The two were featured on the "Lady Gua Gua" talk show after the mother uploaded a controversial video onto the Internet in February. She had filmed her daughter walking out of the shower naked, claiming that it was to help Gan find a suitor.
After the incident, the pair recorded videos individually, defending themselves. Gan also tearfully begged netizens not to attack her mother and that the latter only meant well.
The reason for the mother's attack on Gan was not known, but she can be heard on the video saying, "What's the meaning of this?" and "What do you think you're doing?".
At one instance, Gan was seen talking to the camera, saying, "my mother hits me because she loves me," after which her mother rushed forward shoving her and yelling vulgarities.
The video garnered over 3.1 million views in three days on Youku.
In another online video of the same show, the mother recounted that her daughter copied her parents' sexual movements when she was only one-year-old.
At that time, Gan was sleeping in the same room as her parents, and they would have sex while she was asleep.
However, one day, they noticed that Gan was humping the bed and copying their "push-up movements".
They initially thought it was funny, but Gan would not stop so they did not dare have sex in front of her again, the mother claimed.
"We thought she was stupid and wouldn't know what we were doing," said the mother.
