This is the moment an internet cafe customer is pummeled in the face for swearing while playing a computer game before he stabs his much stronger attacker with a butcher knife.

The allegedly drunken altercation happened inside an internet cafe in Fengze District in the coastal city of Quanzhou in East China’s Fujian Province.

The customer surnamed Zhang, 31, was reportedly playing a game of snake when he lost and swore loudly inside the crowded establishment.

The gamer surnamed Huang, who was sitting in the row in front of him, heard the cursing and mistakenly thought it was directed at him.

CCTV footage from the internet cafe shows Huang, who is shirtless, walking over to Zhang and punching him in square the face. 

Incredibly, nearby gamers are completely unfazed as Huang continues to punch and slap the snake player whose friends finally turn up to break up the fight.

The security video shows Zhang following his friend Chen, 28, to the internet cafe’s kitchen, where he picks up a large butcher knife and charges back into the crowd.

The video shows plastic stools being thrown around the internet cafe, with Huang finally bolting out the door when he sees Zhang holding the sharp blade.

Zhang gives chase and, when Huang stumbles and falls, he stabs his aggressor in the midriff.

Officer Lin Longhua with the Fengze Police Station said Huang suffered a ruptured liver while Zhang went back inside the internet cafe to sleep.

He and Chen were detained on assault charges, while Huang is also expected to face punishment for provoking the fight.
