Critics have expressed concern of their privacy being violated with the glasses recording their every move without their consent.

As privacy experts nearly predicted, it was only a matter of time before something like this happened: A woman was reportedly attacked in San Francisco Friday night for wearing Google Glass in a bar.

According to CBS, tech writer Sarah Slocum was showing a friend how to use the glasses-mounted computer at the popular San Francisco dive bar Molotov’s. Slocum was reportedly recording scenes from the bar when she was approached by two women and a man who started an altercation and pulled the glasses from her face. Slocum said she recovered the glasses, but her purse and phone were stolen.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, someone told Slocum that she and her tech friends were “destroying the city.”

Slocum recounted the incident on her Facebook page.
