A video showing a Mandarin-speaking JPMorgan Chase employee being punched in the face by a protester outside the company’s main Hong Kong office has provoked outrage in mainland China.

 

Footage of the incident on Friday shows the banker, who was not identified, surrounded by media while protesters shout at him to “Go back to the mainland!”

 

He responds, “We are all Chinese”, and asks a man in a press vest to show his media pass. The man replies, “Why do I have to show you my press pass?”

 

As he tries to make his way into the office building, a protester punches him several times, knocking his glasses off. It is not clear from the video what sparked the altercation, and there is no indication it was connected to the investment bank.
