A tenant in Nanjing, China, sparked public outrage after he threw a refrigerator from the 23rd floor of his apartment building because his landlord increased his rent. The dangerous act did not result in any injuries, but it left local residents shocked and furious.

The incident occurred on Friday, April 28 when the man engaged in a confrontation with his property agent over rental disputes and an eviction notice, Sanook reported.

To release his anger, the tenant decided to throw a heavy refrigerator out of his apartment window, causing alarm among nearby residents. Police were quick to arrest the man after receiving reports from the public. When the angry tenant was taken out of the building, a large group of locals surrounded and assaulted him, accusing him of “attempted murder.” The local police have since registered this case as a criminal matter.

The footage of the alarming event spread online, sparking heated discussions among netizens who heavily criticised the tenant’s behaviour.
