On 4 Oct 2020, a Facebook user uploaded a video of what appears to be a Singapore secondary school student abusing his own mother.

According to the caption accompanying the video, the boy had allegedly asked his mother for money too.

In the span of just 20 hours, the video garnered over 2.1 thousand shares and over 27 thousand views (at the time), and drew the attention of the student’s school…

As well as the relevant authorities.

Police & School Now Investigating Video of Son Who Hit Mum Repeatedly

According to 8Worldthe police have received a police report in regards to the matter, and are now launching an investigation into the accident.

Meanwhile, the school has also intervened.

According to reports, the school has since responded to the public’s e-mails and pleas to bring the boy to justice, and said that they have contacted the boy and his family.

The school added, “The boy is sorry for what he had done. The school is working with him, his parents and the police to help them resolve their family issues.”

TikTok Has Also Responded

The video clip was initially posted on TikTok by a now-defunct user, @rainbowcontent.

It’s unclear how the user had procured the footage.

In response to AsiaOne‘s queries, a TikTok spokesperson stated that the offending video was identified “early on”, and that it has since been taken down as it flouted the app’s community guidelines.

“The user account in question has also been removed. We have also flagged this incident to the relevant local authorities for further investigation,” the spokesperson added.

Sequence Of Events

In the three-minute video, a teen could be seen hitting a woman, who’s believed to be his mother, on the head.

Apparently, she was unable to give him more money as she “didn’t have more” and was “powerless”, a notion that evidently irked him.

He went on to slap her multiple times, and even swore at her as she sat on the floor assembling some white storage containers.

“I’m doing things for you,” the woman said at one point. “You must still appreciate.”

In response, he continued to assault her and warned her not to “talk back”.

“I tell you how many times already,” he said, while pointing a finger at her face.

The video then ended after the woman asked the boy: “Then how you treat Mummy?”

Though the video has since been removed from TikTok, it was subsequently reuploaded on other social media platforms, one of which was Facebook.

For the record, the most commented phrase was the Chinese term “不孝子”, which means “unfilial son”.
