A new video posted on a poular social media site captures the shocking moment when a woman stripped her alleged love rival and beat her in the street.
Passersby gathered and stared while someone filmed the whole thing, which took place in Bozhou, east China’s Anhui province.
At least two women are shown joining the attack to punish the woman for supposedly being in an adulterous relationship with the first woman's husband.
They are part of a group of friends who cheer the assault on and take photographs as part of a public humiliation.
Their victim starts to cry as she lies on the ground with her clothes ripped.
One of the women hurls her T-shirt away leaving her hunched on the ground.
Many said it was sickening to victimize the woman in this way, saying things like ‘You should hit your man’ and ‘Why is the woman to blame. Surely the man has problems and is to blame.’
