that she was not "triggered" by the open-air urinals, she simply posted the video because the situation was "funny" and she just "wasn't expecting so many people to be peeing so close to me at 2pm".

    Such public conveniences are not new, they were reportedly installed by British authorities nearly two decades ago in a bid to prevent people, usually highly inebriated, from urinating on the streets.

    Still, Cummings' bewilderment at the controversial "product" has sent her social media followers into a meltdown, with some agreeing that public urinals of that sort are somewhat awkward:

    One netizen couldn't resist taunting the comedian, saying that she had recently posted a photo on Instagram in which she was pictured relieving herself "in a random field":

    London is not the only city to have taken such measures to stop street urination: open-air urinals have been spotted in Paris, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, too.
