Mystikal is trending on Twitter after a video of a teen girl fighting off a brown bear went viral on social media.

In the TikTok video, home security footage showed several dogs running up to a mama bear that was walking along a fence in a California neighborhood. Out of nowhere, the teen, who has been identified as Hailey, emerged and bravely shoved the mama bear off the fence to save her dogs. She then ran back inside her home with her pets.

A woman who claimed to be the bear fighter’s cousin shared the video on Instagram. “My cousin Hailey (@bittersweet.brat) just fought a fucking mama bear and won! How’s your Memorial Day weekend?” she captioned the post.

As the video began to spread across social media, fans couldn't help but bring up Mystikal’s infamous freestyle where he rapped about fighting a grizzly bear. Back in 2012, the “Shake Ya Ass” emcee appeared on the “Invasion Radio Show” and spit, “If you ever see me fightin’ in the forest with a grizzly bear, help the bear!”

Hailey, who sprained her finger and hurt her ankle during the incident, later said she “fought off a bear to protect her kids.”

“I go to tell them to stop and when I go over there to see what they’re barking at I’m like, that’s a funny-looking dog,” she added. “By the time I get there, the bear is literally picking up one of my dogs … I go over the bear and the first thing I think to do is push it, push a bear. Push an Apex predator. To be honest, I don’t think I pushed her that hard. I just pushed her enough to make her lose her balance. So, she drops my dog and I run out of there.”
