Ana Guevara, former Olympic medalist and current Mexican Senator, was attacked by a group of men while riding her motorcycle on highway in December.

According to BBC, Guevara was riding her motorcycle on a highway near Mexico City when she was struck by a car. Then, four men got out of the car and beat Guevara as she laid injured.

When Guevara shared her story on Twitter, rather than coming together to show support for the victim of such a violent attack, a large number of Twitter users began tweeting #GolpearMujeresEsFelicidad, or #BeatingWomenIsHappiness. This is what happens when people have no empathy for humanity and hide behind Twitter avatars.

Some people decided to use her attack as a joke promoting domestic violence and assault against women.

“These women who are offended by this hashtag but use a photo with a dog filter in their profile picture are confused.”

Even other women think this kind of social media behavior is normal.

“If he doesn’t hit you, he doesn’t love you.”

A majority of people using the hashtag consider themselves to be part of Legion Holk, a group which promotes homophobia, misogyny and violence.

“Don’t do what this woman did. She forgot to make a sandwich. THINK!”

Seriously, a lot of people seem to find nothing wrong with this mentality.

“I’ll start hitting women to be happier.”

Thankfully, not everyone agrees with this hashtag.


And some have even asked what they think if their mothers were treated like this.


You know, because mothers are also women.

This man even questioned the morals of society after the hashtag started to trend.


“You have to be very sick for #BeatingWomenIsHappiness to be a trending topic and not a crime.” #PREACH

But people couldn’t help themselves, even saying they do this to their significant others.

“My girlfriend likes the blows I give her more than anything else. :(” Um…..what?!

This man even openly mocked Guevara by using her image.

“If you don’t believe me, ask her. XD”

And a few just used shocking images to show their support for violence against women.

“What are you doing outside of the kitchen?”

Others said that it is something that should be passed down to children.

“Enough, dad!! Give it to me I want to hit her too.”

Guevara also used Twitter to thank her supporters for their well wishes as she recovered after surgery related to the attack.


Guevara is recovering from her injuries and has even given a press conference to speak out against the attack, which you can watch below.


Violence is never the answer.
