Whatever Johns reasons for violence there is no doubt whatsoever that he was an exceptionally tough guy. There is evidence of him leathering audience members in both Hamburg and Liverpool and very few people stood up to him because of his propensity for violence. Paul even admitted that he hided behind it a bit.   

Which is why, when looking at his life as a whole, Yoko should be commended for showing John a better way.

She really was who he needed, in spite of all the narratives out there.

Especially in the modern age, there is a trend of calling out past behaviour. It does annoy me when John gets raked over the coals as if it’s some big revelation. He openly spoke about it all, particularly in his last interviews. If he were alive, how many times would he be expected to repeat regrets before being allowed to move on? John being a darker, troubled soul with caustic wit is actually part of why I love him, and I understand others just won’t understand that. Which makes him their least favourite Beatle. The general populace is hoodwinked with the Imagine caricature. 

What you’re leaving out is that, while John was open about being violent, he continued being violent. He screamed at four year old Sean so loudly, the kid had to be taken to the hospital. Four year olds are babies. There’s no reason to ever scream at them, so to do it to the point it becomes physical harm is disturbing. You don’t get to admit to being abusive, say you regret those actions, continue abusing people, and all be forgotten. It doesn’t work like that.

I’ve also heard that John Lennon never actually threw a punch at Paul McCartney , unlike in the film: Nowhere Boy.

Paul said that it didn’t happen, and I don’t think there is any significant evidence that it did. Nowhere Boy is fictional to some extent.
