A video widely shared on the Internet shows a transgender woman being brutally attacked in the street in Atlanta as onlookers do nothing.

The video emerged on June 2 on Vine and shows the transgender woman angrily shouting at some people outside a skateboard shop in the Little Five Points district of Atlanta. She can be seen yelling, “I’ll f*ck you up” and “I got a f*cking pussy.” A man then slams the woman into the ground and stomps on her head as bystanders watch.

“The video clip showing the confrontation turning violent has received more than 2,200 comments and 742,850 loops. Many of the comments support the attack on the victim, though others call it senseless and deplorable,” Project Q reported.

Atlanta police told WSBTV they are aware of the video, but that the person attacked has not filed a report.

A similar video emerged in May. That video showed two transgender women being attacked and stripped naked by several men on an Atlanta transit line. Two suspects have been charged with disorderly conduct in the attack.

“I’m sickened by the fact that in a matter of weeks here, another member of my community is being attacked,” said Cheryl Courtney Evans of Transgender Individuals Living Their Truth Incorporated.
