beat someone to a pulp

beat someone to a pulp

If someone beats another person to a pulp they injure them very badly by hitting them repeatedly. I tried to talk myself out of a fight and got beaten to a pulp instead by three other boys. Note: Other verbs can be used instead of beat. Motorists were pulled from their cars, kicked to a pulp, and left to die in the road.
