I read somewhere that this group put together a PSA that's obviously based on the Rumble in the Lambo, even though it doesn't say so, and I figured it might be cool, in that it's probably the closest we're gonna get to actual snuff footage.
So I watched it, and, yeah, it was pretty entertaining. (My bad, ladies.) I wish the violence would have been a bit more convincing, but it's a trip to watch something you've been thinking about for so long now actually play out in real life. It's like that amazing video MTV's been running of the party Biggie was at the night he was assassinated.
But then it got to the end, and I thought to myself, Hold on a sec. I thought Rihanna hit first. In fact, I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that it says so in the documents on which this clip is so obviously based. And yet, they make it seem like Chris Brown just flipped out on Rihanna for having the sheer balls to read his text message. (Which is definitely a violation, if not necessarily actionable.)
Let me guess - this video was put together by some so-called feminists, and they didn't want to make Rihanna look bad by revealing the fact that she struck first. As if her attacking him would make him attacking her the way he did justifiable. (Understandable, sure. Justifiable? Not so much.) It makes you wonder what their real goal is here.
If their real goal was to help prevent teen domestic violence, why not present an act of teen domestic violence the way it would really happen, i.e. the girl gets out of pocket, and the guy, rather than taking the moral high ground, goes ahead and uses his fists?
I can't help but be reminded of when Common did that commercial to try to get out the vote in California, in last year's presidential election, and come to find out, the group that put it together was just some Mexican group trying to open the border up.
It just goes to show: a lot of these charities are bullshit.
