During an Uber ride from Planned Parenthood in Florida, a driver turned on music to cheer her passengers up and drown out those protesting for their lives. Now, TikTok is praising the act of kindness.

The original video has garnered more than 5 million views and 1 million likes as commenters praise the driver for her quick thinking and positive energy.

In the original video, user @madamkumba is seen in the driver’s seat setting the music system up to Khia’s famously clear song “My Neck, My Back (Lick It)”. In the text overlay, she claimed that protesters harassed passengers.

She left what appeared to be a Planned Parenthood parking lot, where protesters were lining the street with signs reading “Pray to End Abortion.”

@madamkumba shouted from the window, “Lick it well! Let’s go!” as she inflates the passenger, who can be heard laughing behind the camera.

Video-sharing apps have recently come out in defense of drivers taking customers to abortion clinics. Due to Texas’ restrictive abortion laws, Lyft and Uber announced they will create a legal protection fund for any drivers sued under the new law.

TikTok was flooded with comments to cheer and dance with @madamkumba.

Comedian and TV presenter Chelsea Handler commented: “That’s right!”

“Someone got a seat in Congress for this woman. The sooner the better,” said ari_bigsisteroftiktok

The Planned Parenthood Vermont Action Fund account commented, “oh em gee” along with some crown emojis.

“This really brought me to tears, we need more of you,” alixdanii shared.

In one follow up In the video, the driver says she doesn’t know the passengers nor why she’s at Planned Parenthood. She said she shared the video because “women need to help other women”. She also criticized pro-life protesters for harassing women who went for reproductive health checks.

“Support your women’s health facilities,” she said. “Donate as much as you can because we will need it.”

Uber, Planned Parenthood and @madamkumba did not immediately respond to Daily Dot’s request for comment.
