Jasson Melo, 24, was so proud of his abusive viral video that he tried to sell souvenirs quoting the footage, according to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.

“He bragged about the fact that he did it. He said she deserved it,” Assistant District Attorney Caitlin Connolly said in opening statements at Melo’s trial in Manhattan Supreme Court.

The couple’s relationship was “on the rocks” and the woman was thinking of moving back to the the Dominican Republic when she was shamed, the prosecutor said.
