(Scroll down for video) A man was caught behaving inappropriately with his daughter on a public bus in China.
Someone on the bus recorded the man kissing his young daughter on the bus, and the video has gone viral on Weibo, where Internet users have debated whether the behavior was appropriate. Some claimed that the man was molesting the girl.
The video was taken in the Guangdong Province of Zhuhai. The video was titled “Is this the girl’s father?” The video shows a man holding the child in his arms as he kisses her on the mouth repeatedly until they got off the bus.
After the video, which lasts about three minutes, went viral, the local police issued a statement confirming that the man was indeed the father of the girl.
The 31-year-old father, who was identified as Chen, apparently learned about the video through some friends and went to the police with his wife and daughter to resolve the matter. He said that on the day the video was taken, his daughter was unhappy and he was just trying to cheer her up.
He was supported by his wife, who vouched for the good intentions of her husband, saying that he loved their daughter very much and never abused her.
