Does Rihanna = Domestic Abuse?

Does Rihanna = Domestic Abuse?

Rihanna has been known to stand up for herself and not find any sh*ts to give. This time is no exception, Rihanna is pissed and for good reason. BadgalRiRi took to her Twitter, venting to her 37.2 million followers about just how mad she is.

The singer was supposed to perform on last Thursday’s NFL pregame show before the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburg Steelers game. CBS Sports decided that it would be in bad form to allow Rihanna to perform. But why?

This comes in light of the Ray Rice video and ban having occurred earlier in the week. Instead of letting it blow over, they didn’t. They cancelled Rihanna’s performance of ‘Run This Town’ and dedicated 25 minutes to Ray Rice. Host James Brown also made a speech on stopping domestic violence. On top of that, they had the audacity to move Rihanna to this Thursday’s segment…but we all know RiRi was not about that life.

Quite frankly, we are on her side. CBS Sports is basically associating her with domestic violence. It would have looked less bad if they kept her regular program.

CBS sports chairman made a statement to Sports Illustrated saying, “It’s important to realize we are not overreacting to this story but it is as big a story as has faced the NFL…We thought journalistically and from a tone standpoint, we needed to have the appropriate tone and coverage. A lot of the production elements we wanted in the show are being eliminated because of time or tone.”

The tone that is being set is that Rihanna is the poster woman for domestic abuse. Why is she still being punished for Chris Brown’s actions?

Domestic Abuse in Her Past

Back in 2009, pictures of Rihanna were leaked after her then boyfriend Chris Brown brutally beat her. The incident occurred in his car after she found a text from another woman. The domestic abuse charges rocked the media back then. It’s been five years, she is not the same person she was back then.

We all recognize Rihanna as one of the strongest and baddest b*tches in the game right now. The fact that she is able to recover from such a traumatizing experience provides a good role model for women in domestic abuse situations. She gives them the strength to know when to walk away.

CBS Sports didn’t think so. They basically judged her as damaged goods and a bad choice for the NFL’s incident of the week. Now that is some bull.

After Rihanna’s tweets, CBS has overall decided to drop her song from this Thursday too.

Psssht, as if she would have performed for them anyway.
