Rihanna May Return to Chris Brown…And Everyone Hates Her.


With blogs hot and bothered with the possible reunion of Rihanna and Chris Brown, we’re distracted by the resulting anti-Rihanna backlash.

Headlines like “Rihanna: Role Model No More?” and “How Could Rihanna Take Back Chris Brown?” seem to punish her for making a questionable decision during a difficult time. Then there’s the implication that she’s somehow asking for it again…and that folks won’t be as sympathetic next time. After all, she’s somehow to blame.

But blame? Why have we stopped asking Brown why he hit her in the first place? Why has his alleged violence become about her weakness and failures as a woman?

What do you think of the backlash against her?
