The shocking video shows the Chinese man landing blow on the woman with his fist and dragging her by the hair only to continue the brutally assault next to a nearby vehicle. After dragging the mistress to a corner, he then proceeded to deliver a barrage of violent kicks to the woman’s face.
As shocking as the incident is, it seems that humiliating public beatdowns aren’t so uncommon in China. According to Express
, a separate but similar incident happened in China, this time involving the wife of the cheating husband.
In a graphic video, the wife proceeds to physically assault her husband’s mistress by grabbing her by the hair and kicking her face. Much like the above incident, bystanders also gathered around the scene to watch instead of offering any form of help.
Exacting revenge on cheating spouses can get even more creative and sadistic in other parts of Asia. In Thailand, a scorned wife unleashed devastating martial arts attacks
on a mistress, while an angry wife in Vietnam showed her husband’s illegitimate partner who’s boss by shoving chili peppers
down the mistress’ private parts.
