Social media users were enraged after a video went viral, which showed a teenager beating a gogo with a stick.
The footage was shared on Twitter on Thursday and it left Mzansi begging for the good old days where kids respected their elders.
According to TimesLIVE, a 19-year-old girl beat a gogo, 69, while someone, who clearly found it funny, filmed it.
South African celeb, Criselda Dudumashe, posted the video, which allegedly took place in Ezibayeni, KwaZulu-Natal, on her Twitter page.
Briefly.co.za learned since the video started circulating on social media, the teenager had been arrested.
KZN provincial police spokesperson lieutenant colonel Thulani Zwane confirmed the girl's arrest, adding she was set to appear in court on Thursday.
However, she was released on free bail until her next court appearance on 11 September.
Although she evaded the law for now, the young girl still had to face the fury of social media users, who took to Twitter to share their views on her unacceptable behaviour.
Masilo, who goes by the Twitter handle @thaberic, commented: "No no no no no this is so wrong my God this is heart breaking I can’t stand such a young kid assaulting an old powerless old woman jerrrrrr this kids deserve to be punished."
Sibongile Hugo, @hugo_sibongile, added: "I'm broken by this video. Some people never realised how blessed they are to have mothers. She gonna regret every single moment when her mother is gone. She so proud of beating her own mother... it's hurting... She deserve everything that's comes her way."
