The above video has received over 200,000 views in the two days since it was uploaded. In the video, a Hong Kong woman repeatedly slaps her kneeling boyfriend on a public street.
The 20 year old woman was arrested for assaulting her 23 year old (hopefully now ex) boyfriend. The ugly altercation came about after the man allegedly cheated on the woman, Oriental Daily reports.
According to Hong Wrong:
His partner repeatedly shouts about him for ‘failing to treat her as a girlfriend’ whilst passers-by spoke out to the man, stating that the she “isn’t worth it”, calling for him to break up with her and disapproving of the beating. A female bystander engaged saying “stand up, ditch this ugly girl, you deserve better“, telling the woman that, whatever happened, “doesn’t warrant you slapping your boyfriend in the middle of the street“.
Perhaps if he’d just acted as a stool for her more often, this scene could have been avoided.
