Viral video: two Chinese women fighting on Vancouver SkyTrain

| December 10th, 2010

20101209-skytrain-fight-02

Recently, this viral video of two Chinese women fighting on the Vancouver SkyTrain in Canada has been circulating the Chinese Internet community.  The shouting match was in Mandarin, Cantonese and some English.  The woman sitting down was more vocal, spoke mostly in Cantonese, and the other woman standing up spoke Mandarin and English.  In the beginning of the video there was a third woman trying to make peace, and she spoke some Shanghainese to them.

The general reaction of Chinese netizes after watching was, “how embarrassing, to lose face in front of the foreigners in a foreign county, to lose face for Chinese people and China”.

    the louder one is right

    I think it speaks more on the general state of American youth. Love their sniggering sounds. Brings me back to my callow youth and how often I acted like a prig without thinking about it.

    What are they arguing about,what is the problem?

    anybody read this?

    “The general reaction of Chinese netizes after watching was, “how embarrassing, to lose face in front of the foreigners in a foreign county, to lose face for Chinese people and China”.”

    ever lose face when u see a fresh foreigner abroad acting like an idiot?
    i suppose its different if you live in a place for a while, but these ladies are from an uncivilized time…

    on the other hand if you are embarrassed of people acting like that outside your country then why is it totally acceptable in your country?

    damn FOBs just don’t know how to behave

  10. vonskippy says:

    Pretty embarrassing, except it is Canada – so who cares. What are they going to do, stop exporting Maple Syrup and Hockey Sticks to Asia?

  11. Cleo says:

    There’s much more on youtube from California and Hongkong. There’s one from San Francisco where the old Chinese woman on the bus is assaulting a younger Black woman. It’s awesome. This is American immigrants getting their ghetto on. Imagine how FURIOUS they are on the inside. They must be SEETHING.

  12. johnathan marshall says:

    More proof of 2 idiots showing their talent – which is nothing.

    this was not a fight it was an exchange of words, bad Mandarin, bad English, bad Cantonese, and two bad woman. Nothing here to see.

  13. 2B-real says:

    I hate teenage kids. although this video was entertaining and verifies Korea Guys rants. But I hate teenagers all over the world for being so Childish. Even in korea I have had kids pull out their wieners in front of anyone thinkin it was cool. Chinese kids pointing and snickering on the train. If and when my kids are in their teens we are going to have it ruff.

    *****TRUTH ABOUT THIS WOMEN ***

    TRUTH ——–>>

    Psycho bitch sitting down is from HONGKONG…… only HK people act this way, so fucking aggressive and rude thinking there owed something, almost like an alien. I’ve had several lesbian looking ” HongKongnese ” try and fight me on several occasions when I lived there in Kowloon for no apparent reason.

    I now realize that they’re are the ones representing China across the world because of their mass migration in the late 90′s. Most HK don’t even consider themselves Chinese, they think they’re better, until China became mad rich, now HKnese are sucking some balls and trying to get their mandarin on point.

    KOREAN – rich spoiled KOREAN kids w/ their curved NY, boston or detroit hats and their gay boy band kim jong ILL mentality can stop destroying DT Vancouver. I used to love it, now I despise to go on Robson St. or the westend, mostly cause you of you guys and your gay style !

    • lay low moe says:

      the sad part in Richmond is
      lots of the Chinese there doesn’t even know how to speak English
      and Chinese is the 1st language in that area

    • HH says:

      Mainlanders never give a shiet about Cantonese. We might retain some fondness of them if they don’t open their mouths.

    • wat the... says:

      h0ngkies will admit they are chinese 中国人, but not mainland chinese 大陆人

      • lay low moe says:

        that totally don’t make sense

        • wat the... says:

          its basically means, they are chinese, but not from china….
          in their passports, the nationality will always say h0nkies

          • Voice of China says:

            Yeah Hongkies are generally uglier with flatter noses and narrower eyes. See Jordan Chan for pictorial example.

            Passport says Hong Kong, China.

            • lay low moe says:

              not as bad as mainlander’s mouth fill with black teeth caused by heavy smoking along with strong odor

      • Joyce says:

        That’s because Hong Kong is not part of Mainland China. That’s not some personal opinion. That’s black and white geographical fact.

  15. Carl says:

    I don’t see what the big fuss is all about. I’ve seen huge retarded fights + rants from all ages ethnicity on public transit.

    drunk and high teens laughing and swearing
    mad white man ranting racist slurs at bus driver about mentally disabled latino who sat beside him
    and yes, old south asian woman just being plain loud.

    So? It’s the world people. Get over it.

  16. USAWhiteKid says:

    LOL! This is so funny! fight fight fight!

  17. WhatTHE says:

    “The general reaction of Chinese netizes after watching was, “how embarrassing, to lose face in front of the foreigners in a foreign county, to lose face for Chinese people and China”.”

