Rihanna and Chris Brown

“Robyn F. turned to face Brown and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand. He then drove away in the vehicle and continued to punch her in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand. The assault caused Robyn F.’s mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle.”

That’s one of the many disturbing statements from the police report for Chris Brown and Robyn F., who is known as Rihanna, that was just released to the public. The rest involves Chris Brown saying he’s going to beat the shit out of her, smashing her head against the window, and causing several contusions all over Rihanna’s body. I’m sure everyone has already seen the picture of her bloody, swollen face from after the incident.

It has been three years since it happened, but the conversation of what happened seems to be resurfacing everywhere, with Chris Brown winning a Grammy (which he shouldn’t have even been nominated for), the recent rumors of them getting back together, and their collaborations on each other’s songs (that I refuse to listen to). So, I’m not even going to touch the abuse aspect of this. It’s horrible; Chris Brown should be in jail, end of story.

Pushing that aside, I want to talk about the sudden reaction I have been seeing from people, like the media, my friends, and stupid little teenage girls wanting to get in Chris Brown’s pants.

I’ll start with the forgiving media for letting it slide because of the fact he’s a celebrity, decent at lip syncing, and a great dancer. Not only was he invited to the Grammy’s, he performed and then went on to win. Did they forget that he beat up a woman who also happened to be performing the same night? Maybe I’d be less annoyed if he seemed just the least bit apologetic about it. Instead, he took to twitter after the Grammy’s and had a message for his haters:

The tweets were deleted shortly after, but unfortunately for him, the internet never forgets.

As much as I love my friends, sometimes I can’t believe what comes out of their mouths. We were standing in line at Wal-Mart and somehow the topic came up. I went on about how much I think Chris Brown is an ass and deserves to be in jail, but their reactions made me stop and think… are you serious? Not naming any names, they agreed that we don’t know the whole story and Rihanna probably had it coming and should have known not to press Chris Brown’s buttons. My friends say a lot of cringe-worthy things, but I think this tops it all. How could they possibly believe that anyone “has it coming” when they are abused by their partner? I don’t care what Rihanna could have said or done for him to react like that; it’s never okay, not in any situation. I know that Chris Brown has a history with abuse, watching his mother get beaten by his father, but that’s still no excuse.

The night of the Grammy’s I found an article that was compiled of tweets from a handful of girls after watching Chris Brown’s performance.

These are just two of the 25 that were listed. There is just so much wrong with that, I don’t even know where to start. Because someone is “hot” means that it’s okay for them to beat you up? Is that really what girls these days are thinking? I just pray to God they aren’t being literal, or else I fear for their future relationships.

As for Rihanna, I hope she doesn’t go back to him because the end result can be much worse.
