TIM MCGRAW made his first public comments about the woman he swatted for grabbing and ripping his jeans at his recent concert in Atlanta.  He made no apology, not that there should be . . . but he would like to move on.  He tells "ET Canada", quote, "Sometimes things can lose context and perspective.  I reacted in an instinctive, defensive way from my perspective of what was going on.  I think it was an unfortunate situation, I think all the way around.   "But it happened, it happened in a split second, it was pure instinctive reaction, I think you just got to move on.  It is one of those things that happen, nobody feels good about it, but there's nothing that could be done about it.   "You are in that position, you are out there, you are vulnerable, things happen and sometimes you react.  There's nothing to be said about it." 

Here's a new, extended version of the video that shows the same woman SLAPPING his BACKSIDE twice before she even gets to the grabbing and ripping.
