Conspiracy theorist confronts 5G contractors in Murrumbeena, Melbourne trends now
Extraordinary footage has emerged of contractors standing their ground after they were confronted by a conspiracy theorist while setting up 5G in a suburb.
The men were installing a small 5G Telstra cell in Murrumbeena, in Melbourne's south-east on Wednesday morning.
A woman then approached them expressing her concern about the close proximity of the cell to nearby homes and a school.
She filmed the heated confrontation where she launched into a bizarre rant falsely claiming the residents would be exposed to the highest level of radiation.
The workmen were interrupted by a conspiracy theorist while installing a small 5g cell in a Melbourne street on Wednesday
Armed with paperwork, she calls out to the workmen and asks if they're 'happy' to be installing the 5G cell.
'We sure are,' a contractor replied.
The woman accuses the contractor of 'assault' when he calls her a 'tin foil hat', a term used to refer to someone who believes in conspiracy theories.
'You don't have the right to laugh at me when I'm concerned,' she said.
'Are you going to laugh now?'
The contractor replied: 'I am!'
The angry woman notes the man's workplace on his uniform and threatens to contact his company to make a complaint.
'I think you should,' the man suggested.
The no-nonsense contractor continues to stand his ground as his colleagues get on with the job.
'We're here doing our job legally and we're being accosted by you,' he firmly told the woman.
'You shouldn't even be here on our job site. We're not here to cause you grief. You're here to cause us grief. You're very worked up for no reason.'
As the woman unleashed into a tirade about 5G, most of the contractors continued working
