After reaching out to greet a child, the pope turned away from the crowd only for a nearby woman to seize his hand and pull her towards him. The abrupt gesture appeared to cause him pain and Francis slapped swiftly slapped at her hand before pulling his hand free

        @Charles Hardaway BS

    2. Parth Vatsa

      I would still support the Pope even if he had punched her in face... don't assault an overworked old man,lady

    3. Travis Cadiente

      Davie504: thank you for teaching me how to slap

    4. Milo Cabral

      That face of regret the dumb salope wears after grabbing the poor guy is crazy satisfying

    5. Milo Cabral

      You can’t blame the guy she grabbed the poor man

    6. Tekknorg

      2020 and nothing changed: They love to touch little children, but refuse to touch women.

    7. Xbone187Ps4!

      Take him down for the pedophile religion he represents

    9. Ruby Gloom

      He looks for kids, what a surprise!

      1. Ruby Gloom

        I am talking about all those cases of sexual abuse to children that all those popes or religious have made.

      2. dcoog anml

        If a man grabbed a woman's hand like that and she slapped him she would have became the face of pseudo feminism.

        Did you read my comment???

      2. zuygj bnsv

        He’s old, what did you expect? For him to be a standing tower? The Pope acted on how his reflexes signaled.

    13. Piter Piter

    19. TAOTAO HOU

      Pope showed zero elegancy and competency as a religious leader.

      1. annag cocl

        Women need to be held accountable, what she did what not okay at all. At the same time, knowing how the Pope is, he was just caught off guard and clearly did not mean to

    20. maryam mure

      Look but don't touch. How dare she do that. She could have hurt him badly. He's old. Poor man. She deserves a slap on the wrist. That was dangerous and disrespectful.

    21. REVO

    33. Anna H

      Pope St. John Paul II never lost his temper like that... He got nearly knocked down many times by the crowd and he always remained calm and collected. Well, no wonder he's a saint...

    34. Joe Mysic

      this was... cute? lmao i cant stop laughing at the way she dragged him and his reprimending facial features 😂😂😂😂

    35. Skye Moon

      Women need to be held accountable, what she did what not okay at all. At the same time, knowing how the Pope is, he was just caught off guard and clearly did not mean to react that way.

    37. Francis Portillo

      Many people bashing the woman without knowing why she do that? Maybe she really needed prayers.

    38. vhinny

      Chinese Chinese tsk tsk tsk!!!

    39. Roland Palin

      Screw that Jesuit pos

    40. vliduu zeeb

    43. Boats

      Notice when they hand him a young child his eyes light up, just saying.

    44. animal Tomato

      I think the Pope doesn't like being pulled

      1. zuygj bnsv

        He owes no apology! The woman grabbed his hand, tugged him hard towards her, and wouldn't let go. He needed to drop kick her.

    45. yusuke urameshi

      It's cuz she's asian racist pope

      1. zuygj bnsv

        ERRADO NÃO TA. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    46. FckGoogle GoogleFck

      He better get used to that cultural behavior/demeanor -- they will tear him to shreds, eh?

    47. 420 Marley

      Nothing new here, the pope just touching kids as usual

      1. bodoy euir

        Asian woman even American born take a lesson dont just grab people. Your whole female culture is so grabby

    48. Bolshoi Booze

      *"Hippity hoppity, your hand is my property."* yikes.

      1. bodoy euir

        She is going to hell not his fault cuz he was being harassed

    49. Kamel Labiad

      This is the pope who promote peace and tolerance but he could not tolerate a Passionate overreacting fan 😂

      1. - Tomahawk -

        So what is he supposed to let people grab him and do as they please? Wake up ya Gronk.

    50. ClOwN HonK hOnK

      Lmao why is he the pope if he can't confront things like this? I agree that what the women did was bad but after all the pope shouldn't have reacted like this and i know that people will say "he is just and old man" well yeah but he a public figure and public figures have to deal with this maturely (and most bc of his age)

    54. Pierre Chang

      Turn the other cheek, you fool!.... the pope should read matthew 5:39.... what a disgrace!

    55. IrishPotato86

      He should be arrested for assault. You can't just hit someone because they want to hold your hand. Did anyone else see the hateful look on his face?! He hates asian people!
