I see a little girl beating on a big man!! some might say why is he taking it but on the other hand if he was to hit her back am sure it would have been a lot painful than what she was giving him and he might have ended up in prison. She is only hitting him because she knows he wont hit her back!! He was wise enough to not beat the **** out of her. People take disadvantage of who they can take it with. If he was the type of guy who would just knock her the **** out, she would't hit him! It's woman like this who make man eventually kill them. sad to say.

Not all of what this girl did to this guy was ever taped so why blame the show? I think the show is crap to but she did this to him without the cameras so stop making excuses for her. I have watched it a few times and she is a little bi**h period. Her parents feed into it. I have seen a couple news stories about stuff she did when cameras werent there. She is a typical abuser, she got away with it once and did it more and more each time because nothing happened to her. She freaking hit the guy in front of her dad and he encouraged it. What does that tell you? Sad thing is if he even once hit her back she would call cops and they would arrest him. I hope she does time in jail even if 30 days. Whats to keep her from doing it to her little girl one day?

Oh my goodness, someone needs a time out.

She fist punched him, he is a better man than I. I think a shove back, was in order, but good for him to keep his cool.

Just imagine where and how she was rasied if this is acceptable.
I actually feel sorry for her, hopefully this is more set up, than not.

She deserves jail time, not probation. If a man did that to a woman, he'd rot in jail for awhile. Look at what happened to Chris Brown and the outrage over that. He was young and dumb too...that is no excuse and neither is her being female. Domestic Violence deserves stiff penalties regardless of your gender.

It's ironic that people are commenting that because he's a big guy he's a wimp for not hitting her back...but when Chris Brown did hit back he got ostracized for it. No one commended him for striking back. So big men should hit back but little men shouldn't, is that the theory you are trying to push Einsteins?
So many double standards. Just visually imagine that exact same action being done to a female. The guy would be toast who did that and in jail with a record.
