In light of the controversy surrounding Rihanna‘s new “Man Down” video, actress Gabrielle Union has shared her thoughts on it’s concept and the shooting scene at the beginning of the video.
Peep what she had to say on Twitter below:
“Saw “Man Down” by Rihanna. Every victim/survivor of rape is unique, including how they THINK they’d like justice [to] be handed out. [During] my rape I tried [to] shoot my rapist, but I missed. Over the years I realized that killing my rapist would’ve added insult to injury. The DESIRE [to] kill someone who abused/raped [you] is understandable, [but] unless it’s self defense in the moment to save your life, just ADDS to your troubles #mandown. I repeat SELF DEFENSE 2 save yourself/protect yourself, I’m ALL for. Otherwise victim/survivor taking justice into your own hands with violence equals more trouble for you!!”
Couldn’t be put any better…..wise words, Miss Union.
