SINGAPORE – A middle-aged man and a young woman were caught on tape exchanging heated words with each other before coming to physical blows by the roadside.
In a video posted on Twitter, it started off with the woman pointing the middle finger to the taxi driver while arguing with him.
As the car began to move away, she kicked the side door with her right foot, causing the driver to stop the vehicle and alight from it before landing a slap on the woman.
Following the slap, the two continued to argue at the top of their lungs when the woman suddenly tried to kick the man in the balls.
However, that proved to be a huge mistake as the man angrily smacked her hat off her head and gave another resounding slap across her face.
Unfazed by the slap, the woman rushed over the car and kicked the side mirror, prompting the man to charge towards her but stopped when he saw her fall backwards onto the ground.
Amazingly, the woman got back to her feet and proceeded to kick the side mirror again, which drove the man into a mad rage.
Unable to keep his cool any longer, the man grabbed the woman’s left arm and flung her to the ground like a ragdoll before stomping back to his car and driving off.
According to Sin Chew Daily, the fight occurred near the Sultan Plaza along Beach Road at 9am on Wednesday (July 6).
However, it remains unclear what caused the altercation between the two.

The clip has since garnered 95.5k views and more than 1.8k likes so far, with netizens debating over who was at fault for the fight.
Some were offended that the video was captioned as “Good job, Uncle! Nicely done!” and said that the assault of women shouldn’t be celebrated.
They also argued that the man shouldn’t have reacted so violently towards the woman for kicking his car.
“Fine, she didn’t need to kick (the car) at first. But that didn’t put a dent in his car and he didn’t lose anything either. But when he came down and lifted his hand (towards her), I support the lady’s action of kicking his car.”
On the other hand, some felt that the woman was at fault for instigating the fight by kicking the car.
One netizen opined that both were wrong for damage of personal property and physical assault.
