A video of a Chinese high school student beating his mom has disturbed local social media just in time for Mother’s Day.
The incident occurred inside a shop in Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province, according to Shanghaiist. The student was reportedly playing on his mobile phone while his mother sat in front of him.
Sadly, it appears that the reason for the student’s sickening behavior is alarmingly shallow. As seen in the footage, just after his mother blocked his vision for about a second, his rage level went from zero to beyond measure.
Thankfully, a man presumed to be a store employee came to the mother’s rescue.
The student simply did not want to be interrupted at that “crucial” gaming moment, a local teacher told reporters.
This, of course, is not the first time we’re seeing sons who have no mercy for their own mothers. In March, a 67-year-old woman was left with 11 broken ribs, bruises, soft tissue damage and an eardrum tear from her son who wanted to inherit her house.
Much earlier, a boy assumed to be 10 years old kicked his mother at least five times because she did not want him to play on his phone.
With the latest news, it seems games are sadly taking precedence over mothers.
