At the end of the traditional New Year Mass, Pope Francis showed a side of his personality many people did not know.
Angrily, Pope Francis slapped a woman’s arm when she grabbed his hand and yanked him toward her.
This incident occurred on Tuesday evening during a walkabout in St. Peters Square.
In the video, you can see the pontiff happily greeting the pilgrims and when he was about to turn a woman who seems to be anxious grabbed him for his arm taking him towards her.
This episode made the Pope to go angry, so he started to hit the woman with Asian features in her arm repeatedly and told her to let go of him.
It is still unknown the identity of the woman and what she said while grabbing the Pope, but what every body can tell is that she looks desperate.
Pope apologizes for ‘bad example’
Pope Francis apologised Wednesday for his attitude affirming it was a bad example.
“We lose patience many times,” Francis confessed.
“It happens to me too. I apologise for the bad example given yesterday,” Pope said before celebrating Mass at the Vatican.
