A man has been filmed slapping a woman and knocking her to the ground after she repeatedly kicked her car during an altercation in Singapore.
Video of the incident, filmed along Beach Road around 9am on Wednesday, was shared online by the Facebook group SG Road Vigilante later that same day.
The video begins with the woman arguing with the Prime Royal Vellfire Limo driver and flipping her middle finger. As the man tries to start, the woman suddenly rushes the vehicle and kicks it in the side, which infuriates the driver.
After stopping the vehicle, the driver gets out and immediately rushes towards the woman to slap her. On the way back to the car, the woman follows him and tries to kick him. The furious driver rips the woman’s hat off her head and slaps her hard in the face, which can be heard in the video.
