A video clip documented by the camera lens of American standup comedian Jamie Pappas at the Heinz Wildlife Sanctuary showed two turtles, one of whom was slapped several times, sparking a wide interaction around the video, which achieved millions of views, according to CNN.

The 29-year-old shared the video during her trip to the Sanctuary.

"I put a lot of time and effort into my videos, but of course it's the turtles I post that get all the attention and slapping seems to be quite a trend these days," Pappas told local media.