    The times I went to China I’ve seen arguments and fights that were like this, or would put this argument to shame. It’s like saying “it’s only okay if the Chinese do it in China as that doesn’t shame us, but in a foreign country? I’m ashamed of you!”

    Plus I don’t see the big deal about this video I mean the ladies arguing happen to be Chinese… If they were both Caucasian would it be any different? What happens if they were arguing in Croatian or Spanish? I mean really, come on.

    As for the argument on the skytrain this is what happened (my friend happened to sit close to them and told me what happened):

    The boy sitting beside the old lady is disabled whether it be autism, mute, or something else. The lady in the pink jacket is the caretaker of that boy and she sat the boy down in the priority seats that are for the disabled and elderly. Pink jacket lady asked POLITELY (it’s not shown in the video as this was taken after all hell broke loose) if she could have the seat of the old lady as she would like to sit beside him at all times…. the old lady got offended and that’s when she started to go off on pink jacket lady and kept touching her stuff/jacket. Another passerby who saw this came to the defence of the pink jacket lady and that’s where the video starts off.

    • Crystal says:

      I don’t see the big deal about this video I mean the ladies arguing happen to be Chinese…

      Ladies?
      LOL

      • HH says:

        So I can take an assumption that you despise the old? Wait to see when you get older.

        • Alleycat says:

          Although in modern times the term ‘lady’ has spread to embrace all adult women, in some contexts may still be used to evoke a concept of “lady-like” standards of behaviour, thereby referring to a specific attitude that is in accordance with common decency.

    • HH says:

      I see. This part of the story makes the Canto bat look all the more retarded and uncultured.

  18. mojo jojo says:

    are you all guy nuts? what’s wrong with people fighting it’s our nature, why should we get ashemed. you think Canadians themselves don’t fight? they fight, americans fight too, chinese fight too, koreans fight too. everybody fights, so there is no need of feeling down.

  19. Nick Tao says:

    As Chinese,I can hardly get what they are shouting out of their mouth.I’ve experienced this several times before but most of the times are when I am living in the countryside.In recent years there are several types of Chinese people going abroad.1.Young ones from middle-class families goes out for further education.2.Low class poor ones goes out for living.3.New riches goes out to enjoy life in the more luxury world.I can see these two belong to the second type.They are uneducated and lack basic living standard.Even in China people can get annoyed with them.But they don’t care ’cause they don’t really get any care from others and the government.Or maybe this can reflect the lack of Chinese social security.

    • HH says:

      They don’t get to present themselves like that in those metropolises in China. Educated and grace Chineses stay away from them as far as they can. There is nothing wrong with being poor, but you gotta have some sort of manner when presenting yourself in public.

  20. Looks like a regular day on the Red Line here in Chicago – only need to throw in a “blind beggar” for some comedy relief.

  21. Cleo says:

    I’m not ashamed or feel responsible because of shared heritage AT ALL. I find it entertaining especially when they speak Cantonese. The more involved, venomous and articulate the better like Bus Uncle in Hongkong.

  22. Lin says:

    Foreign country my ass, i suspect this is in the Richmond area since old chinese people don’t wander into Greater Vancouver. And well Richmond is like a more sparse Hong Kong. That is all.

  23. WhitePride says:

    Stupid Chinese trash! Stay in China where you belong! And stop trying to steal our white women!!!!

    88!!!

    • Azn Pride says:

      “Stupid Chinese Trash”? Look who’s talking. I could call you “White Trash”, but I’m not going to. I have enough decency and respect to refrain from mindless name calling and ignorance. Not all Chinese are like this.
      And besides, look at majority of the society today. If you look at the statistics, more WHITE MEN are trying to get with our ASIAN WOMEN than our Asian men are trying to get with “your White women.”

    • lay low moe says:

      “And stop trying to steal our white women!!!!”
      that is the biggest fear for any trailer trash

    • S.K. Cheung says:

      To White Pride:
      If you’re going to salute your moronic (and very dead) hero, at least have the balls to say it. Losers worship him. Pussies worship him but have to do it in code.

  24. MonkeyMouth says:

    No, You’re a chicken…..blah blah blah…….what is so unusual / amazing about this? just some old bat mugging for the cameras. And what’s wrong with those Canadian boys getting a laugh? The only thing i think is wrong is how these rude bitches do their part to ruin Vancouver. Anyone who has been to vancouver knows what i am talking about.

  25. Huzhang says:

    Hey I live in Vancouver, it’s like 60% Chinese here. The older Chinese immigrants from Hong Kong tend not to like the newer ones from the mainland. This kinda stuff happens all the time.

    • HH says:

      Cantonese suck anyway. They are just jealous of the Mainlanders. Too bad.

