Madison Beer has slammed people who think that it's acceptable to verbally abuse their partners in a powerful TikTok video.
Last week (Oct 19), a TikTok went viral in which a girl can be seen doing her makeup while her boyfriend verbally abuses her. He says: "I just look at you and think 'f*cking gross'. I f*cking hate you more than I've ever hated anyone in my f*cking life." The girl captioned the post: "I am not gross. This was because I wouldn't go to church with him."
Noticing the video, Madison Beer commented in support of the girl writing: "I can only say so much in a comment but I am sending you all the strength in the world to leave this person and never look back." She also added: "I'm so sorry. He is insecure, manipulative, abusive and projecting."
However, someone replied to Madison saying there are two sides to every story and she is being praised for her response.
In the video, Madison said: "Actually no, there are not two sides to every story at all in any way, shape or form. There is quite literally no justification for speaking to your partner this way. Ever. I don't give a f*ck what you say. There is no justification. I am so sick and f*cking tired. Stop acting like there is reason for you to speak to your f*cking girlfriend like this."
Madison then explained: "If you get this angry and this uncontrollable and you can say this shit to a person that you claim to love. This is not her fault and there is no other side of this f*cking story. There is nothing he could tell me that could make me say, 'Oh no, yeah, what you said to her was fair'."
Madison added: "Anyone out there who is in a verbally abusive relationship, someone who f*cking loves you is not going to speak to you like this. They clearly have a lot of work to do on themselves and it has nothing to do with you. Sorry."
She also said: "If you hate this girl so much, and if you don't want to be with her, and you think she's disgusting, then get away from her and break up with her and never speak to her again. It's that simple to me."
Addressing the man in the original video, Madison said: "This girl's sitting here doing her f*cking makeup and you're sitting berating her and degrading her and putting her down because you're upset about something. Deal with your emotions in a different way dude like, what the hell."
She continued: "Even if you do something that's wrong, hold yourself accountable, be with someone who's able to have a conversation with you in a healthy f*cking way."
Madison's video has led to many women opening up about their own experiences in the comments. One person wrote: "Had verbally abusive ex. I always thought it was my fault but he was very very insecure. It's always a problem with themselves."
Another wrote: "My ex spoke to me similarly. You start to forget that it's not ok until you're out of it & you're like wow, it's not normal to be spoken to like that."
It should go without saying that speaking to anyone in such a degrading manner is never okay.
