    It appears that the scene occurred at her boyfriend's funeral, making netizens wonder if it was some kind of ritual, criticise her for indecent behaviour, and even make jokes about the video.

    Footage of a young woman dancing on top of a coffin in front of a cheering crowd has gone viral on social media.

    The woman was captured twerking on top of her boyfriend's coffin during a funeral with hip-hop music playing in the background, while at the same time she seems to be crying and bends over from time to time to place a kiss. According to media reports, the scene took place in Ecuador.

    Netizens were left divided in their comments about the scene, but most felt awkward, wondering if it was some kind of tradition or just her own way of expressing grief.

    A lot of users still said it was a disrespectful thing to do at a funeral, adding that they would not tolerate it if encountered in real life.

    Other Twitterians referred to a belief that people who passed away would want us not to grieve but to live a happy life, even without them.
