Viral video of a Singaporean man punching a woman after she kicked his car tracks debate

A man was filmed punching and throwing a woman to the ground after she repeatedly kicked his car during an altercation in Singapore.

Video of the incident, filmed along Beach Road around 9am on Wednesday, was shared online by the Facebook group SG road guard later the same day.

The video begins with the woman arguing with the driver of the Prime Royal Vellfire Limo and showing him the middle finger. As the man is about to drive off, the woman suddenly throws herself onto the vehicle and kicks him in the side, infuriating the driver.

After stopping the vehicle, the driver gets out and immediately rushes to hit the woman. On the way back to the car, the woman follows him and tries to kick him. The angry driver rips the woman’s hat off and slaps her hard in the face, which can be heard in the video.

No decent woman will do such a thing. Don’t think that because you’re a woman you can bully a guy and then cry and say kena bully,” one Facebook user commented.
