Lebanon - Teenager not happy with his mother's life choices kicked her in the head on live television. Mother and son appeared in an Arab talk show that seeks to resolve family problems.
Ahmed, 15, was reluctant to meet his mother who he hadn't seen for seven years. However, the program's ('Bil Akeed', or 'For Sure') team convinced him to do so. The mother explained that she separated from the boy's father because he was abusive and violent.
"In the court he [Ahmed's father] attacked me in front the judges and the sheikhs," she said.Ahmed got visibly angry and started defending his father. The woman then replied by saying he sounded like an 'intoxicated' and 'drunk' teenager. Ahmed reacted by jumping on the table and kicking his mother in the face.
He was quickly pulled away from his mother by the program's team.
The video clip has raised controversy on social media in Lebanon.
