Gabrielle Union Rejects Rihanna's Act Of Violence In "Man Down"

Actress Gabrielle Union has added her two cents to Rihanna’s controversial video “Man Down”. Years ago Gabrielle Union decided to share with the public the horrific assault she endeared at 19 years old. Needless to say Rihanna’s video hit close to home. Gabrielle shared on her twitter,

“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!!”

What do you think of Gabrielle Union’s take on Rihanna’s “Man Down”?

    she is absolutely correct. rape is certainly evil, but most crimes are. only a fool would want to spend the rest of their life in jail by taking vengeance. we have a civilized court system. evil comes into everyone’s life. the people who handle it properly will likely go on to have a good life. time heals all wounds. those who dont, will suffer even on their deathbed. very few crimes are worthy of killing someone over.
