A group of brutish groomsmen recently made it a wedding to remember for one young bridesmaid in Guangdong province who was sprayed with colored foam before being viciously doused by a fire extinguisher.
The groomsmen arrived at the bride’s home in rural Sanqing village with a red envelope to give to the bride. While they were there, they abducted a bridesmaid, surrounded her, and began spraying her with colored foam as she tried to cover up and save her dress.
Eventually, one of the men is seen yanking away her jacket while another comes from behind and douses her with a fire extinguisher.
While there were reports that the bridesmaid had passed out during the incident, the brother of the bride told reporters that no one was harmed on the wedding day, only clothing.
Video of the incident has once again caused many Chinese netizens to speak out against the troubling tradition of “wedding pranks” against bridesmaids in China — “pranks” that all too often devolve into something very serious.
Back in June, a pair of groomsmen were arrested in Xi’an after video went viral of them sexually assaulting a bridesmaid in the backseat of a car. That same month, a bridesmaid died after falling from a 4th-floor balcony in rural Guangdong with some overly-enthusiastic groomsmen being suspected of having accidentally shoved her to her death.
