He was right to give him a slap. the guy wasn't badly beaten, it wasn't like he was beating a lady or anything. It was a mature man, giving some slaps to a much younger man, nobody was hurt, except the car. The fool damaged his car, likely because he was driving like an idiot.
Maybe next time the delivery man will take more care, but probably not.
If people got a slap every time they pulled their inconsiderate and dangerous antics on the road, they might learn some manners and maybe then less people would be killed due to the reckless and bad driving that is so common on Chinese roads.

Children hit each other until they learn some self control.
Are you saying that people in China have little self control when it comes to others in a less powerful position that they have?

Ideally people would learn how to drive better, pay attention to other road users and avoid most of the collisions that take place - but this is China, so power/status is might and is right.

The car driver has ended up looking the fool and the child even though the other man probably accidently hit is car.
First of all a car was damaged.
Then the car owner assaulted the other driver who did not hit back.

Christ. If violence was all it took to make law-abiding citizens, China would top the list as having the most law-abiding citizens. Modern Chinese culture is one of the most violent I've come across. Fact is, violence does not work and violence begets violence. Guess where the delivery man will take out his frustrations? Probably at home with his wife and children.

Just because it's become completely unacceptable for a man to hit a woman, it doesn't mean it's okay for a man to hit another man. It doesn't mean it's okay for a woman to hit another woman. It doesn't mean it's okay for children to hit each other. It's all still assault. Men are human beings too. When you slap another, there are no physical wounds, but you attack his dignity, which is one part of the soul of your country. So it's not true that no one was hurt.

Though they might not admit it, especially in a culture that cares so much about face, people naturally feel bad for hurting another, unless they are attacked, then who gives. Let his own remorse change his ways so that he will be more careful in the future.

A damaged car can be fixed with money that can be newly earned. It is just a thing with no feelings. Make the delivery man pay if you must. When you attack another person's dignity, the damage is far greater and can't be seen with your physical eyes, until the entire country falls apart. And then you sit and wonder, where did that come from.

Slapping can be exciting and sexually arousing, and some guys actually like getting slapped by a girl. But that would only be in a romantic context. I'm not saying all violence is bad and you can't hit anyone at all...but when you hit another to make them feel bad about themselves, when you attack their pride and their dignity, then it's wrong. There are ways to teach people that don't involve hurting them.

'He was right to give him a slap.'

He has no right to slap anyone, even someone who accidentally bumped into his expensive car.  China is promoting the rule of law, so he should have reported the accident to the police and let them take care of the matter.  He was seen abusing and slapping the young delivery man repeatedly despite attempts by passers-by to stop him, and the latter didn't fight back or run off.
He is a disgrace to China; he obviously equates wealth with right!
Btw, most netizens opposed his bully behavior; they had done a flesh search, exposed his personal particulars on the internet, including his home address;  his cellphone and his wife's were attacked with vulgar messages etc etc.  The 'people power' is on the rampage, seeking justice for the poor man slapped and abused in public, so much so that he had to switch off his cellphone!  
He deserved every bit of what he got from  netizens.

There was no visible damage to his car; this is unacceptable rage!
