  1. Now, whatever woman done this to this man is VERY CRAZY and needs to go to a Psychiatric hospital because throwing hot grease was over the top. And then, she needs to do time in jail, too.

  2. Cam

    Thats Just Wrong… she Be either under protective custody or DEAD Soon As I walk Again…
    On A better Note… I’d Never Put Myself in that position again N my life.

  3. Kimberly BabyGyrl Williams

    SHOULD HAVE KEPT HIS PENIS IN HIS PANTS..I WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME THING!! IT WILL BE KNID OF HARD FOR HIM TO STICK IT NOW!!!!!

    • you need help if you agree that this guy deserves this. If a man cheats on you, move on and let go. What goes around, comes around anyway…You definitely need to see a psychiatrist if you would do this to a man…this is insane and crazy along with criminal charges need to file, too.

      • Yolonda Sumrell

        It is NEVER ok to try and control anyone. The majority of women today are suffering from low self esteem, and are trying to control men through these sorts of abusive tactics.
        Women, KNOW YOUR WORTH. KEEP YOUR BODY FOR YOUR HUSBAND! When you know the value of your body, you won’t suffer the effects of stupping to these devices to “pay someone back” for cheating on you.

      • RHS

        Amen, to that move on not worth going to jail for. Move on…

    • Derek Springer

      And I suppose if a woman is caught cheating and her husband beats the shit out of her, she deserves it… She should have kept her pussy in her pants. Oh no wait, because it’s never okay for a man to hit a woman… ‘the hell is your logic?? Don’t answer that… I’m afraid of what you’ll say.

    • Marcus

      Your psycho and you need help.

    • Natonje

      lol…yes n deeed too damn funny

  4. what the fuk, dats what u get

  5. danielle

    DAAAANNNNNNGGGG….!!!
    now, that is a sign for all men out there not to cheat. its just down right stupid and you never know what’s gonna happen when the girl finds out…exactly. so stoppp!
    hahahaahahah this is funny/crazy tho.

  6. Big Dee

    To all of you that agree with what was done to this man, remember your comments when the shoe is on the other foot and that it’s a woman has been caught, I guess it’s kool for a man to beat a woman to death. Though it’s wrong what he did, it’s not illegal, she broke the law, that opens her up for all types of lifetime punishments. She may go to jail on top of monetary damages, if there are kids involved, they may loose their mother.

    • Thank you for your comment…well spoken

    • AmandaMarie

      Uhm, the kids should be taken from their mother if there’s this kind of anger issue.

      I disagree with cheating wholly but if a man or a woman beats on their partner for doing it in my eyes they become the more insane one. I can’t even believe some of you people here think this is okay. It’s disgusting. Yeah he made a mistake, but who’s to say he didn’t learn. Now he’ll probably have to deal with physical, mental, and emotional turmoil his whole life. Yeah cheating leaves a scar, but that’s just above and beyond.

    • justin

      i HOPE they loose their mother before she does something this psyco to them

  7. Helena

    WoW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My advice to men please dont’t cheat because something bad will happen to you

  8. bell

    i would have walk away. i have grand kids to think about i cant do no time for anybody

  9. Truth1

    To all the women who left “congratulatory” comments: You act like men are the only sex that cheats. So, when (NOT IF) a woman gets caught cheating, would you be all happified if she was horribly disfigured in some way? NO, you would not. More than likely you would just say that it’t that man’s fault that she cheated in the first place and take no responsibility for your own actions. Was he wrong? Yes. Was she wrong? Yes. Ladies, if you agree with what she did, I hope you are all saints. If not, when you get caught cheating on your man, I hope the same thing happens to you that you were so ready to applaude happened to someone else…

  10. not funny

    check this out. not every man cheats think about it. it’s the women that gots to open her legs in order for a man to get in. wow. that was not nice at all. if a woman stoops that low she needs help because it’s everyone for their self. no one person owns anyone.

  11. Moronic

    Who cares who cheats…this is just flat out childish and irresponsible! The pain of infidelity does not warrant this! Its just another example that our society has forgotten how to cope with complications and interact with other people! Folks need to grow up, why waste your energy stooping to their level?!

