Not knowing whether the man was violent but not prepared to stand by, this brave young woman did something no one else was prepared to do and here we have the story.


The whole thing ended in tears as the woman couldn't help but break down as the incident came to a crescendo despite her bravery in initially intervening.

What Would You Do? is a TV show that uses hidden cameras to capture how the public interacts with scenes performed by actors. Often these scenes involve criminality or socially unacceptable situations and sees how members of the public would react to these situations, if at all.

In one episode, it showed a confrontation in public where a boyfriend aggressively shouts at his partner in a supermarket to the shock of many onlookers. However, the only person to step-in was a 19-year-old.


With the couple started a domestic argument, the man shouts at the woman who looks on the verge of tears to which he reacts angrily to shouting "You’re gonna start crying now?” Deliberately trying to belittle her, he then says, “Are you finished telling everybody our problems?” followed by “Why did I marry you?”

Although these words are incredibly hurtful, does it give you the right to intervene? It raises the question as to what happens behind closed doors and should you get involved? “Move!” the man shouts as well as “You’re such an idiot! Come on – hurry up!” as four young men walk by, their attention is caught by the couple but they decide to walk on.

It is, however, when the verbal assault continues and the man spouts the particularly vicious line “And you wonder why I cheated on you?” that grabs the attention of a young woman who then starts to keep a close watch on the pair.

As the woman then burst into tears and walks away, the young onlooker grabs her sleeve and asks her if she is okay. She then goes on to say  “Don’t let somebody talk to you like that, I don’t even know you. You don’t deserve that.” At this point, the man walks back up to his partner.

Trying to usher his partner away, the young onlooker says to the woman "Don’t go. You’re not going,” before turning to the man and saying “She’s not going.”

The onlooker's mother then tries to get involved by turning to her daughter and saying “I understand you want to help, but you are a child.”

Undeterred the onlooker continues to speak to the man “She’s not going anywhere.” “You’re not allowed to take her ’cause my dad’s a cop and he’s coming here, okay?” It’s only then that other people get involved to break things up.

It is at this point the show’s host, John Quiñones, reveals himself to the young woman, who immediately bursts into tears. Mom recognizes him and says she was afraid for her daughter. Martina, the only person to stand up to the bullying man, bursts into tears realizing what is happening.

Comforting the young woman, the actress playing the assaulted woman thanks her for her bravery. With so many others in the store, it took a 19-year-old to stand up to a grown man who was verbally abusing his wife. This scenario may not have been real, but it’s a situation that could play out anywhere.
