Viewers are expressing mixed reactions to a controversial video that has emerged of a mother publically punishing her daughter for stealing from her.
The video, uploaded on Nov. 17, shows the mother and her daughter involved in a physical altercation. The daughter had apparently stolen money from her mother.
In the beginning of the video, the mother and daughter can be seen tussling over what appears to be a purse.
The daughter, however, can be heard defying her mother and even calling her a “b*tch.”
Observers in the video repeatedly ask the girl to “watch her mouth.”
The situation only escalated from there.
After the daughter gets up off the ground, her mother throws her onto the hood of a car, where she continues the beating. Just before the video cuts off, she can be seen hitting her daughter in the head with an umbrella.
The video has been viewed more than 700,000 times and accumulated more than 6,000 comments.
“This girl has apparently grown up to be EXACTLY what her mother raised her to be,” one viewer wrote. “You can tell just from watching how this went down.”
“I don’t know what’s worse the fact her daughter would steal from her…Or the fact the mother is too immature to handle the situation correctly,” another viewer wrote.
