There is one thing scarier than the sight of an out of control riot. And that sight is your pissed-off mother coming toward you to give you a piece of her mind.
A video from the Baltimore protests of a mother physically dragging her son out of a riot has gone viral since emerging on Monday night and is being shared with the hashtag #MomoftheYear. In the video caught by local news cameras covering the situation, a mom is seen slapping the crap out of her son and lecturing him for participating in the riots.
WMAR reports that the woman was watching TV when she saw her son throwing rocks, so she immediately tracked him down. She found him wearing a ski mask and carrying a backpack, and someone recorded her repeatedly smacking him upside the head and going on a profanity-ridden rant before dragging him away from the crowd.
