Gotti brothers get beaten up.

Gotti brothers get beaten up.
Growing up Gotti‘s Carmine and John got their asses kicked over the weekend at a Long Island mall, according to Page Six. A witness says that the boys noticed a 15-year-old girl at the Roosevelt Field Mall and “pinched her butt and made disgusting comments.” That’s when her brother jumped them. The source says:

Next thing you know this kid was really beating the crap out of Carmine. All the Gotti friends were taking cheap shots, punching and kicking the back of this kid’s head, but he didn’t care. He just continued to beat Carmine till he was bloody, and then he went after John and whupped him, too. He was in a zone, repeating, ‘Not my sister. I don’t care who you are.’ And the Gottis’ crew couldn’t hold him back. The whole crowd of people was cheering, adults were coming up to the kid after the fight and congratulating him. He really showed those boys they aren’t above the law.
