The fact that he hasn't been ostracised and has been further embraced makes me think our society is much further behind when it comes to this issue than I thought. If I didn't know any better, I'd think that beating up your girlfriend is something that is practically a good thing and a great way to get her to stick with you.
I heard people on a call-in show voicing support and trying to make excuses for him. I found this disturbing for there is no justification for him doing what he did to her, even if she did give him an STD.
