A clip of a South African man getting a thorough beat down from a group of vicious and angry local petrol attendants has been shared on the Twitter app by a user with the handle, @CertfdCaprivian.
In the clip, the man in question seems to be engaged in a heated argument with one of the attendants. He then raises his hand in an attempt to hit the attendant and then tries to leave the store, but not before getting blocked by another attendant. Before long a gang of petrol attendants are beating the man up inside the store.
"ENGEN employees will beat you," @CertfdCaprivian captioned the clip.
Meanwhile, locals have had this to say about the clip:
"This is how to discipline blacks but whites are not allowed to do this if a black guy behave like this, we call them racists, that Mzansi for you."
"Me, when the sanitiser changed from being protection to a weapon."
"Arrest these people for assault @SAPoliceService."
"It's how he approaches so casually with his hands in his pockets as if he's not about to start an operation, fix yourself young man."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that a video showing petrol attendants at an Engen garage beating up an unknown man with sticks has resurfaced on social media. According to the person who posted the video, the man being beaten up allegedly used the k-word.
However, the incident occurred in January 2017 in Namibia after the man allegedly refused to pay for services before assaulting an attendant at the petrol station.
South African tweeps have had differing responses to the video. While some thought it was time to share jokes, others believed that the severity of the usage of the k-word and the assault should be taken more seriously.
