Things That Matter

A Woman In Mexico City Attacked Someone’s Car With A Metal Pole So Now She Is Lady Piñata And That’s Fair

There’s not much joy that we get on social media these days. It’s all devastating news from every direction. We do, however, enjoy when social media comes to bat for those who have been wronged in some way. “Twitter do your thing,” is the best way, if not the only way, to get people’s attention and call out terrible people doing horrific things. This simple call out on social media allows the world to see cruelty at its worst and hopefully make them responsible for their vile actions. That’s what’s happening in Mexico City following some horrible road rage.

A video on social media went viral in Mexico showing a woman assaulting another woman in a car with a stick.

The assaulter got out of her car and hit the victim’s windshield, her car door, and anywhere else she could reach with her stick. It clearly looked like some kind of road rage incident, but the victim who recorded the entire thing took to social media to express what happened. 

The victim is Viviana Garcia, and she expressed on Instagram that she got into a minor accident with the car in front of her, which is when the woman came out and began hitting her. The accident took place in Tlalpan Centro, in Mexico City and at first, she said, that everything seemed to be under control because police were already at the scene of the accident. 

Both parties were in the process of exchanging insurance information. In Mexico, representatives from the insurance company come to the scene of the accident and take documents of what happened themselves. 

Garcia said that her insurance representative was taking a long time to arrive. When they finally do, they informed her that they do not cover that damage. They told her she had to withdrawal $6000 (in pesos). She said once the officers left, and after her driver arrived for support since she’s a minor, a woman in the car began to record her and told her: “you’re going to remember me.” 

A video from the perspective of the assaulter’s family has also been released, and now we’re getting a clearer picture of why they were upset with her.

While they are recording Garcia, you can see the young women is scrolling on her phone on Instagram while she waits for the insurance respective. She was clearly behaving immaturely, but that is no reason to beat anyone up. Violence should be avoided at all costs. 

Garcia said their video proves they were threatening her from the very beginning. Garcia insists that the video shows she was not at fault and was simply waiting for the next step of resolving the accident. They claim, according to Garcia, that they accused her of being on the phone when the accident took place.

Garcia said that glass from the windshield hit her face and that she was also hit on her cheekbone. She ended her post by saying, “Please help me spread this, it is not possible that these kinds of things are happening in our environment, help me find them.” 

Social media did more than just investigate who this woman was. They tagged her Lady Piñata

The entire video exposes that the assaulter was in the passenger seat in the back and was riding with her sister and parents. 

“Whose fault is it?” a person on Twitter asked. “The daughter who is a crazy and hysterical or the parents who look happily at their crazy and hysterical ‘doll'”?

People were able to find out who the woman was and it’s reportedly 35-year-old Erika Vanessa López García. The car she was in is registered under her parents Heriberto Lopez Buendia and María Elena Garcia Rico.

The incident is under investigation, but we have a feeling this sordid mess is far from over. Until then we’ll always have Lady Piñata.

Garcia thanked all of her followers for their help in locating her assaulter. And just think, what could have been solved with 6000 pesos (around $300) is now going to cause this deranged family a whole lot of money. Whatever they end up paying Garcia, their shame on social media will live on forever.