  12. Vonnie J

    Wow….I giggled yet, felt his pain…. Umm ummm ummm cold as ice! 😦

  13. Bravo

    That’s just why brothers don’t date sistas anymore!

    • carla

      He doesn’t necessarily look like a ‘brother’ so why assume that a ‘sista’ did that?
      Perpetuating that stereotype might be why ‘sistas’ aren’t dating simple minded ‘brothers’.

    • Jaz

      @ Bravo,You dont know that for sure…..idiot….for your info! I am a so called ‘sista” and I dont fuck with brothers no more….so how you like that!! idiot!!

    • RHS

      Why make this about race, this was brainless of you to say. So you think this OK, if they was white or any other race. God Help You..because you need prayer if you think this OK, and anyone else who think this OK. Very Sad!!! Why look at color?

    • Alex

      Ok, I am hurting cause the picture, the story and these comments..ok most of them are hilarious. But I know who isn’t laughing.

  14. MARION SPRINGER

    WOMAN GET DISEASES FROM CHEATING MEN ALL THE TIME. WIFEY OR GIRLFRIEND IS NEVER ENOUGH I JUST HOPE IT WAS WORTH IT, FROM THE LOOKS OF HE WONT BE USING THAT FOR A VERY LONG TIME OR EVER AGAIN.

  15. no one deserves that i dont care what he did thats just wrong

  16. Shamieka

    Damn that is foul. I don’t care how pissed she was she shouldn’t have done that. DAMN!

  17. longfeathers2003

    things like that should not be put where small kids can see it

  18. lanceO

    Now what she did was wrong and she should go to jail and now if he fucks her up would he be wrong

  19. Don Mega

    All you little girls who agree this was a justified act raise your hands!?!?
    ok… one moment while we add you to the “crazy b$%#^ not to date” list!

    That’s pure evil and its not just a situation or an event limited to one individual. This is a growing dilemma due to the lack of understanding in this …back ass wards society.. there is no reason a man needs to feel fear to be honest and define his desires to a woman to give her a chance to make a choice to be with him and there is no reason a woman has to feel so much insecurity due to the desires of her man that she would be so bold and foolish as to do something like this! This isn’t humor or a justifiable means to an end.. it’s just wrong

  20. nichelle

    man..thats wat he qet i bet he wont cheat no more !

  21. bsecrets

    This is just sad to think that someone would harm another person like this but i can see why it happened! If a person is not operating under God’s authority they will do just about anything. No man or woman deserves abuse in any form and if u agree with what this woman did …i ask u to seek god and find out what the true meaning of love is!

  22. It’s about time for the woman to stop been the victims

    • BDR

      How do you know she was a victim? She may have been a manipulative and controlling woman. Could have been one of those women that throw a tantrum everytime they don’t get there way. Maybe he broke of the relationship and had moved on, but she didn’t want to let go. Thinking the old cliche..”If I can’t have you, no one else will.” She was wrong and should have charges pressed against her. Without the full story..it’s best we refrain from ill advised comments. If she was a victim…Love yourself enough to know when to get out and walk away.

  23. Juicyj

    OMG!! I guess he won’t be doing that anymore. He should have learned a valuable lesson from all this.

  24. BABYGURL

    FOR EVERYONE WHO AGREE’S WITH THIS ARE AS STUPID AS THE WOMEN WHO DID THIS – IM A WOMEN!!!WOMEN CHEAT JUST LIKE MEN IS IT OK FOR A MAN TO KILL A WOMEN BECAUSE OF IT – CHOOSE YOUR ACTIONS AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE THE RIGHT ONES

  25. strongwoman

    I am a happily married woman and have only been with one person ever in my life. i would never cheat on him he is my everything. I cant honestly say what i would do if i caught him cheating because it would be a very irrational moment in my life. to all of you who think the agreeers are so stupid it has nothing to do with low self worth or anything like that. it has to do with being hurt so badly that you cant even think rationally. i kinda feel bad for you if you can just walk away or act like its not a big deal because that obviously means you didnt love them that much to begin with. i dont agree with such harsh actions but who knows what you might do? and this is not meant for one gender it goes both ways.

