In a viral video of the beating, Wong alleged that the man had abused his daughter and neglected their child.

"I didn't raise my daughter to have you beat her up," he yelled at the son-in-law in the video.

It is understood that Wong's daughter had divorced the man prior to the beating.

While many have praised Wong for defending his daughter against the man, some have accused the 48-year-old of being a gang member based on his behaviour and tattoos

"Who asked you (the son-in-law) to borrow money from the loanshark? (You) know how to borrow, but don't know how to pay back," one netizen wrote.

In response to netizens, Wong stressed that he is a tattoo model

"I'm not a gang member. The tattoos on my body are for artistic purposes, they have nothing to do with gangs," Wong told Sin Chew Daily yesterday, 30 October.

According to China Press, Wong has also joined international tattoo competitions as a member of a local tattoo group.
