Man hits wife for not “liking” his Facebook post
BEIJING, Oct. 11 (Xinhuanet) -- A U.S. man has pledged not guilty after allegedly attacking his estranged wife for failing to "Like" a status update he posted to Facebook.
Benito Apolinar, a 36-year-old man from Texas, had posted an update to his Facebook page about the anniversary of his mother's death.
Angry at the fact that his wife had no response to his post, Apolinar confronted her after dropping off their children at her home in Carlsbad, New Mexico last week.
Police say Apolinar was allegedly drunk at the time. The couple has been married, with children, for 15 years, but has recently separated.
"That's amazing everyone 'Likes' my status but you, you're my wife. You should be the first one to 'Like' my status," he allegedly told her before punching her in the cheek and pulling her hair.
Apolinar was arrested the same evening of the incident. He is scheduled to appear in court on December 22.
