WATCH: “Absolutely horrendous” Father brutally beats 14-year-old daughter on tennis court, leaves Twitter disgusted

Screenshots from the viral video

In a recently released video that has been making rounds on Twitter, a father was seen brutally beating his allegedly 14-years old daughter on a tennis court, eliciting a widespread backlash against him on multiple social media platforms. The man even dragged her by the collar, apparently angered by her for not performing well in the practice sessions. The father and daughter in the viral video are said to be from China, where the dad argues beating children is allowed in order to inspire them as a cultural norm.

The video was first posted by local activist Igor Juric on Twitter and later authorities are said to have arrested the man for his actions. Meanwhile, tennis fans on Twitter, including top coaches such as Judy Murray, have denounced the disturbing turn of events.

Matches on the lower tier of the tennis professional ecosystem, such as the ITF Futures, usually have very little to offer in terms of prize money, traveling allowance, and better accommodation for participants. And that’s precisely why the majority of the players have to manage their hotel and traveling expenses on their own.

As expected, as soon as the video was made public, it instantly went viral on multiple social media platforms. Judging by the comments, while the majority of commenters were just disgusted by the heinous act and showed major concerns regarding the child’s safety at home, a few even discussed the terrifying repercussions of child abuse.
