Following a heated in-classroom debate a male postgraduate student at the Shanghai University of Sport caught up with one of his female classmates outside and tried to get her to come around to his point of view after she made him look silly in front of the class.
Rather than waste time with verbal arguments and logic, he opened with a strong smack to the back of the head.
And followed that up with a few swift kicks.
Before making his closing argument.
Video of the disgusting attack went viral on Chinese social media yesterday becoming a trending topic with netizens asking for the male student to be expelled or worse.
Instead, the university has responded with a statement saying that the female student was taken to the hospital and did not sustain any injuries from the attack. The male student later visited the hospital to apologize to her in person. The university added that it would handle the case according to school regulations and following further investigation.