    • BABYGURLTJ

      YOU MAKE ALOT OF SENCE EVERYONE HAS BEEN HURT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER – I WAS WITH MY KIDS FATHER FOR 19 YRS HE CHEATED AND YES IT WAS VERY PAINFUL..BUT I CHOSE MY ACTIONS RIGHT AND WALKED AWAY..WASNT WORTH ME GOING TO JAIL AND LOOSING EVERYTHING I HAVE – PEOPLE WHO ACT IN SPITE OF THERE HURT HAVE SERIOUS ISSUES..A SANE PERSON THINKS BEFORE THEY REACT AND YES ITS HARD WHEN YOUR EMOTIONS ARE FLYING EVERY WHICH WAY – BUT EVERYBODY HAS THERE OPINIONS AND THEY ARE HEARD..

  26. Paul Renshaw

    If it was OK to her to do this to him she should be fair and nail the other person to the same cross… But that would be stupid huh? If he were to retaliate and kill her would this be sane. Or if the Law’s put her away for triple life took all her money and belongings is this justice? This could go on and on but I hope some one gets my purnt!

  27. melissa

    wow that looks bad maybe now guys might think twice before cheating on they old ladies but what she did was wrong i really feel for him

  28. Dianna

    Ouch! Sorry dude, that look like that hurt. Bet you wont f*ck with her no more.

  29. anon

    they shud do this to rapist and men who rape children…..so they can neva hurt anyone again….

  30. Ricky BoBBy

    They would all wander….”What happened to that nice girl?” Have’nt seen her in years…ever since she burned that guy. Strange thing whan people just vanish!

  31. Derrick

    Thats why you suppose to use a Motel. No hot grease there! Lol…

  32. OMG!!! I would never do this to my hubby HELL just leave easy as that than to spend time in jail,,,she needs help

  33. TBICKLEY

    IF YOU FEEL AS THOUGH YOU HAVE TO CHEAT THEM JUST WALK AWAY FROM WHAT YOU ARE IN. AS WE ALL CAN SEE IT AIN’T WORTH IT ON NEITHER SIDE. NO IT WASN’T RIGHT, BUT MEN HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DEALING WITH WOMEN, ALL YOUR LIVES, STARTING WITH MOM. HE GOT WHAT HE DESERVED, INSTEAD OF BRINGING SOME FUNKY NASTY DISEASE HOME TO HIS WIFE SHE SIMPLY NIPPED IT IN THE BUD OR HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD. WHERE IS IT RIGHT, NOWHERE. MEN ARE SHOOTING, STABBING, BURNING, STRANGLING THERE WIFES EVERYDAY BECAUSE THEY CAN’T EXCEPT THE FACT OF WE DON’T LOVE YOU ANYMORE, LET ME BE FREE AND LIVE MY LIFE, AND SOME WOMEN CAN’T EXCEPT THAT EITHER. THIS IS WHAT YOU DEAL WITH WHEN YOU HAVE A CRAZY PERSON ON YOUR HANDS WHO MALE OR FEMALE. STOP USING THE WORD LOVE LIKE YOUR DROPPING QUARTERS INTO A SLOT MACHINE… LOVE HURTS…

  34. Cassandra

    I can’t even imagine doing this to any man for cheating, if you find out that he’s cheated on you, and if you love/loved him, you grieve, cry until you’re all cried out, hold your head high, and move on. For the female that did this, I hope she is not gloating about this, because you are in for a fate that you have no earthly idea of what you’re about to face legally and in order for her to perform such a heinous act, this was premeditated, she had to heat the grease, right. I feel that she deserves whatever she gets.

  35. christine walker

    This is not looking good at all, but I am feeling it for you brother.

