A new video has become viral across different social media platforms. The recording shows parents beating up their son, who was playing video games at a gaming center. Reportedly, the young man had spent the family’s savings purchasing video games and doing gaming activities.
One of the people at the scene decided to take their phone and film the situation. There are no details on the story and the son nor the parents have been officially identified. However, it is clear that the adults were infuriated and punished the young man publically.
The video shows the way in which the young man attempted to put up resistance. After this, both parents decided to punch him and tried to remove him from the site. Then, he can be heard yelling due to the pain that the punches and slaps were causing him.
The rest of the people in the scene can be spotted being visibly uncomfortable, and completely aware of the situation surrounding them. No one in the video stood up to help, nobody called the police or attempted to intervene so the situation did not go any further.
After the video became viral, a strong debate has been generated all over social media, especially Twitter. On one hand, there are users who claim there is a reason for the parents to be so mad at him and punch him. On the other hand, other users think that whatever he did does not justify him being beaten up.
The source that got the most views currently is a Spanish-speaking account. Here it is:
