assalamu alaikum rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

is it true that Hazrat Umar did beat Abu Hurairah, because he narrated so much hadiths about Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)? I was googling about him. His nickname is adoring. When I was watching mufti menk video on life of Abu huirayah, and looked at comment section. some people says that he was liar, and was beaten by Umar. Is this true? I don't believe this.

Please clarify it.
