A young man was given the beating of his life in public after stepping out with what his attackers considered as a gender inappropriate outfit.

The young man who identified himself as a crossdresser was spotted in a pink dress and heavily made-up face as well as a hip pad for added curves.

Unbeknownst to him, a few men had laid ambush and as he crossed the ‘border’, the mob descended on him.

The video making rounds on social media captures the moment when a group of individuals mishandled the man, stripping him naked in the process.

He was later drenched in water before being spared to proceed to his destination.
