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!!”
