A video showing a woman repeatedly punching and abusing a man is going viral on internet, thus sparking debate on violence against men.
Man identified as Chris Graham, 19 was seen in the video being punched by the woman who reportedly asked him ‘six dollars’.
The man told Yahoo News that he was on his way to the Eatons Hill Hotel when he came across a young real estate agent at the local 7-Eleven.
“I don’t know how it even got to that point,” the second year electrician apprentice said.
Chris Graham gave his camera the thumbs up as the woman continued to punch him in the back of the head. “She was asking for six bucks and at some point telling us her life story she mentioned she was from Emerald, so I just said ‘classic Emerald’ and she went off the bat.”
The altercation started inside the store but quickly made its way out onto the street, where the woman could be seen screaming and punching Mr Graham.
“The fact that she was hitting me was the problem, not the fact that she was a girl… I’m well and truly happy I didn’t (retaliate) though.”
Unscathed and determined to carry on, Mr Graham proceeded to his intended destination and stayed out for another five hours.
“I didn’t think much of it at the time. It wasn’t until I showed people at work and they said ‘you should definitely share this, it’s pretty serious’.”
Two million people viewed the video within the first 24 hours of it being posted, while an entire Facebook page has been set up taking aim at the alleged real estate agent. Facebook users shared the video more than 20,000 times within the 24 hours.
