Danielle shared her response, with some users believing she was the one in the wrong, while many others supported her.

"So I’m in Bunnings. This lady - she’s not old old, but she’s probably 60 - put her hand on my stomach and went, 'Oh, how far are you?'" Danielle explained. "I grabbed her hand, looked her in the eye, pushed it off and went ‘I’m not pregnant’ and then waddled away.

"I’m like nine months pregnant ... but don’t touch me," she added.

The video has since been viewed over 255,000 times with most people shocked that the stranger would touch someone without their consent.

"Love it 😂😂... Who thinks it's ok to do that to some people have no boundaries," one user wrote.

"What if she had recently miscarried? What if she actually wasn’t pregnant? This is never OK," another woman agreed.

"I don't understand why a complete stranger thinks it's OK to go up and touch someone's stomach?" a third wrote.

"This happened to me and I wasn’t pregnant and my belly wasn’t that big," someone else shared. "I had a top on that flared out but gosh she upset me."

"When I was pregnant I had an outy and a man poked my bellybutton through my shirt... in the shops...because his wife 'wouldn’t let him do it to her'," another woman added.

"Yes, yes, yes! Ask first," one man wrote.

"You did this for every woman who has been pregnant and has had a stranger touch their stomach. THANK YOU!!!!" one woman wrote.

One user, who Danielle pointed out looked like the woman who touched her, wrote, "Oh how terrible some lovely lady touching your stomach. God, what’s the problem?"

"The idea of a stranger touching my stomach like its public property makes me feel ill," one woman responded to her.

"Do not touch people without their consent," another added.

Another woman attempted to downplay Danielle's feelings, "I get it people shouldn't touch but I think it comes from a place of excitement at thought of new life. I try to educate not belittle."

"They’re adults, not kids and their lack of control is no excuse for invading someone’s space. I am pregnant and would have lost my mind here," one woman responded.
