Female comedian, Tamale Rocks made a shocking discovery before a stand-up gig at an Illinois bar. Rocks was using the ladies’ room when she noticed something odd about the full-length mirror on the wall across from the toilet. As she began to closely investigate, she noticed a door that led to a cleaning closet. In the cleaning closet was the back of the mirror with a clear view of the woman’s toilet. Rocks chronicled her discovery in a video, which has gone viral.
Rocks has since spoke out about the incident, saying she feels extremely violated.
“As an interdisciplinary performer, often in the public view, I retain certain expectations of privacy. There was no one in there at the time of discovery- thankfully. And there could have been. And maybe there has been. And maybe they were watching, or maybe more.”
The two-way mirror has led to an investigation by police, but authorities don’t seem to be too worried about the discovery, according to Rocks.

I wonder if the haters who say it was "no big deal" will think it's a big deal when their wife/ daughter discover someone behind the mirror.

Despite the possibility of legal action, the bar’s owner, Ronnie Lottz says the mirror has been there since 2001 and isn’t going anywhere.
“I will burn this f—-ng place to the ground before I get rid of that mirror,’ he told Jezebel. “Do you know how much joy that mirror has brought to us? We’re synonymous with Halloween. We do a freaky family fun day, and all the kids look in the mirror.”
Lottz sticks to his story that there is nothing illegal going on with the two-way mirror.
With more than two million views, Rocks has received tons of support on social media.
