Video of a Man Slapping a Woman With a Baby in Her Lap Goes Viral

A video of a gay man slapping a woman with a baby in her lap went viral before Twitter took the video down.

The video shows a gay man first verbally abusing a woman in a chair with a baby on her lap. The man behind the video is trying to get a reaction from her. When all she says is “You’re bored,” the man holding the phone slaps the woman’s face.

As the man with the phone in his hands runs away, you can hear a bystander say, “Ron, I know you did not just hit her with her fucking baby in her hand.” Running away, he responds, “I didn’t hit the baby!”

It’s pretty disgusting to watch. Regardless of what happened off camera, no human being — gay or straight, male or female — should hit another human being. Especially if there’s a child in that person’s lap.

The user’s profile is @einnor_, and he shared the video as a way to gloat about what went down. The video was shared with the caption, “& This Is How U Handle Sneak Dissing Ass Cunts Like Baby Fuck U Forgot Who I Was.”

Despite the slap happening off-camera, watch the video with caution.

Twitter has since removed the video, but the person’s profile still remains active.

Huff Post shared the video, too, saying it sparked some conversation but not the right one.

Contributor Arkee E. writes:

Each response ― a perfect embodiment of controversy ― varied, instigating several important discussions; however, the most critical discussion never happened. That conversation should have started like this: gay men are equally as sexist and abusive as straight men, and it’s not homophobic to reveal that.

Straight men are often under fire for doing and saying things a gay man would get away with. This is a double standard that further promotes misogyny. Undoubtedly, gay men are victims of homophobia, but that does and never will count as a justification for misogyny.

We agree with Arkee’s conclusion that misogyny is alive and well in the gay community. There is also an idea that because of “equality,” it’s acceptable for men (gay or straight) to hit women.

Equality of the genders should only bring forth the idea that it’s equally unacceptable for both men and women to each other. Violence is never the answer, especially when there’s a baby involved.

Now, can only hope that there are more consequences to this person’s actions than simply having this tweet removed.

    Sorry but no. Gay men are not as abusive or violent as straight men. They CAN be. They CAN be out of control. But when it comes down to it, its very clear this “gay man” is actually psychologically disturbed. Gay men love women. Especially strong assertive ones who won’t put up with their bullshit yet likes to keep them around. Gays respect that. They do not go around harassing women. Especially if she is holding a baby. What it DOES look like to me, is something similar to what happened here in Hollywood with the video of an Armenian man having a dispute with an unlicensed Mexican food cart vender, when the vendor threw red pepper in the guys face and he pushed the cart over. Now the video is edited and everyone thinks a random man decided to harass and push the cart of a poor helpless latin guy. Don’t go GROUPING the rest of us civil, put together and highly intelligent GAYS with psychos like this. What you call “MISOGYNY WITHIN THE GAY COMMUNITY” is in reality just the lack of patience and tolerance for women who believe they are allowed to behave any way they want and are entitled to everything. We have no use for women like that and are sure to make them feel unwelcome. Every heard of drag shows? Men dress as women who they find impeccable icons of glamour and talent and emulate their mannerisms and everyone loves it. Im very very disappointed at the tone of this article. I felt uncomfortable reading it. Theres just a video. If it was taken down why is it circulating? People don’t randomly rip other peoples videos and decide to write about it. They link the original. If it goes away there shouldn’t be anymore talk about it. Theres no police reports. Theres nothing further to indicate this was a real event other than the honor system and just believe it. It looks more like a way to try to get people who are finally coming around and supporting gays to change their views and cause panic. So take that.
