Woman horrified after finding out that toilet she was using was visible to outsiders

Chicago, USA: Comedian Tamale Rocks spotted something odd when she used the restroom at a bar she was performing in.
Opposite the toilet was a full-length mirror.
On closer inspection it turned out to be a two-way mirror, meaning that people on the other side of the mirror could see her on the loo.
The mirror was placed on a door, which Tamale opened and then found a cleaning closet to be on the other side.
So, in theory, employees at the bar could lock themselves in the cleaning closet and watch women in the restroom without the women having any knowledge they were being watched.
"This woman is looking for a viral video"
The comedy venue is located in Chicago, and is called Cigars and Stripes. But the owner of the establishment told Jezebel.com that Tamale Rocks was just attention seeking, and that there is no intention to move the two-way mirror.
"Do you know that mirror’s been there for the longest time. That woman opened the door. I mean she opened the door, there’s nothing in there. Open the door and pee and do what you want. Quite frankly I’m enjoying people calling, because I’m selling chicken wings.
"Look, this woman is looking for a viral video. There’s a big movement in reality TV to be outraged about feminism."
'There's only one way in...'
Some who have defended the bar online claim that the only way to get into the broom cupboard is to go through the restroom itself, meaning the person would be seen by whoever is using the toilet.
But that wouldn't stop somebody from sneaking into the cupboard while nobody else is using the restroom, and hiding in their while women came in and out of the toilet.
