Upsetting your girlfriend is never a good idea as one man found out the hard way in front of an audience in China.

The 23-year-old felt the full wrath of his partner after being accused of cheating with another woman in their Hong Kong apartment.

He was then forced to kneel down on the street while being repeatedly slapped around the face as the girl shouted at him angrily.

‘Listen to me first before beating me!’ the man pleads, before adding: ‘I told her not to come!’

Dozens of people watched the lengthy exchange before one witness called the police who arrested the woman on suspicion of assault.

Many onlookers turned against the girl, telling the boy to get to his feet and dump his girlfriend.

‘Stand up, ditch this ugly girl, you deserve better,’ said one recorded in the five-minute clip, which has racked up thousands of hits online.

A police spokesman told South China Morning Post: ‘Police received a report at around 5.10pm on October 4 outside 38 San Ma Tau Street in Kowloon City.

‘Police who arrived at the scene arrested a female, aged 20 and surnamed Cheng, for common assault. A victim, aged 23 and surnamed Chui, was taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital for treatment.’
