The video went viral on Weibo, with the brutal nature of the attack causing an outcry among social media users. Some netizens have questioned the authorities’ commitment to protecting women from such attacks.

Many remembered the brutal attack on a group of women at a barbecue restaurant in the same city in June. The attack on the restaurant, which was caught on video, has angered Chinese social media users, who believe authorities are not doing enough to protect women and ensure public safety.

The video of the murder is the latest to spark outrage in the country over gender-based violence. In July, a video of a man ambushing his ex-wife and daughter in their Laiyang home went viral. Earlier this week, a video of a man dragging a woman into a bar bathroom shocked citizens.