  36. mswatson34

    This saddens me to see so many of you cheering this woman on..it is a matter of values and morals. If someone is doing something against you, you have the right to walk away but you don’t have the right to disfigure them..its the same in a domestic violence case, men shouldn’t beat women and vice versa and in this case she could have simply walked away. What did she gain? a good feeling I burnt him for cheating on me & how will she ever have a successful relationship with this type of behavior. just leave!! Please remember one person DOES NOT own another married or not!! That is a slave owner mentality!! Get help counseling, prayer or something positive in your life this is very disturbing!!

  37. heather

    not saying he deserved it… but cheating is bull**** to begin with…. what the hell is the point… i am strongly against cheating never have never will so when i say karma is a b**** i mean it…. idiot shouldnt have been screwing someone else in the first place…. moron!!

  38. Evangeline Byars

    That’s sick i’m digusted.. lol… thats sick God bless him thats just sick. Hope he heals quick!!! In sane

  39. ray

    Cheating on a person requires work. It is much harder to go through the trouble of cheating than it is to stay true to the person you are with. I do not condone what this woman did, but the person in this pic should have really weighed the consequences of his actions before doing this. People snap all the time. It’s not right but it’s reality. All HE had to do was walk away and leave BEFORE getting with another woman. Why cheat? If he was unhappy, just leave. But when you go through the trouble of really hurting and betraying a person, you leave yourself to the risk of getting caught and the flood of emotions that follow. Again, I don’t think what she did was right, but what he did wasn’t either! Had he just left the relationship before getting with someone else, his balls would still be intact…

  40. Falconhawk

    This is Sick Phycho Dysfunctional Behavior Whether Comnited By A Woman or Man Its A Criminally Insane Minded person to Do Or Agree With A person Who Does Some Sh!T Like This!! Ladies think about the Times You have Cheated Did you Deserve This! We need GOD & Prayer

  41. Omg! This is wrong in so many levels.

  42. Tamantha

    One word D I V O R C E! Going to this measure will only ruin YOUR LIFE. He is not worth it!

  43. BETTERTHENYOU

    EVERYTIME I LOOK AT THIS I WANNA BEAT THE GIRLS ASS THAT DID THIS – THIS IS WRONG ON SO MANY LEVELS..FOR CHEATING!!!PEOPLE CHEAT EVERYDAY NOT SAYING ITS OK BUT WALK AWAY..

  44. you know that is sad if he played her then thats what some man do she didnt have to do this god alone could of handle this better then she did but its to late for all that girl you need help cause only a girl would do something like this a woman knows how to handle this if it would to happen to her (by walking away )now little girl your going have to sit in jail and think about what you have done was his joint that good wake up kid .SMH..

  45. wanda mclaurine

    seriously–i wonder how “it” will recover. after the skin returns or is grafted will erections be a problem—i’m talkin years from now

  46. Angela

    This is very wrong,and i think this woman is crazy.I hope she does’nt have any children or Step Children and i hope she never get to see a penis or have sex every again, use a dildo crazy woman,cause thats all ur going to get

  47. ok, i feel no way for this guy, he obviously couldnt settle with one woman, so get whats yours, and the lady who did it, she can play it off as a accident, unlike the chick who cut off homeboys shizz.you cant say well i was cutting onions and opps.atleast this chick can be like, i was making french fries and when i moved i tripped..none the less it aint happen to me, so haaaa.i have more respect to my queen! thus wouldnt mess around with another chick.

    there is a video that i saw somewhere in the middle east, where a woman got caught cheating on her husband, and they (the whole damm town/city) was there to beat her, and that they did, people taking videos, cell pics, boot stomping her, throwing stones, kicking her, until one guy finished her off by throwing a cylinder block on her head, and did it again, she was out dead…and the crowd went away….now that was wrong…….this guy got burnt…o big whoops…..hes allive, he prob wont be with noone sexually for a very long time, but burns heal…. death doesnt….

  48. christina

    I dont think this is real. make-up ..

  49. In third world countries, If a man is caught cheating on his Wife, his penis is cut off and tied to a hot air balloon and released. He is left to chase it down, if he catches it, its reattached….if not he bleeds to death. Woman, at birth are circumsized,clit removed, to prevent pleasure during sex, they are used to make babys and that is it. I dont condone cheating, I never have done it and never will, if I were ever cheated on, I can not say that I wouldnt go this far being emotionally destraught. None of us can. We dont know all the circumstances. However, I bet he learned his damn lesson……I would hope!!

