A man who poured beer over a woman who turned out to be a professional boxer, has just been fired from his job at a top Bangkok hotel. Not a good week for the unnamed perpetrator, who hit the headlines thanks to the power of social media and a video that went viral. The incident occurred at a food court in the Huai Kwang district of the capital when the hotel worker, who was off-duty at the time, approached 24 year old Pareploy Saeaia and tried to clink glasses with her. The woman refused and the man moved off, only to return a few minutes later and pour beer over her head.

The outraged woman, who had been eating with friends, followed him out into the street, where she proceeded to aim kicks and punches at him. Pareploy is a professional Muay Thai fighter who has won 40 out of 50 fights and has been winning medals at a national level since 2013. According to media reports, she now works as a Muay Thai trainer.

Following the incident, Pareploy filed a police complaint, but both parties appeared to settle their differences when they met at Huai Kwang police station, where they apologised to each other and paid fines of 1,000 baht each.

The Bangkok Post reports that the man said he was drunk and hadn’t meant to offend the woman. The report goes on to say that the man vowed to quit drinking. Unfortunately for him, the story doesn’t end there, with his employer, the Swissotel Bangkok Ratchada, having just fired him. His sacking has been confirmed in a statement from the hotel.

“The hotel does not support the employee’s inappropriate behaviour both during and outside working hours.”
