    Luna Montana, from California, wanted to try figure skating so she signed herself up for some lessons at a local rink.

    She video-taped herself throughout her first lesson to use for a YouTube video – but was shocked when she watched the footage back and discovered that she had accidentally caught a ‘disturbing’ conversation between two men who were sitting in the stands and watching her and the other young skaters practice their moves. 

    The men, who did not seem to be aware their conversation was being recorded, made many ‘disgusting’ comments about how they couldn’t stop watching the women skate – and one, who said he was 52 years old, even claimed he was ‘dreaming’ about them, despite admitting that they’re most likely underage. 

    Luna uploaded the uncomfortable moment to her TikTok account where it quickly went viral, gaining more than five million views in a matter of days – and leaving many people sickened by their words.

    ‘Caught two gross men talking about me at my figure skating lesson,’ she wrote in the clip.

    ‘I despise men!’ she added in the caption. 

    The two men began by discussing her skating before the conversation turned inappropriate.

    ‘It’s hard not to pay attention,’ said one of the men, after the other claimed that he hadn’t been watching.

    ‘Well I hear that,’ he agreed.

    ‘You know, she’s half naked. She’s only 15, I mean she looks like she’s 15, but she’s probably only 17,’ the first man added.

    Luna, who is 21, was wearing black yoga pants and a long sleeve shirt which covered most of her body for the lesson. She also donned a pink jacket for part of it, but took it off after she became hot.

    ‘When you’re young, especially if you’re, like, a woman you’re gonna probably express your sexuality,’ he continued. 

    The second man admitted, ‘I try not to look because I’m assuming everyone here is too young.’

    ‘I’m 52 so I’m like over the hill,’ the first said back to him. ‘I could dream but that’s all it is. I shouldn’t because you know, it’s not good. I’m 52, I’m over the hill, I’m married.’

    On YouTube, Luna explained that she discovered the ‘absolutely disgusting’ conversation during the editing process.

    One, who said he was 52 years old, even claimed he was 'dreaming' about them, despite admitting that they're most likely underage

    ‘I could not believe my ears,’ she said. ‘I’m literally sitting here editing this video, I did not know that was in this footage but I am so disturbed – I can’t believe I got that conversation on film.

    ‘The fact that he goes about and says it’s hard not to pay attention, that I’m “half naked” – literally most of my body is covered I’m not half naked.

    ‘Saying I’m expressing my sexuality – what are you saying? I’m so innocent, just trying to do a little figure skating and that has to happen?

    ‘This whole time, those men are just analyzing me, and sexualizing me in a way. The young girls who are actually there who are minors, these guys are [probably] thinking the same thing.

    ‘If they thought I was 15, I can’t even imagine. It’s so f**ked up, it makes me want to throw up.’

    Horrified, Luna admitted that she ‘doesn’t want to go back there’ in tight clothing anymore. 

    Horrified: Luna said their comments made her 'want to throw up' and that she wished she could 'slap them in the face'

    ‘Now I’m going to go back there and wear baggy clothing because that happened, it’s so messed up,’ she added.

    Not slowing down: She said that despite what went on, she still had a 'good time' at her first lesson, and that she is excited to continue on with this 'journey'

    ‘It’s just sad that us girls have to go through stuff like that. I still had a good time, I figure-skated away, I was completely unaware of the situation.

    ‘That makes it even more disgusting I wish I could just slap them in the face but maybe one day.’

    She said that despite what went on, she still had a ‘good time’ at her first lesson, and that she is excited to continue on with this ‘journey.’ 

    She concluded: ‘I think figure skating is absolutely stunning and requires so much mental and physical work, I cannot wait to see where it takes me. This is the first of many lessons, and I can’t wait to take you on this journey with me.’ 

    Many people took to the comment section of her video to share their dismay over the ‘repulsive’ men, with one writing, ‘”Express your sexuality?” She’s just wearing clothes… Just a kid wearing clothes while ice skating.’

    ‘And the worst part is they’re probably dads there with their kids,’ added another.

    Someone else said: ‘A young person should be able to wear anything and not be sexualized. It’s your internal problem for sexualizing them, not for what they wear.’

    ‘He agreed that they like 15-17 and still said he “can dream?”‘ asked a different user, who appeared to be in complete shock over the conversation.

    ‘The fact that a 52 year old man can openly talk about checking out women that even he thinks is younger than 17 is repulsive,’ wrote another person.

    ‘They’re literally children…? And they’re 52…? And they’re literally just wearing leggings and a top…?’ read a sixth comment.

    Another commenter said: ‘The fact that she’s almost completely covered with clothes.’

    ‘He’s old enough to be her father,’ pointed out a different viewer.

    ‘And this is accidentally recorded… Imagine what had already been said our whole lives,’ said someone else. 

    Other comments read, ‘I’m sick,’ and, ‘That is terrifying.’
