Gloria Allred -- Don't Prosecute the 'Bachelor' Chick!

1/4/2011 3:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gloria Allred just told TMZ ... she doesn't believe the woman who slapped "Bachelor" Brad Womack should be prosecuted for criminal battery.

Gloria says the slap is different from the Amber Portwood case. She says the Amber situation involved "multiple violent and physical fights in the presence of their baby daughter." Gloria calls Chantal O'Brien's slap "an isolated instance" with no significant injuries. 

But how 'bout this ... Mel Gibson is being investigated for a self-admitted isolated slap (though Oksana lost 2 veneers).

As for "The Bachelor," Gloria says, "Sex and violence are often used to sell and promote shows." Gloria calls the slap "a promotional vehicle."

This women should be pulled from the show for slapping him.The show shouldnt tolerate any bad behavior. Who does she think she is anyway. They should have taken out right when it happened.

I am appalled at Gloria Allred's hypocrisy. I am a victim advocate for a domestic violence/sexual assault agency and I am tired of the double standard of violence against men in our society. The VAWA movement was started to protect women from being treated as property and the right to be protected from their partners, be that same sex, a man, live-in, dating or married......this is wrong. This bachelorette had NO right to touch him, period, and for Gloria to say this is "entertainment" flies in the face of everything we as advocates have tried to do to protect the right of the individual to be free of violence, whether that be emotional, verbal, sexual or physical.

This woman should be held to every standard of the law that a man should be. Gloria is the champion of everything feminist, and this is just a joke. If women are equal, then they should be held to equal standards. Women are becoming the bullies---not equal. I am embarrassed to say I represent this type of behavior. Be it a man or woman, if someone is abused, they deserve equal protection, or there are NO equal rights.....

Gag me!

I've never slapped a girl or a woman. If I back-handed Gloria with a giant class ring, would she consider that an isolated incident done for promotional purposes?

If it were a woman being physically assaulted on tv or anywhere else for that matter there would be an outcry but because it was a man being hit it's okay?

I say prosecute and send a very strong message that Domestic Battery is unexceptable no matter who is doing it. I believe woman are not against DB, they just want to be the ones in control of dishing it.

Gloria,Gloria what are you doing?

1. You are not pretty, in fact you are quite ugly inside and out. How is it that you want to put that ugliness on TV? No one wants to see you or listen to your self promotional bulls hit. 2.You are a lousy lawyer who depends on the media to help your cases because you can't make it on your own. You have become the Jerry Springer show and an embarrassment to your profession. You are suppose to come across as professional and all you come across as is a media whore.
3. You contradict your self when you flip flop on who can slap who. It is suppose to be no one is aloud to hit another person but you see it as another way to get your ugly mug before the cameras.
4. Anyone that hires you, in my opinion, is guilty already. Why would they hire someone like you in the first place. They know that you will crucify their opponent in the media taking all the heat off of themselves and that the truth is smeared and lost in all the hoopla.
5. I am ashamed that you represent women of questionable character and make them out as victims when they are not.

Gloria, you need to crawl back under that rock you lousy c ock roach. You are no longer welcome on our TV or computer screens.

Can I sue her for causing me to become ill every time I see that ugly mug on TV? Isn't that emotional distress, pain and suffering?
