Yet another shocking video starring an alleged mistress being beaten in public by an angry wife has gone viral on Chinese social media, only this time, the young woman is rescued by her Prince Charming.
In the video, three women and one man are seen surrounding a half-naked young woman who is weeping in distress with her clothes torn to shreds and a chunk of her hair cut off. A reporter for Sina News confirmed that a fight had broken out between a suspected mistress and a wife in front of a hair salon in Fuzhou on Wednesday, attracting a crowd of bystanders to do what they do best — record the scene without offering any help and then upload it to the internet.
Some of the onlookers even smirked at the poor woman, saying “Hey! Another mistress again!”
With the help of her relatives, the wife cornered the young woman and proceeded to rip off her clothes. Standing on the street in such a disheveled state, she was heard weeping and screaming for help.
Surprisingly, a man did rush to her side, the husband. He put his arms around the young woman’s waist and shielded her from his wife and her minions. The fight escalated from there, with the wife throwing the young woman’s phone to the ground and snipping away at her clothes and hair with a pair of scissors (Planning to confront your husband’s mistress in public? Don’t forget to bring a pair of scissors!)
With a knot of the young’s woman hair in her hands, the wife and husband seem to have some sort of discussion that finally leads to a resolution to the fight. The wife lets go and the mistress is led away.
According to one insider, the suspected mistress is in her twenties, while the man is in his forties. They have been dating for a while and both work in the same textile factory where they first met.
While netizens have become very familiar with this kind of outrageous event, they were pleasantly surprised that the husband actually got involved this time around:
“At least the husband in this case ‘manned up’ and actually came out of hiding to protect the mistress,” one netizen commented.
“Why does this kind of embarrassment always happen in China? Seriously, the wife might think she punished the mistress, but really she just showed the entire world how completely shallow she really is,” another wrote.
Watch the video below:
It was only a few days ago that the last alleged mistress was beaten, slapped and stripped naked on the street in China.
But hey, it could have been worse, at least the guy cared enough to step in this time.