  50. Fabian

    This is uncalled for …Suppose he wanted kids in the future .If someone cheats you move on end of story..Suppose somebody was to POUR HOT PEPPER SAUCE OR HOT GREASE in your Vagina….I hope this guy file charges and she gets life in Prison …So that the women in Prison kick her ass properly…I hope this woman rotten in Hell

  51. Ashley

    I’m not saying this is right but hell, maybe he deserved it. What if he cheated on her, gave her aids, herpes, genital warts, fucked her mother, her sister AND her brother? I would react the same way provided those circumstances. LOL.

  52. 'Tock

    Cheating or not..if a woman did that to me she shouldn’t ever stop running, because I would hunt her down and kill her. Not nearly as ruthless and dead quickly..but still dead.

  53. Linz Lou

    Wow… Really??? Move on woman… You don’t have to stoop to this level and do this… Move on!!! Ur crazyyyy!!!! & wrong

  54. Huntz

    hmmmmm…..that’s really a shame. He wasn’t even totin’…he need to stop cheatin’ w/that “average” weeee-weeeee anyway.

  55. TIFF

    LOL FUCK DAT IMA FEMALE BUT IF A BITCH THREW SUM GREASE 0N MY DICK IF I WAS A GUY I’LL FUCK HA ASS UP L0L DAT BITCH W0ULD B DEAD 4REAL D0E

  56. bre

    That is a terrible thing. I would be mad if my husband was cheating but as some one said I would move on. I would not go out to destroy anyone because in the end he will get his not from me but from God and the attorney, but there is a thing called forgiveness that should be shown also. There are questions that need to be asked too. Why did he cheat? Were you doing what you needed so that he would not cheat? So to hurt someone because they hurt you no it does not make any sense, we as women need to grow up and the same goes to men. If you are in a relationship and it is not going good communicate. Don’t cheat…

  57. it’s a criminal thing. and the woman must be in jail now. Cause no evidence that the man are cheating. And how Insolent women today.

  58. Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with how the situation went down, the fact to the matter is that none of us is privy to the extent of the relationship that went on between these individuals. We don’t know the endless lies that were told. How she waited up and around for him to take her out to only have her friends call her up to tell her that they’ve just seen her man out with some other female. We don’t know how he’s come home with passion marks on his neck or with the scent of another woman on her clothes.

    Conversely, we don’t know how she may have denied him intimacy or was more concerned with hanging out with the girls than spending time with her man. Or how she claims to be not cheating herself to only have it appear as though she is.

    The bottomline is simple. When you have relations outside the confines of marriage, you grow attached to the individual your sleeping with. Your emotions and feels are hard to turn off once turned on. Some women give all they have to men in hopes that they are receiving the same back. Hence, when they find out their man is cheating, they are beyond hurt. They are crushed. A part of them has been belittled, humiliated and disrespected. Hurt quickly turns to anger. Anger quickly turns to hate. Hate quickly turns to violence (for those women who chose to take matters in their own hands that is).

    Now, I’m not condoning what this young lady did, however, when you play with people’s feelings and emotions, you’ve got to lay in the bed of mess you’ve created. If you mislead people into thinking one thing when its another, you’re going to have to deal with the reaction you receive from them. In this instance, this young-lady chose to take matter in her own hands. He cheated with his penis, so the object which she attributed to his infidelity was dealt with.

    Whether right or wrong, she played judge and jury to the case he created.

    Let this be a lesson to all… Don’t Lie. Don’t Cheat. Don’t Mislead. Don’t Play Emotional Games with other people. Especially if you don’t know how they are going to react and respond to how you choose to mislead, lie, cheat and play games with their emotions and heart!

    • Islandboy

      AND if it’s YOU who have been lied to, cheated on and mislead, and decided that this is the course of action that you think you must take, remember that there are FURTHER consequences!

