After being cheated on by her husband, a pregnant Vietnamese woman exacted revenge to his mistress by stuffing her vagina with a bag of red hot chili peppers.
The wife, identified as Ly Chanel, decided to take matters into her own hands after growing suspicious of 24-year-old Chien Keo, her husband of seven months.
Keo would reportedly disappear for hours, prompting the 23-year-old expectant mom to investigate, according to Daily Mail.
Trailing Chien on one of his disappearing acts, Chanel and her four friends ended up outside of a motel in Thai Nguyen Province, northeast Vietnam on Tuesday.
When the group crashed into the room, they caught Chien with his lover.
Chanel and her friends, who were carrying a large bag containing red bird’s eye chilies, then proceeded with their plan of punishing the mistress.
Three of the women pinned her down on the bed while one woman took photos of everything that went down. The wife, donning latex gloves, led the group in removing the mistress’ underwear.
Soon after, they began shoving the chilies inside woman’s privates. Images of the cruel punishment were posted online, earning massive backlash from netizens. Online users condemned the group for punishing the woman instead of targeting the philandering husband.
The wife posted this message on social media:
“Would my husband like me to live happily to welcome his child?
How can he care for us if he then he cheats with another girl? A woman who destroys the family.
Women can forgive easily but they can never forget. Jealousy is painful. She will know this.
There are people who hate me now, but life is like that, you cannot please everyone.
Whoever does what he or she does is their business. But let’s share something that should be shared to see the truth, and do not talk bad about people.”
While the police have stated that they have yet to receive a complaint from the alleged victim, prosecutors have pointed out that the police themselves can charge Chanel for assault and hold her liable for a fine.
District attorney’s office lawyer Giang Hong Thanh said:
“First of all, it is necessary to share and sympathize with the wife’s psychological state of affairs in this case if it is indeed the case that a woman who has been rubbed has damaged her family’s well-being.
However, rubbing chili in another person’s sensitive area and posting the clip on the internet is a sign of humiliating others.
If chili smears cause injury to another woman’s genitalia the wife may be dealt with under Article 104 of the Penal Code may be subject to administrative sanctions and a fine of from $140 to $200.”
