Rihanna has responded to the Parents Television Council and the many critics of her new music video “Man Down”, in which the R&B singer kills a man at the beginning.

RiRi took to her Twitter account and said the following:

Below is the statement the Parents Television Council released:

“Instead of telling victims they should seek help, Rihanna released a music video that gives retaliation in the form of premeditated murder the imprimatur of acceptability.”

We think they’re making this whole thing into a way bigger deal than it has to be…..no one attacks movie stars for displaying actions of violence.

Tell us your thoughts on the matter…..is RiRi’s “Man Down” video pushing it or is everyone making a big deal over nothing?
