A shocking video clip has recently gone viral on Chinese social media showing a group of middle school boys surrounding a female classmate, and going in one by one to kiss her on the lips with the obviously unwilling girl trying to cover up her face with her hand.
Later in the video, a few of the boys can be seen motioning as if grabbing her genitals and buttocks. On the outside of the circle, other boys look on with smirks on their faces.
The incident reportedly took place at a middle school in Wuchuan county, Guangdong province after school let out on March 5th. The school has said that they have already dealt with the matter, but has failed to divulge any details. Meanwhile, the local education bureau has launched an investigation.
However, one education bureau employee told reporters that the incident did not cause any harm to the girl, and that the boys were just “playing.”
Obviously, that’s not quite how many Chinese netizens see it. “If they are not punished severely, they will grow up and commit rape,” predicted one Weibo user. “Dating will get you expelled, but forcibly kissing is “playing,” the education system is completely insane,” wrote another.