  59. loisburkes

    Who ever did that is going to the pin…Not smart ladies.Don’t take your own freedom away because of a CHEATING man!!! REALLY..

  60. Doc

    I love this woman. I’m a man, but I fuckin hate adulterers. I hope his member rots off after this. No sympathy for shitbags like him. If I ever cheated, I would deserve the same.

  61. raushanique

    thats what his ass get i would of burned it up kut it up and then threw it back to that bitch and fed it to her bet his ass wont cheat no mo

  62. Fabian Allen

    Some people he deserved ,we don’t have that right to determine this type of behavior with a human being….I have a Statment for all of you that said he deserved it: “Who so ever have not Sinned throw the first stone”

  63. tony the man that fucks your girl

    I think its great burn in hell and now your gay

  64. Tom

    Wow so i guess if my gf cheats on me i throw greas on her face and we can all laugh at it right hahahahahahaha yea im a do that.

    • sexy darkie

      it better to walk away with whatever dignity u have left because i sure she has ah brother an would not like any woman do him that smh she should b locked up

  65. to all who agree with what she did, ya’ll some sick mf’s. to the men, if u ever cheat on someone i hope the same thing is done to u. if u happen to be a woman, i hope he stick a hot curling iron in your vagina. now, this isn’t the first time he has cheated but she chose to stay with him. the reason i say that this isn’t the first time is because she had time to heat up grease and throw it on him (grease takes a couple of minutes to heat up). if someone is cheating on u, leave they ass and do better. stop being stupid simple bitches. if a nigga cheat on u, either forgive and let it go or move the fuck on. i have been cheated on but i’ll be damned if i give up my life for a worthless bastard. if i’m going to jail, i’m going to make sure it’s worth it.

  66. Islandboy

    It’s sad to see how so many women left comments in agreement to what happened here. Maybe for you, it’s closure, or a moment to exhale, but think of it as your brother or son getting this. I know for sure most of you will go bezerk and hunt down the woman that did it!

  67. alovelyprinces

    Its not that serious he has her mind twisted she dumb as a box of rocks get u ur mind right u knew he was cheating b4 this point u pur urself thru it

  68. Tzipporah

    That’s very sad that this happened to him. I don’t know the whole story. I don’t if he continuously cheated on her and she had enough. i don’t know if he was faithful and cheated on her once or a few times and it turned her mind inside out. I don’t know if she’s a truly insane and vengeful person. I don’t know if he meant to do it for selfish wants or desperate needs or to eventually get away from her to be with someone else. I don’t know if she knew what kind of man she had before and during the relationship and vice versa. I don’t know if he was sorry for it. I don’t know if she’s pity. But I do know what they BOTH did was wrong. I agree with those who say she took it too far which she did. That’s not how you solve a simpe situation. Let go and move on. I agree no matter the reason, cheating is wrong. She permanently scarred this man and possibly can’t have children again. That’s no one’s decision but him and God’s to make. But the main thing that sticks to me is what my mother told me since I was small…DON’T MESS, TEASE, BULLY, HURT, SCREW OR JUST PLAIN DO SOMEBODY WRONG! CAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOU’RE MESSING WITH! I’m not saying he deserved it cause he didn’t but in real life we have crazy people. In real life we have to be careful of how we treat people from the cook who’s cooking our meals to the police officer that can send people to jail. You don’t know if you just pissed off a guy who murdered 12 people but never got caught. You don’t know if you screwed over the con artist who later obtains your identity. You don’t know if you just messed with a corrections officer who remembers you and turns their head away while you’re being beat or raped in prison. You don’t know if you did a drug dealer, gang banger, or mobster wrong and now to get their payments or revenge is to kill and/or torture your family. You don’t know if you just teased a mentally illed or physically abused at home person who now is coming to school to shoot everybody up because of you! So he cheated on a woman who clearly had a twisted way of teaching him a lesson. He should’ve been more careful of his dirty deed which is DON’T CHEAT BECAUSE ITS WRONG! He suffered severe consequences for it. Wrong deed, wrong punishment, wrong man, wrong woman. Real life. End of story.
