There's no such thing as a perfect child...

Many are truly lost on what to think.But, of course, there were no shortage of opinions!
Some thought it was way too far.
@makingmyown_ That is far too much. Way way too much. Kids are learning and growing still. They’re not full adults… https://t.co/sKkOFGg2Gz— Grateful Heathen 🍂🦃 (@Grateful Heathen 🍂🦃)1595887331.0
Some had a visceral reaction.
@InkedRanjei This is gross and anyone condoning it is disgusting as well. If you have to hit your kids to make them… https://t.co/ABIA44FgEu— Zach Hayes (@Zach Hayes)1595882991.0
While others held a different opinion."I discipline my children with a occasional spank now n then. That's how I was raised, my parents, grandparents, so on, and so on. I turned out fine and respectful to everyone. BUT, a spanking that bad with hand in public? I'd never do that."
Others felt a little more strongly.
@InkedRanjei All the people that are saying this is abuse probably disrespected their parents and lack discipline.… https://t.co/NJjzNlqBjF— Kendra (@Kendra)1595897028.0
Some believed it made them who they are today.
@makingmyown_ Got my ass whooped as a kid... plus those whoopings in public not only embarrass you, it gets your act together 👀— Jamel Herring (@Jamel Herring)1595896673.0
Jay Albert even spoke out.
@makingmyown_ That’s what my parents did to me and I made two Olympic teams and finals. 🤷🏽♂️— J. Carter (@J. Carter)1595896874.0
The video makes for pretty stark viewing.
via: TwitterThe rough way he handles the kid isn't nice to watch.
The spanking is repeated several times.
via: TwitterWhich is another factor that made viewers wince.
He also yells at the boy.
via: TwitterAnd his choice of language is less than SFW.
Watch the video yourself to judge.
