Woman Pelted with Eggs and Water, also known as Xiao Xiaoru Getting Egged, is a viral video of Chinese influencer 张曼如 (Eng: Zhang Manru), known by the internet handle 小小如 (Eng: Xiao Xiaoru), standing on a red carpet when an apparently angry mob throws eggs and buckets of water on her, destroying her set. Xiao Xiaoru then pulls out some makeup products to touch up her face, revealing that the video is an advertisement for one of her beauty products. Online, the clip has been shortened to only show Xiao getting pelted with detritus and has become a reaction clip paired with captions describing situations in which a person angers a mob of people.
