(Scroll down for video) A man is fighting for his life after he was beaten by a group of armed men because his wife posted a bad review for a restaurant online.

According to police, the woman, who was identified as Yu, invited some people to her mahjong parlor. She ordered a barbeque from an online platform.

The food was delivered, but according to Yu, it was not fresh and it did not taste good.

The next day, Yu wrote a negative review about the restaurant on the food delivery platform, which she had used.

Shortly after she vented her frustration online over the bad food, Yu received a call, asking if she was the one who posted the review.

When she confirmed that she was, the person who called did not ask her to take it down. He simply hung up the phone.

Around 8:00 p.m., seven men armed with bats arrived at the parlor and began harassing and threatening her.

When Yu’s husband heard the commotion, he confronted the strangers. They got into an argument and the men brutally beat the husband.

The men fled before the police arrived. Yu’s husband was taken to the hospital, where he was transferred to the ICU with a severe brain injury. He is said to be in critical but stable condition.

Yu also suffered injuries during the attack.

Police went to interview the owner of the barbecue restaurant, who according to police, admitted that he sent the men to speak with the couple.

He explained that the food delivery business was extremely competitive and that he needed the negative review to be removed in order for it not to hurt the reputation of the restaurant.

Police are still investigating the incident, and they are looking for the suspects.
