After Australian YouTuber Luke Damant, Scottish YouTuber Dale Philip has become the latest victim of the horse ride scam.
In a YouTube video, Dale was seen being scammed by a horse rider at Karachi’s Clifton beach. He sat on a horse after the rider told him it would cost Rs. 200 for a ride but later extended the ride even when Dale wanted to get off the horse. Once he was off, the rider demanded Rs. 5000.
Given that there was a language barrier between the two, the horse rider intimidated Dale by shouting at him. This entire scenario was caught on camera, making its way to Dale’s YouTube channel.
Within 3 hours, the Karachi police arrested the three horsemen that were seen in Dale’s YouTube video, which went viral on social media. The reason behind the arrest was due to the misbehavior of these horsemen with a tourist.

In case you have missed the video titled ‘Avoid this horse rides SCAM in Karachi, Pakistan’ on YouTube, watch below:
“May God free us from the shackles of white people,” tweeted a user on Twitter. Another user tweeted, “There’s nothing more vile and disgusting than a white tourist visiting a poor inflation-ridden country and power-tripping on seaside vendors.”
Pakistani users on Twitter weren’t happy with Dale’s YouTube video. It seemed as if Dale went to the beach on purpose to shoot the video for his YouTube after Luke had an unfortunate encounter on the Clifton beach.
Content creator Ansar tweeted saying, “hmm I’m sensing a pattern here with dale philip’s videos.”

Another Twitter user tweeted, “If the corruption being done on a bigger scale isn’t being held accountable doesn’t mean the one done at a smaller scale should be neglected.”
The user concluded, “Goray k kehne pr hi krlo, karo to!!”
Trying to find reasons for the hatred towards Dale Philip on tl. He just did what should be done?
If the corruption being done on bigger scale isn't being held accountable doesn't mean the one done at a smaller scale should be neglected too.
