It was NOT ok for Chris Brown to beat Rihanna. I don’t care what she said to him, it’s just not ok to hit your boyfriend/girlfriend. Even if she was picking at him a bit, he could’ve just left! I’ve heard people say that she deserved it. That’s not true. No matter what, you don’t deserve your boyfriend hitting you! I’ve heard others say that she did it to herself. That’s just…stupid on so many levels. The point is, in a relationship, violence is never the answer. It’s not ok to hurt someone just because you’re angry. If you think that it is, then you need professional help and you need to evaluate your mental health.