      • lay low moe says:

        what is there to jealous of?
        i m actually scare of mainlander FOBs
        somehow most of them don’t understand the logic why obeying traffic law is important

      • wat the... says:

        isnt it the other way around?
        during the hostage taking incident, there were many MLs making comments
        “the h0nkies think they are rich don’t they, spent their money overseas instead of in china, serve them right”…..

  26. HH says:

    No clue whats coming out of their mouth when mingled with Cantonese.

    • lay low moe says:

      that is because it is not Cantonese
      maybe you should ask your comrades on what she was saying

  27. HH says:

    @.@ Gosh. why speak in such a high-pitched voice. Please don’t call yourself as Chinese. Look at the girl in red, she is gentle and mild. What’s up with that Canto bitch. Looks like a wrestler. Imagine all the cantoese disappeared in Vancouver, ahem, Mainlanders remain for sure…wow, Vancouver is indeed the best place for living.

    • Udareinsultderpderp says:

      “Gentle & Mild” sounds like an TV advert for Summers Eve.

      Indeed, derp derp.

  28. Cleo says:

    That’s not Hongkong Cantonese. That’s not even city Cantonese from Guangzhou. That’s hicksville alley variation possibly Toisanese from that first wave of inexplicably fortunate but hybridized backwater settlement where the dialect changes and is distinguished by the different avenues. Some people have only ten families who speak the same variant. It’s not considered a very nice accent but some variants make me laugh. Anyway, the seated lady, the aggressor isn’t very nice and her behavior speaks to a typically cramped social circle compared to your average Mainland city dweller. It’s a huge distinction. If Wayne Wang hadn’t immortalized them in his early works, we’d have no evidence of their existence. Anyway, definitely not Hongkong and barely Cantonese.

  29. Peter says:

    LOLOL – This is hysterical!

  30. S.K. Cheung says:

    I wonder what set them off. The train was nearly deserted, too bad neither of them had the wherewithal to just walk away. But some juicy Cantonese cussing being thrown down, always nice to see.

    But really, just 2 or 3 women making a bit of a scene. No big deal. Certainly can’t see how that would be embarrassing for an entire race, unless one assumes that every last member of that race behaves that way. Feel embarrassed for them, sure. But no need to find it embarrassing for Chinese people in general.

    I do find it peculiar that some people would try to further make a distinction between a Hong Konger vs a mainlander, or a Cantonese speaker vs a Mandarin speaker. Bad behaviour is bad behaviour, regardless of where you’re from and what language you speak. But to generalize the bad behaviour of one person to an entire group of people is no different than what racists do (yeah, I’m talking to you, HH)

    • Cleo says:

      I can’t agree that the differentiation is insignificant not to distance one self from the culprit but actually the seated aggressor’s accent/dialect has a reputation amongst citizens of Canton proper and Hongkong. If one were to listen to their conversations, you would note a self-limiting crab mentality devoted to in their nuances – not commerce, not thirst for knowledge or personal advancement but nuances related to keeping each other in check – it’s a wonder they ever rise above footstools outside their front doors. There’s a reason for their reputation. You just have to be present and have experience from within and full frontal to understand.

      • S.K. Cheung says:

        I admit I couldn’t fully decipher everything that was said. From what I could gather, i agree that the seated person was the “aggressor”. That said, to me, it is what she said that makes her behaviour disagreeable, and not her accent or her place of origin. She certainly deserves to be judged based on her actions. But to judge her on any other basis is prejudicial, and in that way, is not better than racism, which when boiled down is simply prejudice based on race.

  31. Andy says:

    Cantonese lady will kick her ass. She’s so funny she said to the other lady she has “雞樣”… very funny. Reminds of me of the Toisan lady on the SF Muni

  32. jeff says:

    Ashamed that they portray chinese people that way in a foreign land? those guys have to be fucking kidding me. from the comfort of their own fucking home or internet lab, these fucking teenagers and 20 somethings that are probably leeching off their parents need to open their eyes. no one else in the video was unreasonable besides the old woman that probably went through more shit than they can imagine to get to canada and live there as a foreigner. if anything she’s OLD and old people tend to be unreasonable and from a different time. its not a big deal.

  33. DumbChinese says:

    Chinese… lol… such stupid primitive people giving all Asians a bad name.. and why are there so many of them everywhere?

  34. Johnny says:

    LOL at the Korean trolls here. Yeah okay Chinese give Asians a bad name but guys like Cho Seung Hui did wonders for the Asian community right? Oh and what about KJI and his psychotic regime? Yes let’s follow the Korean example by dividing out nation up and shooting up colleges.

    • Anthony says:

      Right so shooting up a college is bad, but turning grade schools into human sushi bars are okay?

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_Chinese_school_attacks

      Seriously, chinese people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.

      As bad as KJI is, I think Mao killed a lot more people. And if your worried about Asians getting a bad name, then maybe you should turn your attention toward getting lead and Melamine out of your baby formulas.

