The innocence in this video is overwhelming!
What happened when a film crew tells these young Italian boys to slap a girl?
Well, they weren't immediately asked to have their palms meet the girls face, so it's not a surprise why we were worried.

After being told to compliment her, then caress the girl's face, they were told to slap her!
Um, talk about rude!
However, the boys weren't having it, even AFTER being egged on! Each one refused to harm the girl and each gave a heartwarming reason as to why they didn't!
According to the creators, the social experiment is to spotlight just how children react to violence against women… and that learning how to treat others comes early!
