Pope Francis has apologized for hitting the hand of a well-wisher who grabbed his hand and yanked him toward her. He apologized for the ’bad example’ he had given after losing his patience.
He slapped her hand after she started yanking on him. This is a perfectly reasonable response.
I don't like this Pope but in all fairness the woman did grab and pull him.
Not a fan of Pope Francis but after watching the video I think what he did was a reasonable and restrained response to a woman grabbing his arm and pulling him towards her.
He barely smacks her hand, and with zero force. Why is this a story?
