    When video was released of Solange attacking Jay-Z on an elevator, many people asked if Jay-Z had a right to hit her back. Or, for that matter, would any man have the right defend himself against a violent woman?

    Whoopi Goldberg said on “The Viewlast week that a woman should expect to be hit back in the event that she hits a man unprovoked, but her position was blasted on social media.

    However, the iconic actress and comedienne isn’t backing away from her argument and recently recorded a video saying as much:

    Hey, I know everyone is freaking out like I said that they would when I said if someone hits you, you have the right to hit them back. I didn’t say Jay Z should have hit Solange,” she said. “I said if you hit a man that man has the right to hit you back. That’s what I said. I stand by that.

    If you hit anybody, they have the right to hit you back. This idea that men aren’t supposed to hit women, if you slap a man he has the right to slap you back. Now, not everyone is going to agree and I’m okay with that. But that’s how I feel. That’s why I don’t slap anybody.
