There was mild drama at a wedding after the bride’s drunk father-in-law forced her to kiss him on stage in front of hundreds of people. This incident led to a violent fight between members of both family at the wedding ceremony in the city of Yancheng in eastern China’s Jiangsu province.
The wedding appeared to be going well until the blushing bride stepped onto the stage with her new father-in-law in front of hundreds of guests. She looked uncomfortable as the older man put his arm around her but worse was to come as he really gave her something to blush about.
Smartphone footage shows the man suddenly step in front of his daughter-in-law, take her in his arms and lock his lips on hers for a passionate embrace as she tries to break free. Howls of outrage can be heard from some guests while others clap and cheer.
And the violence spilled into the foyer as members of both families became involved in a mass brawl while women can be heard crying and shouting in the background.
The video immediately went viral on social media and other video-sharing platforms. It was a kind of disgrace to both families that they had to come together to release a joint plea to the public.
“We didn’t expect the incident to take such a negative turn. The two families are now in an awkward position and the newlyweds have suffered because of it too. “The father-in-law, who was given too much to drink on his son’s big day, deeply regrets his actions. We ask social media users to stop sharing the videos and let our family sort this out privately.
“We do not wish to become famous, nor do we want to become the butt of every person’s joke. Had this happened in your family, would you be sharing it like this?”