  35. Anglo Saxon says:

    Multi culturalism will cause the downfall of the west.

    Got to love those crazy, buck-toothed chinamen.

    poor stupid and ugly asians trolls here
    neither WHITE MEN want you asian whores
    neither WHITE WOMEN want apes asians
    RETURN TO sewers( your countries) in asia

  39. John says:

    A chink, is a chink, is a chink… I don’t think it really matters what “language” you speak when you are dealing with a subhuman race, they should all just be glad they have the opportunity live here, as we all know, no one is flocking to china.

  40. Carl says:

    looks like you need to get out more and see the world, or maybe take off your prejudicial glasses when you do.

  41. Carl says:

    or maybe your whole god damned family are neo nazis, you sure sound like one. too bad your breed don’t get elected anymore.

  42. Carl says:

    actually never mind, you sound too cliché to be a neo nazi, facist sounds better.

  43. artemis says:

    Cho Seung Hui was a jackass.

  44. jeff says:

    Way to be a hypocrite. you dont feel slightly like a racist fuck for branding all people with the same manners? she an old lady and she fucking mad, whats new? and dont get started on pride, im assume you are either one of those cliquey korean that hate everyone not korean because you “think” you’re better or some loser that stays home 24/7 to play world of warcraft. and you know what koreans are better at? I’m sure they are hands down the best at beating all their fucking wives and treating them like shit. how does it feel to be stereotyped fagget.

    p.s. i know i was harsh but really i just wanted to enlighten your ignorant full of self righteousness ass.

  45. Hanui says:

    Fortunately, not all korean are as rude, opinionated and racist as you are!

  46. Mr_HK says:

    “That’s what you was saying while VOC was penetratin’ you from behind”

    That’s what you WERE saying while…NOT WAS, if you need English lessons I could always recommend VOC to you.

    And no, I heard Kimochi whilst watching Japanese AV! If anything I think VOC would prefer to penetrate you than me!

    TAP SUM BONG!!!

  47. Mr_HK says:

    I doubt that VOC is capable of expressing any interest or fascinationon the Korean donga, because I don’t think he’s managed to purchase a microscope yet…:D

    Now go TAP SUM BONGGGgggg!

  48. Mr_HK says:

    BTW, it’s not only Chinamen who drool over Japanese AV stars, because I know for sure that Korean men are just as into it, and it’s probably within the top 3 past time “amongst” other activities like Starcraft and Stem Cell research at SNU! :D

    TAP SUM MORE BONG!!!

    HK GUY 10!
    KOREAN_GUY 0!!!

  49. STFU Kimchi says:

    well you ARE only good for your anus since your penis is tiny and basically useless.

  50. lay low moe says:

    this is the reason why the world get to bang Korean girl
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czr3MtWxNfk

  51. STFU Kimchi says:

    LOL nah i’d have to say fermented cabbage has got to be the shittiest.

  52. lay low moe says:

    there are reasons why korean_guy is not drooling over AV
    the reason is out there…
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czr3MtWxNfk

  53. C. says:

    my thoughts, so i didnt watch it.

  54. STFU Kimchi says:

    “Asian men don’t want your filthy white whores either.”

    Speak for yourself.
    I’d take an average white ass over a Chinese women any day.

    Chinese are f**king up what little chance Asian men have with white women, all the while shit load of Chinese women are throwing themselves to white men.

    If you CAN even get an average white ass with ur half inch erected dick.

    If a shit load of chinese women are throwing themselves at white men, I can only imagine the huge amount of korean women throwing themselves at every other race just to avoid the wife beating korean men.

    TAP SOME PUSSY
    then maybe you’d stop bitching 24/7 about other races ;)
    (unless you like to be on the receiving end, in which case, I am not surprised at all.)

  55. STFU Kimchi says:

    and north korea is any better?

  56. STFU Kimchi says:

    Just like 99 percent of the koreans in canada

  57. STFU Kimchi says:

    Well I do agree its better than beating each other. Maybe you should remind your korean men next time when they are beating their wives.

  58. STFU Kimchi says:

    Nah, I live on the west side, there werent many koreans at my school, they’re all on the EAST side.

  59. STFU Kimchi says:

    Nah, he must have seen a korean and mistaken him for a hongkie.
    At least you CAN see their narrow eyes, its better than just having slits. ( well not in korean guys case… it must be hard seeing out of those lines of yours.)

    Flat noses are always better than flat faces ;) wouldn’t you agree korean guy?

  60. STFU Kimchi says:

    Hows kim jong-il?

  61. STFU Kimchi says:

    Don’t let kim jong-il know you escaped from north korea! or else he’ll come find you!

    p.s. everything korean sucks.

  62. STFU Kimchi says:

    will do ;)
    only if you tell all the koreans to go back to north korea and stfu :D
