“Don’t tell me what it feels like to be punched,” Johnny replied as Heard added, “No, you’ve been in a lot of fights. You’ve been around a long time. You didn’t get punched, you got hit. I’m sorry I hit you like this, but I did not punch you! I did not f—ing deck you, I f—ing was hitting you. I don’t know what the motion of my actual hand was, but you’re fine. I did not hurt you, I did not punch you, I was hitting you. I’m not sitting here b—-ing about it here, am I? You are. That’s the difference between me and you. You’re a f—ing baby. YOU ARE SUCH A BABY! Grow the f— up, Johnny!”

“Yes, you did. You did the right thing, the big thing. You know what, you were admirable.”
