A video clip filming a teenage girl being undressed and bitterly beaten by another girl has caused much attention on Weibo.

The footage shows that the assailant first pulled off the girl’s clothes, and then kept kicking her, even her private parts despite her constant pleas and cries. She also spat on the girl’s face.

The video was taken on December 13 at Dengzhai village of Fogang County, Qingyuan city of Guangdong province.

Huang, the girl beaten in the video is an eighth-year student at the Chengbei Middle School of Fogang city. She went to the police station on December 18, accompanied by her mother.

Local police soon detained people involved in the video on the evening, and found out all were teenage girls of similar age. The attacker, surnamed Fan, had dropped out of the school. She admitted that she had gathered several teenagers to bully Huang, doubting that she had said bad things about her.

The school said Huang didn’t show difference going back to school, but they had already arranged a psychological tutor for her.

And parents of Fan, the assailant girl, were told to bring her home “for stricter education”.

The raw violence in the video upset numerous weibo bloggers. The hastag “junior high school girl stripped and bullied” has been read for over 26 million times till the moment. Many questioned the punishment for Fan was too light:

“If these behaviors are tolerated just because of her age, things like this would just spring up!” said a Weibo blogger.

“The real horrible thing is the person who took the video, who not only tried to stop the violence, but encouraged her. She even said ‘Take it easy, I won’t put it online’!” another Weibo blogger said.
