Violence knows no gender, age, or reason, and some of these allegations are going to shock you. From a celebrity who allegedly dragged his partner with a car to an actor who beat someone's face in so badly she needed to be hospitalized.
While it is important to show that any type of violence is never to be tolerated, it’s hard to clearly send that message when it seems that the public is constantly forgiving celebrity perpetrators of domestic assault, believing that their “art” outweighs their personal choices.
