Tim McGraw

Talks Bitch Slap

'Nobody feels good about it'

7/21/2014 11:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tim McGraw Slapping Woman
Tim McGraw is finally speaking out about slapping a female fan in the face during a concert after she ripped his jeans ... but he's leaving out one important detail.

McGraw spoke to ET Canada ... saying, "It happened in a split second, it was pure instinctive reaction, I think you just got to move on."

The country star added, "Nobody feels good about it, but there's nothing that could be done about it."

TMZ broke the story and got the video of McGraw laying the smack down during a concert in Atlanta.

But here's what he didn't address ... McGraw shakes the woman's hand off his pants, THEN hesitates and follows up by reaching down and smacking her in the face.  

As far as the law is concerned ... cops in Atlanta side with Tim ... telling TMZ the slap was justified.

Had this been a man in the audience grabbing a female performer on stage, even if she slapped him, he would be arrested for sexual harassment.

I guess the men can say the same thing when they hit your daughters....they had a split second to think about it...

I never feel good when I have to pimp slap a bitch. Honestly she shouldn't have been trying to touch him. He's up there working for the crowd not her. Let him perform and keep your hands off the performer.

When has anyone been to a concert where the women aren't trying to reach for and grab on a male singer? Thats the whole reason why Tim is a singer and does his shows, to make people happy. Now if a fan is just trying to feel you because they idolize you, why would you slap them and have them carried away?

If he was so worried about his pants maybe he shouldn't wear such tight jeans

Looks like she kept doing it after he shakes her hand off...its not a bad thing..reactions don't have to be instant late reactions happen as well if I was trying to rip off someone's pants I might be waiting to get smacked as well esp. When you know they aren't cheap lol

Dr. Phil would not approve. He says a man should never put his hands on a woman

If you watch closely after he shoos her off, she reaches for him again. I would have slapped her, too!

If she had kept her hands to herself, it wouldn't have happened. Just shaking off her hand is not enough. She needs to learn that just because someone is on stage does NOT give her the right to grab, rip, or anything else. Hopefully the little SLAP will remind her next time she gets stupid.
