Perhaps the most shocking tangent of the Rihanna and Chris Brown Domestic Violence incident is the apathy of young teens and their tendency to blame the woman for it. There have been various points of view on the issue…from discussing the role of media and the police in relation to the leaked pictures, teenagers’ reaction to the attack, Rihanna’s own response, the incident becoming fodder for pop art, to Chris’ childhood.
Here’s a tweet by NoMoreScams with a Tyra Banks video on the issue
"NoMoreScams: Tyra Banks On Domestic/Teen Violence:Chris Brown & Rihanna …: Tyra Banks join Opera Winfrey to discuss the.. http://www.itskylineblog.com/2009/04/tyra-banks-on-domesticteen.html
This Video is drawn from the Tyra Show and has excerpts from Tyra’s conversation with Oprah after the attack and with Rihanna and Chris themselves before the domestic violence case. She discusses Chris’s childhood and Rihanna’s background and exposes the vulnerability of children who live in domestic violence situations. But the question is…does a bad past justify Chris Brown’s actions?
I think it just brings into focus yet another symptom of domestic violence: Abused children in doemstic violence situations, who can grow up to be a cause themselves…or in Rihanna’s case…a victim.
