Shop owner travels 530 miles to punch woman who left bad review

Shop owner travels 530 miles to punch woman who left bad review

Xiao Li was beaten in the street for her review

Have you ever been so angry by a bad review that you’ve travelled over 500 miles just to confront them?

I didn’t think so, but that’s what was revealed to have happened when CCTV caught an online clothes vendor beating up a woman on the street.

According to reports by local media, the young woman had complained about a delay to her purchase, which angered the man enough to travel to ‘teach her a lesson’.

That’s when CCTV caught Xiao Li being beaten by the man known as Zhang in the streets as he slapped and kicked her to the ground. Watch below:

You can see the moment angry Zhang rushed up to Li as she was waiting in the city of Zhengzhou, in eastern China (Henan Province).

The woman had waited for her package of clothing which was four days late and did what most people would in that situation- she complained on the online marketplace, Taobao.

But the vendor in question retaliated by threatening to kill her, livid that she had lowered his rating online.

The publication reports that she believed that once she received the clothing, the matter would resolve itself, but Zhang had other ideas.

In the footage, as Li looks at her phone, the angry vendor viciously kicks and slaps her, causing her to fall to the ground before stomping away and out of sight.

Li’s injuries caused her to be taken to hospital where she was treated for a concussion and other health concerns.

However, even in the hospital she was unable to get away from the man who promptly sent her a message.

He revealed to her that he had travelled all night from Suzhou, which is more than 500 miles away so he could ‘teach her a lesson’ for her bad review.

He also told her that he could attack her again.

According to the publication, police declined to comment but confirmed they were investigating the case. It’s also unclear whether she ever got her clothes.

This isn’t the only instance of vendor attacks in revenge for bad online reviews.

Last September, a husband was nearly beaten to death in his home in Changsha after his wife lift a bag review for a restaurant.

The restaurant owner went on to tell police that he was worried that the one bad review would hurt his business’s fine reputation.

Then, the following month, a delivery man beat a woman to a bloody pulp on the street in Hainan because he was worried that she would write a bad review about him after he failed to deliver her food on time.

I mean? What on Earth is going on?

Just deliver on time, Jesus Christ.
