Where's this d-bag's mugshot? C'mon, step your game up TMZ! This Punk-Ass Douchbag Royale needs to be fully exposed for the hypocrite that he is. You DO NOT TOUCH a woman, you PUNK (and I mean that in the literal, prison-term way). Even if the woman in question is a huge ****, you walk away and count your blessings for being done with her, but never touch, you PUNK-ASS BITCH. I will knock you into a ****ing coma if you are ever unfortunate enough to cross my path. Roger Ebert is a prophet.
