I think it was humour mostly. Snooki getting decked is worth a few chuckles, regardless of race, gender, or creed.
And your use of is conveying self-righteousness, yes?
Snooki annoys me as much as anyone else and I don't find that gif "worth a few chuckles".
That kind of attack would "auto-provoke" me into a confrontation with any guy I saw that did that. Even if I'm the one who ends up getting the worst of it. Don't care if someone accuses me of trying to be a "hero" or "white knight" or "self-righteousness". I like to live naturally and trust my feelings. Standing up for the weak is how I feel as a man. "protecting the family" should put women and children on any guys list.
Unfortunately greed(as a form of our competitive nature, and survival instincts) in many people, leads them to only worry about themselves or their own family/friends too often. If you ever put yourself in other people's shoes constantly, like I do, then you get an interesting perspective.
