A video showing a Beijing subway employee insulting a passenger have gone viral. Her words "you smelly Beijing-outsider" has enraged some Chinese internet users and started a discussion on prejudice against non-locals.
Later however, more evidence surfaced which showed that the passenger violated the subway regulations and insulted the employee first.
Who's at fault?

Again, neither end up looking very good.
It is not very professional for a subway worker to use derogatory language towards a passenger regardless of what they did.
It makes her seem poorly trained in dealing with common situations.

just like Shanghai and Shenzhen, there are a lot of 'outsiders' living in this city and more important as a capital of a country, it's really a shame ..

Should have heard the words being slew at me from a middle aged(I guessing) lady and man the other day. I was at the hospital, holding my sick 7 month old baby in my arms. A man who got sick of waiting in line after minutes of being there. Pushed me from behind so that he could pass by me and then the lady follows him. I asked them, do you know how to say excuse me?(你会不会说不好意思?)Then the verbal assault began. Calling me a dog, asking my wife why she married a foreigner. Told me I need to leave China and on it went for a few minutes. The Dr. kicked them out of his office and while outside the door they were still rambling on. No manners what so ever. The man is lucky I decided not to physically release my anger on him. He would have deserved, never push or hit someone whom is holding a baby!!!
I am me and that is something you will never be, no matter how hard you try!!
