Tim McGraw's publicist plays down fan slap video

Tim McGraw's publicist is playing down video footage posted online that appears to show the country star slapping a female fan at a concert.

The damning footage was taken at a show in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday, while McGraw was walking into the crowd. Reports suggest he turned on the unnamed fan after she grabbed his manhood, but his publicist tells TMZ.com the incident looked a lot worse than it was, stating, "Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn't let go as he was moving through the crowd. "He instinctively swatted to try to keep them from ripping his jeans, which they succeeded at doing, and so he could get to more fans who could slap hands with him before the end of the show."
