I have avoided posting about them as every time I would write something I would get upset.
This whole situation is sad. The only positive thing is young people are talking about domestic violence. We have a long way to go however, as many of Chris Brown's young fans (mostly girls) blame Rihanna.
I assume they have not read the police report or seen photos of her injuries. I don't think it's okay for anyone, man or woman to put their hands on someone. Let's say for the sake of argument she hit him first. The injuries she had were not from self-defense. He beat the crap out of her. It was vicious and clearly he has some major issues.
I really cannot wrap my head around beating up someone you care about like this. I'm lucky in that I have never, nor have any of my friends or family members been in an abusive relationship. Abuse like this is not usually a one time kind of thing.
Many people have asked, why is she going back to him...she's rich, she has options. Maybe she feels guilty, like if she does broke up with him, she would be to blame for his career being over.
I'm not sure if his career will suffer. If Chris Brown had treated a pit bull that way he'd probably be in more trouble.
