Why was there a fight between a girl and PR person at a NYFW afterparty?

The video posted by @shopsyro on TikTok has 9.4 million views as of writing this article. It shows a man whom the creator calls "Mullet Babe" and a woman fighting at a door.

In the video, we hear Mullet Babe say, "You're from Canada so you don't f--king know. That's why you're not coming in. You're not welcome because I don't like you." The woman says, "You are not the PR person," to which Mullet Babe says, "I am a PR person you dumb f--k."

As the video continues, Mullet Babe goes, "I wish you well," over and over and the woman says that she isn't speaking to him. The woman ends up leaving because she can't get into the party.

The creator of TikTok replied to a comment with another video explaining the context of what went down:

"OK. So here's what happened. Everybody was waiting in line. We're outside an afterparty for something. And then this girl, super rude to everyone, cuts the entire line and then demands that she's a paid influencer. What's a paid influencer? Screaming that she's getting paid. She needs to be inside... and then she turns around and points at the rest of us waiting in line and being like, 'I'm being paid to be here, unlike these moochers.'"

@shopsyro was very much on the side of the PR person at the door, saying that the woman was the villain.

And who is the woman you ask? She goes by @moxeb on both TikTok and Instagram and has a pretty big following: 191.7K on TikTok and 63.1K on Instagram.

But more importantly, who is Mullet Babe? Well, that is one Markus Kelle. And he not only is a doorman, he is THE doorman. So much so, that The New York Times has even written about him.

So maybe @moxeb was supposed to be paid to be at that party, but if you're rude to Markus, you aren't getting in. Sorry babe, but we wish you well.

Markus has already made merch from his viral fight with his one-liners "I wish you well," and "I'm matching your volume" and we are here for it. Get your bag, King.
