GUARDIA Civil accused of creating an ‘embarrassing spectacle’ with TikTok video
The Guardia Civil has come under fire for a TikTok video posted by the Benemerita Police Force in the Basque Country of officers dancing to the hit song, Jerusalema. The footage, which is just under one minute long, was originally posted by the group on October 12, but the Union de Oficiales de la Benemerita heavily criticised it on Monday, November 30 for portraying the force negatively.
The video shows a number of officers in hazmat suits performing the viral dance moves at an airport, seaport and heliport, and displaying a sign reading ‘Do you know where these Civil Guards are from?’ The unfortunate irony is that Bilbao can clearly be seen in the background shots.
The Union has called the display an ‘embarrassing spectacle’ and refers to a ‘feeling of shame’ at what they view as ‘satisfying personal interests instead of looking at the good image of the force.’
