A fight erupted in the streets of Zhengzhou on Tuesday between two angry women and a suspected mistress.
A passerby snapped pictures as the two older women beat the younger woman and proceed to tear off her clothes and even snip at her hair with a pair of scissors. Finally, police arrived to break up the fight, NetEase reports.
A resident surnamed Li witnessed the scuffle. He said that when he was crossing the road he noticed three woman tangling with one another, two of them were trying to grab hold of a young woman in a red top and black dress. As the young woman tried to break free, she was subject to harsh slaps on the face. The two older women even cut off some of her long black hair which was left scattered around on the ground.
“Of course, the scene attracted a bunch of people, but it wasn’t good,” Li recalled.
By now, netizens on Weibo have grown well-accustomed to brutal attacks on mistresses from scorned wives, still they haven’t figured out why the women don’t take out more of their frustration on their cheating husbands.
“Another embarrassing public display of violence. I just don’t get why wives always put all the blame on mistresses. Shame on them!” one wrote.
“From what I’ve seen those barbaric women only embarrass themselves by violating mistresses in public,” another commented.
“Why do women always resort to fighting after discovering that their husbands are having an affair?” one web user inquired.
Last month, there were at least two incidents of furious wives beating the hell out of suspected mistresses. In one viral video a wife and mother teamed up to lay the smack down on a young lady.
And in another just as shocking video, a group of women were seen shoving a topless young woman to the ground, taunting her by asking “Does he try to protect you now?”
Once again, if you’re going to be a mistress in China, take some self-defense classes first.
