This video of a girl berating her boyfriend — both verbally and physically — on the streets of Hong Kong reminds us that men can also be the victims of domestic violence. It’s never OK to hit your partner even if he did cheat or lie or invite the “ugly” girl over to his apartment or whatever his girlfriend is accusing him of. The most disturbing part though, is that it took so long for anyone to intervene and break up the argument.
According to the South China Morning Post a female passerby eventually called the police and the 20-year-old woman was arrested for common assault in a “dispute over love affairs.” The victim, age 23, was taken to the hospital for treatment.
I wonder if the roles were reversed if bystanders would have stood around twiddling their thumbs for so long.
