The Slap: Did That Rugrat Deserve to Be Slapped?

The Slap: Did That Rugrat Deserve to Be Slapped? By now you've seen the first episode of NBC's new miniseries The Slap, or you've heard of NBC's new miniseries The Slap and know that it's about an adult slapping a kid who isn't his, or you're just now hearing about The Slap and none of this really makes sense yet. I previewed the first two episodes, and while the series is mostly a pretentious bore, its main purpose is to make you think about sensitive topics and social issues. And as you've likely already guessed, the series' most divisive element is right there in its name.

The titular action occurs at a birthday barbecue in the first episode, when a hotheaded gent named Harry (Zachary Quinto) smacks the cheek of five-year-old Hugo, the son of another couple attending the party. Oh snap! Oh slap! And the question we'd like you to answer, dear reader, is: "Did Hugo deserve it?" Let's run down the facts:


Fact #1: Hugo is a menace to society

He may only be five years old, but upon arriving at someone else's home, Hugo began tearing up the joint like Charlie Sheen in a hotel room. Even before he began wildly swinging a wiffle ball bat after striking out, he didn't waste any time destroying a collection of vinyl jazz albums (which, let's face it, might've been good for everyone), terrorizing other kids, uprooting plants in the garden, and throwing an iPad to the ground. Plus he has that hair. The kid is indefensibly horrible and deserves to be punished... or maybe to be strapped into one of those Hannibal Lecter face masks.


Fact #2: Hugo's parents were alarmingly absent during his destructive rampages

Hugo's behavior wasn't a surprise; it's clear this wasn't the first time he'd acted like a little shit. Yet his parents, Rosie (Melissa George) and Gary (Thomas Sadoski) barely lifted a finger to stop him, when they should've been on him like Velcro. If I knew my kid was prone to acting like that and I took him to a party, you can bet your *** I'd be hovering over him at all times. Rosie and Gary are awful parents who don't have any sense of responsibility and expect the village to raise their idiot. And just to throw another hot-button issue into the mix, Rosie tends to soothe her son's outbursts with some *** (yes, he's still breastfeeding) instead of putting him in a timeout or revoking his Spongebob privileges like lots of other parents would....
