Man (Benito Apolinar) Assaults Wife for Not “Liking” His Facebook Status Update
A 36-year-old Texas man has pleaded not
guilty to battery charges after allegedly
attacking his estranged wife for failing to
“Like” a status update he posted to
Benito Apolinar had posted an update to his
Facebook page about the anniversary of his
mother’s death. Angry that the post had
elicited no response from his wife of 15
years, he confronted her after dropping off
their children at her home in Carlsbad, New
Mexico, on Tuesday.
“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. He was reportedly
under the influence of alcohol at the time.
Apolinar was arrested the same evening of
the incident. He is scheduled to appear in
court on Dec. 22.
