After video came out from Tim McGraw’s concert that showed him hitting a woman in the audience, his fans went absolutely crazy on Twitter. Even though his rep tried to justify the July 13 incident, fans are furious.
Tim McGraw, 47, is famous for showing us how a real bad boy can be a real good man — but this time, fans are only seeing his bad side, and they’re not happy. On July 17, a video surfaced of Tim in concert at Aaron’s Amphitheater at Lakewood, in Atlanta, Georgia — and in the video you see him swatting at a girl in the crowd.
Tim McGraw Hits Woman — Reactions
“Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn’t let go as he was moving through the crowd,” Tim’s rep revealed in a statement to TMZ.
“He instinctively swatted to try to keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing!), and so he could get to more fans who could slap hands with him before the end of the show,” his rep added.
However, people aren’t happy with that explaination. In the video, you can see that he hit the girl in the audience, while she was apparently grabbing his leg and some even say his crotch!
Needless to say, most fans don’t think Tim’s behavior was justified. Read the comments below, then let us know — was he in the wrong?

Don’t know whats more pathetic about Tim McGraw, the fact he hit a woman or the fact he has a song called “Truck Yeah” #Country

Tim McGraw should slap his songwriters.

You know, Tim McGraw didn’t need to slap a woman, but she didn’t need to touch his private parts.

We sure hope that if Tim ever has a tough time getting through the stage again, he thinks twice before swinging at a fan!
