Algerian star Rafik Saifi slaps female reporter after World Cup loss to United States

Algeria star slaps female reporter

South Africa – Algeria soccer star Rafik Saifi slapped a female journalist across the face as the aftermath of the United States’ dramatic World Cup victory turned ugly at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Wednesday night.

While walking through the interview zone, Saifi spotted writer Asma Halimi, who works for Algerian newspaper Competition, and struck her with his open hand in front of dozens of witnesses. Halimi responded by striking the player in the mouth.

Saifi then threw a sports drink bottle at a wall in the interview area, as Halimi was ushered away by security staff.

Saifi came on as substitute for the last five minutes of the USA’s 1-0 victory.

“I said nothing to him and he reached over and hit me,” Halimi said to Yahoo! Sports. “So I hit him back. I said nothing to him first.”

I wonder if him being a Muslim has anything to do with it? I mean, women should be treated like animals right? What a sissy. I'm glad she hit him back.

That "muslim" idea? Right on, I think. But do we know that all the men on the US team are men? Just askin'

It's a shame she wasn't able to beat the ever-lovin' crap out of the hateful coward.

Good for her! If there were any real men in the room they would have dogpiled that sissy pig masquerading as a man and beat the crap out of him.
