Social experiment asks young boys to slap a girl - watch what happens next!
Italian news website Fanpage.it recently hit the streets and conducted a powerful social experiment in an effort to discover how young boys would "react to the subject of violence against women".

Picking out five kids aged between seven and 11 years old, the cameraman starts off by asking them what they want to be when they grow up and the answers include everything from a baker to a policeman. 

He then introduces them to a pretty girl named Martina and asks the boys to share what they like most about her. There's her eyes... her shoes... and "just her hair, I swear!", which is by far the best answer.

After that, the kids are prompted to carress her and make a funny face at her and, although shy, they oblige and the results are adorable. That's when things take a major turn, as the man filming asks each boy to slap Martina. Hard. 

What happens next? Well, you'll just have to watch the video below and see for yourself. Here's our fave response as a hint: "Girls shouldn't be hit, not even with a flower. Or a bouquet of flowers."
