DareLondon set up a hidden camera experiment to see how strangers would react to seeing domestic abuse for ManKind’s #ViolenceIsViolence campaign.
A couple (portrayed by actors) in a London park get into a heated argument and things begin to get out of hand. The man begins to physically abuse his “girlfriend.”
Onlookers immediately notice and take action. One woman even walks up to the guy yelling, “What’s wrong with you?”
More women gather around, and even threaten to call the police.
Then the situation changes. The actors recreate the same scenario, except this time the woman is abusing the man.
This time, bystanders react a little differently…
No one even attempts to help the guy, and seems more entertained than anything.
As the dispute carries on, the video reveals a rather surprising statistic:
