Husband says social media ruined marriage

Husband says social media ruined marriage

Editor's note: HLN's Raising America will be talking with the husband today at 12 p.m. ET on HLN

A video of a woman's emotional meltdown -- the last fight she had with her husband before he left her -- was removed from YouTube on Sunday for violating the website’s bullying rules.  

But the video showing the woman kicking, screaming and wailing has gone viral across the Internet. Click here to watch the video. But be warned:  It contains strong language, and the ugly argument made some of our staff cringe.  

"Social media ruined my relationship," the woman's husband told HLN. For purposes of this interview, he asked to only be referred to as Jim. 

He captured the video and uploaded it to YouTube on Saturday. Jim said he resorted to that after his wife posted negative things about him on social media. 

"Once we got married, our relationship took a nose dive. It became a one sided battle," he told HLN. "She would tell all of her friends that I'm this big, bad guy, and I've done everything wrong." Those complaints were often posted on her Facebook account, he said. 

In the video, Jim and his soon-to-be ex-wife argue over whether or not they can spend time at the lake. He tells her he has been working long hours and needs to run errands. That's when the fight begins. 

Jim eventually told his wife he had been recording her. He said that made her stop for a while, but things heated up again. By the next morning, it was clear to him the relationship was over, he said. 

HLN has been unable to reach Jim’s wife for comment.
