A VIDEO circulating on social media showing what appears to be a stunt class, in which a woman gets hit by a stick, has caused some outrage online.

The viral video, which was shared on Monday, September 12 and has been retweeted nearly 20k times, shows a woman running full pelt as a man swings and ‘hits’ her with a stick.

The video shared by @overtime has amassed thousands of comments on Twitter, with people suggesting that the man should be arrested for hitting a woman, while others pointed out this is how people train to be a stuntman.

The footage shows the man with a wooden stick winding up a huge swing as the woman dressed in black and purple with a bungee cord tied around her waist sprints towards him.

As she gets closer, the man swings the bat and it appears to catch the woman in the face as she attempts to block it.

Afterwards, she lies motionless on the ground as onlookers in the stunt class nod their heads in approval.

“I have so many questions 😭 (via andreamanjarres3/TT)” the caption read.

“And for our next training day we have a little drill called “get knocked the F*%# out with a stick” 🤘” one person said.

Another person wrote: “This is an insane stunt. The fact that it looks so believable is exactly the point.”

 

One person commented: “You call hitting women stunt? I’m shaking right now. I don’t even care what it is.”

“Shouldn’t this dude be arrested for that?” another person said.

Another person wrote: “It’s how they train for movies. Stunt men and women go through this day by day to make sure the scenes are on point before they start filming. The wire will snap back and put her on her back before the stick hits her face.”

“There’s nothing funny about this…call the cops…” said another person.

While another said: “Totally stunt class. She puts her hands up at the end. Also the girl in the grey and black gives the old head nod, like “yup that was the one.”

Another person wrote: “dc with any non-batfam character when they start to gain any development:”

The viral video of the woman getting ‘hit’ with a stick comes after another video shared on Twitter garnered hundreds of comments.

The video showing a bridge collapsing in DR Congo during the inauguration ceremony went viral on September 5.

Footage shows the moment a bridge, which was being commissioned in DR Congo by local officials, collapses with local dignitaries on it.
