A video of a young mother severely beating a young child for a good four minutes has gone viral, raising the ire of netizens who spoke out against this overzealous display of corporal punishment.
The woman removed the girls’ trousers down to her knees and whipped her face, legs and head with a stick; she also gave the child dozens slaps and kicked the child on her head. The child wailed in pain throughout the four minute long video.
The video has sparked online backlash among outraged netizens.
The one who bore the brunt of criticism was also the person who filmed the video footage, as he did nothing to intervene in the woman’s beatings.
Some called on for a human flesh search to identify the woman in the video.
Here’s the video:
