A video of the man crying in a bedroom and wiping away his tears has gone viral on social media owing to the heartbreaking but hilarious circumstances. It was initially shared on China's social media platform Weibo by Chinese media Qilu Evening News.
According to the video, the son's score came as a shock to the man as he had personally taught him, reported Mothership. Disappointed, the father seems to be saying on camera “I don’t care anymore, my efforts are wasted, let him struggle by himself!” Meanwhile, his wife is heard laughing in the background.

According to reports, the man is a resident of Zhengzhou city of China and used to stay up till midnight with his son solving math problems together. But it was later revealed that the child scored better marks, ranging from 40 to 50 out of 100 before his father stepped in to help him, reported Taiwanese media ET Today.
