How would you react if someone said this about your wife?

Here’s what Nick had to say in response to Eminem’s diss, “The Warning.”
“Quote of the day: ‘Never argue with fools because from a distance people can’t tell who is who,’ ” he tweeted Friday to kick things off. What followed was a series of inspirational quotes (and even a Bible quote) apparently intended to defuse the situation and ultimately put “The Warning” in the past. “Be patient in the moment of anger and escape a hundred days of sorrow!” (often erroneously cited as a Chinese proverb) he followed up. Four minutes later, he tweeted Booker T. Washington’s quote, “I will permit no man to narrow or degrade my soul by making me hate him.” Cannon also suggested that a reprisal from either he or Carey was unlikely. “Never take your own revenge,” he wrote, quoting the Bible, “but rather give place unto the wrath. For it is written that vengeance is mine, I will repay … PREACH!” (from Romans 12:19). Also in there was another Bible quote, “I will bless those that bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse,” from Genesis 12:3.
While the tweets began as apparent attempts at keeping the peace, they became a little more pointed by the time Cannon wrapped up. “No one but a fool would measure their satisfaction by what the world thinks of him,” he wrote, quoting Irish poet Oliver Goldsmith. Just after that, he tweeted, “Trying to save a hater is like trying to teach astrophysics to a wino!” (apparently an original line).
