Especially since that girl started out by just expressing her disappointment. (Her later comments totally crossed the line, but yeah, it stared out so harmless.)

Telling someone you have no respect for them when you don't even know the whole story is not harmless.

Rihanna got back together with a boychild who beat her. What part of that is "not knowing the whole story"?

Where's the undeniable proof that they got back together? Don't worry, i'll wait.

lol @ you. bitch please. Of course they are. Keep waitin, its only a matter of time.

Rihanna crossed a line with this chris brown bullshit. fans are pissed, and rightly so. it was a dumb move. why do I have to explain this to you?

I'm not sure how fair it is to say that she crossed a line. I mean the one thing we know for certain about this situation is that she's an abuse victim, and another thing we know in general is that oftentimes victims do go back to their abusers. Obviously I hope he's not beating her again, but there's really no way to know what kind of headspace she's in :/

I'm trying really, really hard to get into this frame of mind with thinking about this situation, but I find it really difficult. She wasn't reliant on CB for any type of support, financial or otherwise, and she had a whole damn team and fanbase supporting her recovery and subsequent rise. That, combined with her now obnoxiously immature "In your face!" tweets are really leaving me angry. Her actions are seemingly making light of unpublicized, serious domestic cases in which the victim really doesn't have a choice, doesn't have money and a foundation of support to help them.

I hope he never lays a finger on her again, he's shitty enough of a person without the abusive side. And you're right, none of us know her personally. But I've seen the pictures, read the report, watched CB burn the bridge he stood on and rooted for Rihanna and praised her strength. And now, when one of her fans expresses their disappointment in her decision-making skills, Rihanna loses her shit. That's what I see, and that's unfortunately what everyone else sees as well.

Re: her reliance on him, even though she doesn't depend on him financially, given that he was abusive physically, I'm assuming he was emotionally as well. Even if she does have people around her who care about her, it's possible he has put the idea in her head that that's not true, making sure she's emotionally dependent on him. Her response to the girl, insulting her appearance WAS out of line and low and catty, but the girl's follow up replies were even worse.

Muthafucka, you aint gotta explain shit to me. I choose to wait for proof, you choose not to. Rihanna hasn't crossed any lines and those "fans" don't have any right to be pissed at her. She is a grown woman who is capable of making her own decisions.

Riiiiight. Because making several songs with your abusive ex is appropriate, and then creating subsequent immature tweets when your fanbase is upset is totally justified.

Go forth! CARRY ON

It took 3 years for the industry to take back Chris, and still not even all that completely.

Than you.

Honestly, I think making "an I wanna fuck the shit out of you" song with your domestic abuser is super tacky and probably not the right move, but since Rihanna is the victim, I honestly think that it's her job to try do what makes her feel comfortable or empowered in the situation and if it ends up not making her feel good, to make those mistakes. She may make mistakes; a lot of people in her situation do. We shouldn't be foisting judgement on her. People in her inner circle should be listening closely to her and offering good advice.

omg fucking seriously. I was so disappointed that so many people around her were acting like he "made a mistake". Like, what kind of message does that send??

There's plenty of disappointment in this situation to go around, tbh.
