It is pretty common to see yelling fights in a city like Shanghai – but it’s not quite as common to see these fights actually come to blows… especially when it’s one guy against two girls.
According to a very active thread on Sohu, last week a man was filmed fighting two women on the No.2 subway line.
Perhaps because of the Shanghai man’s reputation as a more docile breed of Chinese (even the reporter mentions it), many netizens doubted that the person in the subway was actually from Shanghai.
Though one indignant commenter pointed out, “No matter what we Shanghainese do, we are looked and criticized under the magnifying glass. There are plenty of fights and crimes all over China; why are the things that happened in Shanghai always brought up to the front page of the newspapers?!”
