- A video of a woman viciously attacking a man has gone viral on Vietnamese social media
- Many netizens refused to sympathize with the abused man and just laugh at him
- Some commenters, however, slammed the netizens for mocking the poor husband and said they would have acted differently if it was the other way around
Is this a case of double standard?
A man who was viciously beaten by his own wife has lamented how netizens ridiculed him further on social media with rude and inconsiderate comments.
A video uploaded on Facebook by Phan Lan showed a man being brutally punched and kicked by a woman during an argument over a still unknown reason.
The man, who is believed to be the husband, tried to reason out, to no avail, as the woman continued with her abuse.
Luckily the husband did not hit back, as the fight could end up differently.
The unlucky husband later posted a photo of him showing bruises on his face.
According to his caption (in Vietnamese), The Coverage said, the couple had been married for three years and has one child.
During the early years of their marriage, the woman supposedly was sweet and kind. However, she changed drastically over the years as she started beating him up over small things.
But what irked the man was how netizens further ridiculed him on Vietnamese social media when the video went viral. Many netizens refused to sympathize with the abused husband and just laughed at him.
However, some commenters said nobody knows what triggered the wife to hurt her husband so badly, and could be a serious family issue.
Other said it is never okay to be abused, and no one should laugh at an abused person, regardless of the reason behind it; while many scolded other commenters for mocking the man and said they would have acted differently if it was the other way around – a man beating a woman.
