Instead, she said in a recent video, you want to bend at the knees and grab the skirt with both hands on either side.

She dubbed the advice a basic lady etiquette tip and captioned the video: “etiquette elegant woman.”

One commenter wrote in response: “Best Videos! Thank you! So many need to watch including myself.”

While many others also thanked her for sharing the tip, not all of her followers were impressed.

“I thought this was common sense,” one person commented.

“I think we all learned this watching Disney princesses growing up,” said another.

“This gives me such rich aunt vibes,” a third shot back.

“How do people not know this?” a fourth said.

The video has been viewed more than 1.7million times.

In another video, Li offers advice to men, saying they should always be first when entering through a revolving door so they can push for their female partners.

“Gentlemen should definitely go first,” the on-screen text reads in the video.

Li makes it clear in her other videos that men should always enter an establishment first.

Commenters bemoaned the tip, which they said had sexist undertones.

“etiquette = completely arbitrary rules of politeness that are in no way necessary today,” one commenter griped.

“God gave me TWO hands so I can push the door by myself,” said another.

But not every viewer felt similarly.

“Ppl are so upset in this comment section. This practice uses the traditional values of etiquette, and it has nothing to do with equality,” one TikToker wrote.
