Rihanna and Chris Brown

I’m sure you have all heard the report that Chris Brown was arrested (and then released on a $50,000 bail) for allegedly attacking his girlfriend Rihanna. It is the big celebrity story going on right now, so I wasn’t going to Blog about it. But, I am in the blogging mood so I am giving in to put my comments out there too about this.

News feeds are coming in what seems like hourly since the attack took place. I’ve been checking up on TMZ more often than my usual 1-2 times per day followed by TMZ on TV at night (though often I watch it the next morning because I TiVo it). Anyways. It is big news.

As stated on TMZ, "according to the police report, Chris received a text message from a woman who wrote about getting together, and an argument erupted." Hell yeah and Rihanna is not to blame for that! What is she supposed to do just sit there and let her man get booty calls? Hell no!

Oh, also sources are now saying that this is not the first time he has abused her. A cheater and a history of violence. What a catch girls. I hope Rihanna never takes him back. She has got to be stronger than that (I hope)!

Also, if you watch TMZ on TV you know the camera guys always ask celebrities either stupid questions or questions about other celebrity stories going on right now. So, they have been asking hip-hop/rappers and Brown’s friends what they think of the whole situation going on between Rihanna and Chris Brown. It infuriates me how they aren’t taking a stand for the abused Rihanna. Come on people! Sure, he isn’t charged and in prison or on probation yet, and there is the whole “innocent before proven guilty” our country has. But really, answers like “He’s a good guy” just does not make sense to me! He was arrested for BEATING HER UP and THREATENING TO KILL HER! How is that a “good guy”?!??! Also, claiming “I didn’t know the circumstances” is not an excuse either! When is it ever okay to beat up a woman?!?!? Ugh! I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!

It is truly appalling that people condone this sort of behavior. I hope she takes a stand against violence and leaves him. I also hope she takes it and teaches others that violence against anybody is wrong.

Chris Brown? Really? Hes so young? So "Un-threatening" I dont get it! Also Rihanna can do know wrong! Thats the truth!

I've been following this story too. I can't believe that this happened between them! It is so sad and infuriates me that people can take the guy's offense on this. There is NEVER an "OK" time to beat up a woman! NEVER!

Also - LOVE the Zoolander quote you added in there! LMAO!!!

Yeah. I hope that they (the judge/jury whatever happens) makes an example out of him and punish him severely. It is not okay for him to get away with this.
