We were all shocked when Chris Brown beat up Rihanna in his car after the music awards they attended together. According to the article, Rihanna had Chris Brown’s phone and was using it without his permission, as she looked through his phone. Apparently, he lost it and just started beating her up. Pictures immediately circulated of her face beat up with bruises and she poses sad looking down, rather into the camera. Chris Brown was charged and was taken to court. The whole attention was on how bad Chris Brown is and how Rihanna is the ‘victim’ and she did nothing wrong. All the celebrities turned again Chris Brown and fans turned against him too. In the article, it mentions that Chris had said earlier that his father used to beat up his mom that it affected him so much that he turned to his girlfriend and did the same to her. This doesn’t give him any reason to do that, however, but according to the court, it is a possible reason for this aggressive attack. The media has a huge way of changing the line of the story. In every article, they mainly focused on how Chris Brown just started to beat her up. In reality, she was the one who started all of this. In the car, after the awards that night, she grabbed his phone out of his head while he was driving and was opening his messages, after asking her with respect not to look, she stared swearing at him heavily and acting like she is greater than him. After that, he punched her. He did not kill her however and I am not fighting for him, but it’s just annoying how the media likes to take sides. He was mistaken and apologized all of times on national TV and nobody took that in consideration. How is he supposed to act normal and alleviate that from happening again if the media won’t get off of his back. 2 years later, Rihanna went back to Chris Brown and started to date him, publicly. Why would she do that if he was completely wrong and she went on TV fighting for women’s rights to walk away from men who abuse them. She’s a hypocrite so is the media. Nobody saw her face as bruised as the photos were, they probably edited it like they do with everything. The idea of her dating him publicly and admitting it to Oprah, shows that a part of her knows that he is blamed more from the media than he should have been, and that she has a huge part of this thing, and she did not even step up once to apologize to what she has done. She did not stand up for anything because the media was too busy making her a ‘hero’ in front of everyone and she was enjoying it, which lead her to release an album during that time for more publicity and success as he hid in the dark for along time.
