SINGAPORE - A viral video showing an office worker being repeatedly slapped by an older colleague has been taken down from YouTube, where it was first uploaded on Friday.
The video, which was supposedly filmed by an intern at a local firm, has outraged many netizens.
In the video, an older man can be seen hitting an employee on the head. A colleague persuades him to calm down but he continues with three repeated slaps on the younger man's face.
The victim remains quiet throughout the abuse.
Some netizens who are more sceptical have pointed out that it is unlikely for a person to remain quiet while being attacked.
Nonetheless, many are taken aback by how hard the slaps appear to be.
The mysterious uploader, only known by his user name Shane M, said in his original post that he had filmed the scene as the abuse happened frequently.
He said in a description put up with the original post: "I had just started an internship and noticed my supervisor constantly bullying my co-worker in the workplace.
"The abuse were (sic) often physical. I confronted him about his behavior, but I felt his explanation was insincere. I fear that his appalling behavior would continue should I not be around to witness it."
