Shocking images of a young Chinese woman’s vicious beating in western China’s Guangxi province have gone viral on micro-blogging website Weibo, Chinese media reported Tuesday.
Pictures of the wild beating, which reportedly occurred on July 21 outside a karaoke television bar in the south-eastern city of Yulin, show the unidentified woman being stripped and physically assaulted by a band of no less than four other woman. Some are seen pulling her hair, others kicking her in the midriff, and all the while passers-by standing and watching, with some filming the incident.
The helpless victim – who was wearing a black top and grey leggings before being stripped – can be seen curled up on the floor, shielding her chest as the other woman undress her in public. According to netizens on Weibo, the attackers were justifying their assault by saying that the young victim of the beating was apparently a mistress, and one of her attackers was the wronged woman exacting revenge.
Group shaming of mistresses in China is not uncommon, but netizens have questioned why bystanders did not attempt to stop the violence unfolding outside one of the city’s popular karaoke lounges. Others, too, are wondering why there were no police on scene to stop the assault.
"I think this is a bit overboard," wrote one online user. "Even if she was a mistress, she can’t be solely to blame and shouldn’t have been treated this way. Her attackers should be punished."
So far there has been no report of police investigating the case, and neither the victim nor the attackers have been identified.
